Cable Height Meter

determines the height
of overhead lines
up to 23m

    Type Number 610 300


    Cable Height Meter 600E - utilises ultrasonic signals to determin the height of overhead lines up to 23 m (75 feet)


    The Suparule Cable Height Meter is a handheld meter for measurement of:

    • cable sag,
    • cable height distance and
    • overhead clearance of conductors.

    Used by line operators within the utilities industries, e.g., electricity and telecommunications.
    The CHM600E model measures up to 6 wires.

    In practical use, the Suparule Cable Height Meter convinces with extremely simple and intuitive handling!

    How it works

    The Cable Height Meter emits short bursts of sound which originate from the cone-shaped transmitter.

    The microprocessor in the instruments calculates the elapsed time for the bursts of sound to be reflected from the cable back to the instrument.

    The result can be displayed in either feet and inches (imperial), or meters (metric) format.

    To account for the fact that speed of sound varies with temperature, a temperature sensor, mounted at the front of the instruments, senses the actual air temperature, and automatically compensates.


    Applications include height measurement of:

    • Telephone lines
    • Distribution lines
    • Transmission lines
    • Cable television
    • Street lighting
    • SAG (lowest point to ground)
    • Clearances on construction sites

    The unit also provides a safer way to measure cable heights on highly congested roadways. Additionally the Cable Height Meters offer an easy way to check whether the device has remained in calibration since its purchase date.
    Switching to ‘CAL’ mode also allows the instruments to be used indoors.


    The Cable Height Meter is capable of measuring up to six cables (provided they are within range). This is accomplished by standing directly beneath the cable and aligning longitudinally (looking down the line). Simply press the “ON” button to power up the instrument, and allow the temperature to stabilize.Press the ‘MEASURE’ button and, if necessary, gently “rock and tilt” the instrument until a stable reading is obtained.
