August 18, 2017 — Battle Ground, WA — Delta Computer Systems, Inc. announces that it will be exhibiting it's SNT-02 safety monitoring instrument and kit at the October 2-5, 2017 ICUEE and related Incident Prevention Conference & Exhibits in Louisville, KY. The SNT will be in HJ Arnett's Booth 3807.

2017 ICUEE

The SNT-02 Step and Touch Instrument continuously monitors and alarms for dangerous voltage, which is an improvement over previous methods of checking voltage at the beginning of the shift. Induced voltages can change during the work interval as external conditions change, due to increased loading on adjacent lines, soil drying out leading to increased resistance of safety ground systems, or other dynamic conditions.

An innovation by Bonneville Power Administration engineers, the SNT Instrument has been helping ensure the safety of BPA line crews since 2003.

This instrument addresses the safety issue of Step-and-Touch Potential caused by ground potential rise. De-energized lines connected to a tower or safety ground act as large antennas and can create dangerous conditions if the earth ground is faulty or insufficient. As power transmission line corridors become ever more crowded, It has become ever more critical to warn line crews when grounded lines are picking up dangerous voltages via inductive coupling. (Step potential is when a voltage difference or gradient occurs between a person's feet. Touch potential is when a person comes into contact with an energized object).

"The need for this capability becomes more important as more power corridors have increased in complexity — often driven by growth in green energy", stated Steve Nylund, CEO of Delta Computer Systems. "The BPA, contractors, and investor-owned utility customers have found the SNT to be valuable and Delta is pleased to demonstrate this product at the ICUEE to highlight the importance of job site safety." Nylund added.
