Pole Heights in RUS

143 Views, 1 Replies

Is there a way to control the default pole heights in the RUS template?

My company sets poles at 1/10 height + 2' deep. When I place poles in AUD, it is setting pole heights based on some other rule or calculation (minimum clearance for line sag, or something)

I have not been able to find a way to override this. Is there a setting I am overlooking? Or is there a way to create a rule to set pole heights?

Hello Tim,

if you look at Poles in Industry Model you will see two fields for each Pole labeled "Length" and "Max height Above Ground", this is where the

utility can set the depth the pole is buried. For Example the utility I work at buries a 40' class 4 pole in the ground 6', so Length would be 40' and Max height Above Ground would be 34' that way AUD knows that that Pole can only be used up to 34 feet.
