NEW Grounds-Trainer Personal Protective Grounding Simulator
Utility Solutions, Inc has introduced a new grounding simulator specifically designed for utilities and lineworkers. USI has developed a new desktop trainer called the Grounds-Trainer Personal Protective Grounding Simulator that combines hands-on jumper connections with a powerful computer simulation. Personal protective grounding is a highly complex and often misunderstood subject. Textbooks have difficulty illustrating the effects of a fault on a distribution system. The Grounds-Trainer simulates an overhead distribution system with several variables. Lineworkers can learn the principles of grounding, proper work methods, and simulate the effects of a fault at a work site.
A mainstay with utilities for 20 years, Lindsey’s line of sensors provide exceptionally reliable and highly accurate voltage and current monitoring for substation, overhead, padmount, and submersible underground distribution applications. At 0.5% accuracy, Lindsey is the most accurate sensor on the market. This accuracy gives utilities even better visibility into grid operations and the ability to maximize the benefits from their VVO/CVR investments. Lindsey is an American manufacture located in California for over 80 years.

This versatile, non-conductive product can be used to meet all your substation needs (grounding, noise reduction, aesthetics and ballistic security). Another huge advantage to Safe Fence is that it is manufactured in the U.S.A. – in Newberry, South Carolina.

This is an information update to let you know what we at USI are doing to support you and provide needed products and information during this unprecedented time.
As new information is coming out daily and requirements are being updated, we want you to know that we are continuing to work and communicate with our factories on your behalf. We are continuing to stay in touch with you in various ways but in response to the request for not having face to face contact any more than necessary, we have curtailed personal visits for the time being.
Our staff has the ability to work from home and most are doing so now. We have our phones forwarded as needed and our emails connected as well. We operate mostly through “the cloud” so most of that has not been affected and we are able to continue with our tasks almost seamlessly.
We are staying up to date with our factories to know what they are doing and how this is affecting them. We have had very few supply chain issues and are confident that we will be able to continue to supply your needs in the normal fashion. If we see this changing, we promise to alert you as quickly as possible. As lead times are already extended, we encourage you to continue to monitor your needs by forecasting and ordering in a timely manner.
My main message is that we are open for business and are striving to keep the products and information you need coming your way. We will constantly monitor the changing situation and adjust as required to do the best job that we can for you. If you see something that we can do better, we are happy for new ideas.
As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please let me know. We appreciate you and your help during this situation and know that we will all come through it by working together.
Sincerely & God Bless us all,
Utility Specialists, Inc.

The Board of Utility Supply Management Association had a conference call this afternoon and after deliberation determined that the conference in Nashville, scheduled for May, will be cancelled.
We expect the organization’s website will give more details as soon as possible.
As a measure of caution due to the Corona Virus and since many utilities are curtailing travel, the Southeastern Meter School & Conference previously scheduled for next week has been postponed until August 17 – 20 in Auburn, Ala. Please let us know in the meantime if you have any metering related needs that USI can assist. Our manufacturers are looking forward to supporting the school this summer! Thank you for your understanding. USI – (800) 733-4837
