Stray voltage means voltage conditions on electric facilities that should not ordinarily exist. Such incidents are caused by one or more factors, such as damaged cables; deteriorated, frayed or missing insulation; improper maintenance; or improper installation.
PULS offers stray voltage testing and Inspection requirements that are designed to assure that every electric facility is tested for stray voltage. The stray voltage testing is conducted on all facilities that are capable of conducting electricity such as: street lighting, metallic components of overhead distribution and transmission lines, traffic control signals, and related devices and equipment associated with underground facilities.
PULS Inspectors follow an established procedure when a stray voltage condition is found using qualified voltage detection devices. PULS, Inc. uses hand-held GPS systems that allow Inspectors to confirm the location and/or add additional information for any facility to an existing database.
PULS provides all data/information collected during stray voltage testing to the customer in a format of their choice.
As part of our right-of-way Electrical Utility services, PULS performs visual inspections for any damaged, broken, missing, potentially hazardous or otherwise non-serviceable facilities. Inspection services can include internal, external, and ground line examinations through either traditional methods or utilizing the latest resistance and density measuring technologies.
