Utility Aerial ServiceUtility line pulling, overhead construction, wind farm maintenance, public works repair, and aerial refurbishment work demand clear and reliable communications for the entire team. With decades of experience working with utility crews, Setcom has rugged communications systems designed for all of the environments and applications that a crew in a bucket truck will encounter.
This type of aerial work can be dangerous and must be done in a safe manner particularly when working around energized lines and having moving traffic close to the aerial lift, ladder, or cherry picker that is being used to assist in the job. OSHA has long stipulated rules to insure proper communication including its Regulation 1926.1408(b)(4)(ii)(C) for Power Line Safety which states: "Where necessary, use equipment that enables the dedicated spotter to communicate directly with the operator." Setcom has the communications gear to make your teams safe on their work sites.
Why Use a Setcom Wireless System?
- No FCC license required. Unlike using a conventional two-way radio / walkie-talkie, Setcom's systems operate in a license-free frequency band and do not require applying for and maintaining an FCC license which saves you money, time, and the hassle of renewing a license.
- Hands-Free. No Push-to-Talk (PTT) Required. With Setcom wireless systems, just start talking and your crew members will hear you. Setcom's open microphone mode in combination with superior noise cancellation technology allows for hands-free communication without the burden of pressing a button to communicate. This increases safety and allows you to keep your hands where they should be like on your tools or bucket controls.
- Full Duplex Communications. Have a normal human conversation without the stilted and difficult nature of a half-duplex, two-way radio discussion that often ends up requiring one crew member to repeat himself a second time and be distracted by a less than ideal communication style.
