Product Information

Suparule 600 cable height meter

The Suparule Cable Height Meter is a handheld meter for measurement of cable sag, cable height distance, and overhead clearance of conductors. It is a modern alternative to telescopic measuring poles. The Suparule Cable Height Meter utilises ultrasonic signals to determine the height of overhead cables up to 23m, 75feet (only with CHM600E). Used by line operators within the utilities industries, e.g., electricity and telecommunications, the CHM190 measures the height of a single wire, the CHM300 and CHM300E measure up to 3 wires, while the CHM600 and CHM600E models measure up to 6 wires.
How it works
The Cable Height Meter emits short bursts of sound which originate from the cone-shaped transmitter. The microprocessor in the instruments calculates the elapsed time for the bursts of sound to be reflected from the cable back to the instrument. The result can be displayed in either feet and inches (imperial), or meters (metric) format. To account for the fact that speed of sound varies with temperature, a temperature sensor, mounted at the front of the instruments, senses the actual air temperature, and automatically compensates.
The Cable Height Meter is capable of measuring up to six cables (provided they are within range). This is accomplished by standing directly beneath the cable and aligning longitudinally (looking down the line). Simply press the "ON" button to power up the instrument, and allow the temperature to stabilize. Press the 'MEASURE' button and, if necessary, gently "rock and tilt" the instrument until a stable reading is obtained.
Applications include height measurement of:
Telephone lines
Distribution lines
Transmission lines
Cable television
Street lighting
SAG (lowest point to ground)
Clearances on construction sites
The unit also provides a safer way to measure cable heights on highly congested roadways. Additionally the Cable Height Meters offer an easy way to check whether the device has remained in calibration since its purchase date. Switching to 'CAL' mode also allows the instruments to be used indoors.

Can the CHM be used straight away to take measurements? 
The Cable Height Meter takes into account temperature to measure the speed of sound traveling in air. If there are sudden temperature changes, i.e. from a warm car in winter to cold icy ground, leave the unit to adjust for a few minutes. The temperature will begin dropping on the display, and will need to stabilise to get accurate, reliable readings.
How best to position the cable height meters to take a measurement of clearance to ground from overhead conductors? 
Position the unit on the ground, directly underneath the cable to be measured. Align the unit in the direction of the cable, with the cone pointing towards the cable.
