Underground High Voltage Cable Network is an Affordable Solution - Providence, RI

Joseph Coupal - Friday, September 05, 2014

Underground high voltage cable networks in Providence, RI serve as an effective alternative to the aerial cables or overhead lines for various reasons, particularly for critical concerns. Overhead lines represent a majority of transmission throughout the world, but they are often considered unattractive in selected environments that are esthetically sensitive. Nowadays, underground cable systems continue to be implemented in congested, high-profile areas where installation of such is more profitable or practical.

Installing cables underground allows for efficient transmission across densely populated areas. And because these cables are located below the ground, they are less prone to damage from severe weather conditions such as strong wind, snow and lightning. As a result, interruptions may be less frequent. Underground high voltage cable network installation can also be considered for reducing the range of electromagnetic fields or EMF emission above ground that can cause negative effects on health.

Cable utilization practices have been rapidly changing through time with respect to configurations of systems and methods of installation. The benefits you get from the design, installation, and construction methods used in underground high voltage cable networks outweigh the technical and cost issues of these cables. They create a system that has been engineered to be reliable and durable and that functions at substantially lower cost.

To determine if underground high voltage cable networks are a better option than overhead lines, contact ElecComm.

Fiber Optics Telecommunication Networks for Safe and Effective Transmission of Information - Providence, RI

Joseph Coupal - Saturday, July 12, 2014

Telecommunication networks in Providence RI must be configured, designed, installed, and managed on a holistic basis as they can make or break the transmission and exchange of data over distant locations. They provide a convenient communication platform for multiple users that is why they must be organized into some form of a network.

A telecommunication network is an electronic system of nodes that facilitate effective communication and other related operations. In year past, it was impractical to use this kind of network to send and receive information be it in the form of telephone call, text, image, or video because most of the links oftentimes are left idle. However, with the help of modern technology and experts from ElecComm, this and other issues have been resolved and avoided.

We want to make sure that you use a cost-effective and energy-efficient telecommunication network to satisfy the specific requirements demanded by your exclusive operations and transactions. This has been made possible by a network that are interconnected and installed such that every user is has an access to one of the communication channels. We use high quality fiber optic cables in any comprehensive cable network we engineer and implement to ensure safe and effective transmission of important information.

Contact ElecComm for concerns regarding fiber splicing, network testing, and other related services.

Fiber Optic Splice Experts for Hire in New England

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, May 08, 2014

Splicing fiber optic cable is a significant skill when connecting them in a variety of configurations. So what are the things to consider when hiring fiber optic experts. Basically, their job is to install, repair, and maintain fiber optic wires and cables.

Tools and techniques

Fiber optic experts must be trained in using fiber optic splicing tools such as adapters, attenuators, connectors, couplers and splitters. Experts also use modern techniques to carefully cut, connect, and test the wires.

Splicing and installation

Fiber optic splicing must be done in such a way that the quality of the signal will be preserved and network reliability will be improved. Thus fiber optic splicers must be experts in alignment to ensure high-speed communications.

Accurate and appropriate

Experts use fiber optic splicing tools to measure electric lines accurately and arrange cable colors appropriately. They must also be able to provide correct equipment location, splicing records and other needed information in the fiber optic database.

Diagnose and repair

Fiber optics are used in electronics and communication. Networks are usually complex and often it is hard to figure which specific part is malfunctioning. This is why fiber optic technicians must be experienced in monitoring and diagnosing cable and wire problems, and stay updated on new ways to fix them. They must be available anytime for emergency coverage for fiber restoration.

Residential or Commercial

Splicing fiber optic cable works for both residential and commercial purposes. So technicians must be well-versed in splicing and installing fiber optics inside, outdoor, and underground.

For communications line construction and other related services, contact ElecComm.

It is Safer Than Ever to Hire Electric Power Line Construction Contractors - Boston

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, April 23, 2014

OSHA issued a final rule that revises a 42-year-old construction standard for electric power line work to make it more consistent with general industry standards.

The final rule also revises general industry and construction standards for electrical protective equipment.

The updated standards for general industry and construction include new or revised provisions for host and contract employers to share safety-related information with each other and with employees, as well as for improved fall protection for employees working from aerial lifts and on overhead line structures. In addition, the standards adopt revised approach-distance requirements to better ensure that unprotected workers do not get dangerously close to energized lines and equipment. The final rule also adds new requirements to protect workers from electric arcs.

The new standard for electrical protective equipment applies to all electrical construction work and replaces the existing construction standard, which was based on out-of-date information, with a set of performance-oriented requirements consistent with the latest revisions of the relevant consensus standards. The new standards address the safe use and care of electrical protective equipment, including new requirements that equipment made of materials other than rubber provide adequate protection from electrical hazards.

“This long-overdue update will save nearly 20 lives and prevent 118 serious injuries annually,” said Dr. David Michaels, assistant secretary of labor for occupational safety and health. “Electric utilities, electrical contractors and labor organizations have persistently championed these much-needed measures to better protect the men and women who work on or near electrical power lines.”

Golfers Choose Courses and Ranges with Well Maintained Golf Course Netting - Boston

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, April 16, 2014

Do you plan to expand or improve the facilities at your golf driving range? Now that spring is here, it may be time to upgrade the facility. Planned improvements will make the driving range more of a top-of-mind facility when the season starts each year.

Most golf courses and driving ranges share a boundary with something. Golf course netting protects your neighbors and protects you from liability.

Expansion and improvement of your golf range will improve customer demand during early spring, late fall and winter. When the range is in good repair, it is the range that gets chosen first. If your range offers amenities or facilities for events, this is an even bigger reason to ensure that golf course netting is in good repair.

This season, your golf course and driving range scheduled improvements should include replacing the netting around the driving range.

Many public-access golf courses closed last year nationwide. Mainly this is caused by loss of revenue. When a golf course or range is well maintained, attractive and convenient, sales increase, increasing revenue.

For more information on golf course netting and poles, contact ElecComm.

Custom Golf Course Poles and Netting - Boston, Hartford

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, March 26, 2014

The tough winter has many golf courses and driving ranges around the Boston area left with work to do on their property; golf course netting in disrepair, poles and lights that need to be replaced or added. For the protection of the course, the patrons, neighbors and by-standers, golf courses and driving ranges need golf course netting that is safe and secure.

ElecComm provides installation of poles and netting for driving ranges and golf courses along with replacement netting and free estimates. All netting is done with Redden Nets. Now is the time to get course and ranges set up and squared away before the golf season really begins.

All golf courses are different with different needs. The golf course safety netting and poles need to be custom designed and sized for each individual location. ElecComm installs golf course netting and you can count on it to be designed and custom fitted to meet your needs.

For information on netting installation, contact ElecComm.

Wind and Solar Power Need Transmission Lines – Boston, Providence

Joseph Coupal - Friday, February 28, 2014

With the increased interest in renewable energy like solar power and wind farms, states like Massachusetts and Rhode Island have been building solar fields and discussing wind power. In fact, many, if not all New England States, offer incentives to companies and businesses who choose to invest in solar and wind energy.

Massachusetts has become one of the leaders in renewable energy. Solar power, however, has surpassed and outpaced wind energy in recent years. Renewable energy capacity is growing by 25% per year, and solar is growing even faster.

Electric power transmission is the process where large amounts of electricity produced at power plants like industrial-scale solar facilities, is transported over long distances for eventual use by consumers.

Wind turbines and solar panels are not all that is needed for renewable energy transmission. If there are no existing suitable transmission facilities available for newly constructed solar energy power plants and wind farms new transmission lines and associated infrastructure is required. Turbines and solar panels are what the public sees, but transmission lines, transmission towers, and substations  to bring the power generated to the energy grid are necessary as well.

Engineering and project management are also a massive part of this endeavor. For more information on power infrastructure construction, contact ElecComm.

Are you in the renewable energy industry? To ensure that the project is successfully connected to the grid, contact ElecComm.
