IMPulse unveiling cable theft detection system

Posted on October 13, 2014

IMPulse NC LLC is the leading U.S. manufacturer for overhead contact wire (catenary) hardware, with products worldwide through its Ohio Brass heritage dating back to 1888. The company is always innovating with new technology and customers will find the latest products on display at its booth during EXPO.

New this year is a Cable Theft Detection system that uses the revolutionary Spread Spectrum Time-Domain Reflectometry (SSTDR), made possible by LiveWire Innovation. This allows users to see into the cable environment and watch for changes without interfering with the wire circuit. It works on live and de-energized cables that will immediately transmit any alert or event wirelessly. Cable theft does not have to happen, and now, you can protect your cable investments.

In addition, IMPulse NC was recognized as a Champion of Change by the White House for its 21st Century Transportation Technology to monitor and detect changes in a catenary system via IMProOCS. The IMProOCS technology saves time, money and improves service while automatically providing safety and security protection. Requiring no utility connection, the solution sends alerts wirelessly in real-time detecting all overhead line movements. It is also easy to install (bolt-on), with no interference to the existing system. To learn more about IMProOCS, view the company’s video on its website.

See IMPulse NC for all of your OCS/catenary needs, from electric trolleybus, to modern and vintage streetcars, light rail, commuter and freight rail, with products in service from 600v DC to 50,000v AC. The company provides detailed design, installation support, training and service manuals to meet your time sensitive requirements and conforming to ISO 9001:2008.
IMPulse is a Marmon/Berkshire Hathaway company and a Bronze LiveWire Innovation Sustainability firm.
