LineVision leverages advanced sensors and analytics to monitor, optimize and protect overhead line and pipeline assets. Our patented non-contact sensor technologies continuously monitor the condition of critical energy delivery infrastructure, ensuring optimal, safe and reliable operation.
LineVision is not simply selling equipment. We provide turnkey systems including installation technical direction, maintenance, software licenses, connectivity and warranty. This approach ensures that we are partnered with our utility clients and committed to their success. Key pillars of our turnkey systems include:
LineVision provides the industry’s only non-contact overhead line monitoring solution, with simplified installation, increased flexibility, and lower costs than traditional conductor-mounted systems. LineVision’s proven system integrates over 15 years of development and experience gained from having over 5,000 units deployed along with validation from some of the world’s leading utilities and system operators.
The V3 System for electric utilities is the only system that can monitor all conductors in a circuit with just one system, allowing for complete visibility of the asset instead of just one phase. It combines two patented LineVision technologies for unrivaled accuracy and ease of installation. Each V3 monitor contains the proven EMF sensor for collecting real-time data on the line’s electrical properties, while the optical sensor tracks each conductor’s precise position. LineVision’s flexible non-contact system can be mounted on the tower structure, eliminating the need for costly specialized equipment or difficult to obtain outages.
PACT systems for pipeline owners and operators utilize one or more of the patented EMF sensors to determine local electric and magnetic field information and the high voltage AC power line’s current flow (amps), conductor phase arrangement, and more. The non-contact PACT systems are installed within pipeline right-of-way easements to ensure optimal protection against AC interference and corrosion.
At LineVision, we believe that you can’t manage what you don’t measure. By continuously monitoring overhead lines and delivering accurate real-time data, historical data, and alerts, we’re helping our clients improve the operation and management of their overhead line and pipeline assets. LineVision leverages advanced analytics and machine learning to detect anomalies indicative of damage or loss of asset health for overhead line owners and increased levels of corrosion risk due to AC interference for pipeline owners.
Our cloud-based architecture is designed to ensure essential LineVision data is accessible to our clients securely, reliably and in real-time, wherever they are located.
For utilities, the available information includes:
- Real-Time Dynamic Line Ratings (DLR)
- Forecasted Line Ratings (1-48hrs)
- Short Term Emergency Limits
- MW, MVAR, Power Factor
- Conductor Sag / Clearance
- Conductor Blowout / Horizontal Displacement
- Conductor Tension
- Conductor Temperature
- Icing and Galloping Detection
- Site-Specific Weather Data
- Magnetic Field In Corridor
- Asset Health & Remaining Conductor Life
The system integrates survey data, line parameters, operational history and weather to maintain a digital twin of the expected position of the conductor. Actual monitor data is then continuously compared to the digital twin to give customers essential operational data, alerts and forecasts.
For pipeline operators, they include:
- Magnetic and Electric Field In Corridor
- MW, MVAR, Power Factor
- Power Line Loading (amps)
- Conductor Phase Arrangement
Industry Standards and End-to-End Security
LineVision has taken unprecedented steps to safeguard the security of our utility and pipeline operator clients. By adopting ISO 27001 policies, we have committed to industry best practices for information security controls. Our end-to-end data handling pipeline utilizes state of the art technologies such as encryption and VPNs to protect against cyber attacks and ensure NERC CIP compliance. A leading independent security testing company has conducted rigorous testing of LineVision’s device and application-level security and provided an attestation.
The data we offer clients is available to clients through a secure web interface and/or encrypted data feed for EMS integration. LineVision supports leading protocols for system integration including DNP3, ICCP and OSISoft’s OMF.
LineVision is committed to leveraging industry standards team members are contributing members of CIGRE and IEEE PES. We utilize the latest industry-standard line rating and forecasted methodologies to ensure compliance and reliable management of overhead lines.
