IKE 3 Spec Sheet – English

The complete, customizable, and verifiable
field data collection solution
The All-in-One Solution
The IKE solution includes the
following components:
Device - This MIL-STD-810F rugged field data
collection device has the ability to capture calibrated
digital images along with GPS coordinates, span
lengths, and span angles. The combination of a digital
camera, sub-meter GPS, laser range-finder and
proprietary software within a single tool, allows for the
capture of field-data efficiently and accurately.
Tools Software - Tools is the customizable workflows
and forms that are created within the Desktop
Software, then uploaded into the IKE device. There
are currently eight various field data capturing tools.
The type of measurement needed, in addition to the
conditions/location of the object being measured,
determine which Tool will be used. Information within
each Tool segment varies but can include: GPS,
distance to target, bearing, line height and span length.
The ability to document attributes or make comments
is also offered within the Tool settings.
Integration - IKE data in the original report format
is a valuable resource, but the data has a broader
impact across an organization when the information
is integrated with back-end systems including
engineering, GIS and asset management software.
The data can be generated in a number of industry
standard formats which makes this possible.
Accessories - IKE is a complete solution. Each
unit ships with a hard-shell case and a variety of
accessories to support field use. Accessories include:
stabilizing tripod, glare shield, vehicle charger, extra
batteries, screen protector and more.
Desktop Software - This proprietary software performs
a number of functions including creating and editing
custom data collection forms for the IKE device. It also
provides measurement calculations for attachments
and spans on the TrueSize images captured in the
field and has the ability to generate reports in a variety
of standard formats.

IKE 3 Tools Software
IKE Tools is a Windows Mobile software installed on the device for capturing specific
data points you require. The following Tools represent core IKE functionality.
Capture a calibrated (TrueSize) photo of a utility or
telecommunications pole with one shot, then transfer to IKE
Desktop software for measuring the heights of the pole and it's
Target Position
The workhorse of IKE data capture. Point IKE at a remote object
such as a tree, pole or building and capture its GPS location
using the on board GPS, laser range finder and compass. One
shot and you’re on to the next object.
Missing Line
Calculate the horizontal distance as well as the bearing between
any two objects
Span Height
Calculate the vertical height above ground of a point on a span,
for example the mid-span height of a cable or wire.

Photo Only
Capture a high resolution photo of an object. Useful for
documenting the conditions of located or measured objects,
for identifying hazards for field crews and for including in
Local Point
Captures the GPS location of the device, not the remote object.
It eliminates the error introduced from the laser and compass,
therefore it’s more accurate than target position.
IKE 3 Integration
IKE’s accurate and verifiable field data is the end-result for using the IKE solution.
However, the ability to utilize this data within the context of your business model
provides the ultimate benefit. IKE offers a variety of formats to easily integrate this data
into backend systems including; engineering, GIS and pole-loading analysis software.
Current integration partners include:
ee PLS-Pole (by Power Line Systems)
ee SPIDACalc (by SPIDA Software)
ee O-Calc Pro (by Osmose)
Development of integration is an ongoing process and we will be expanding our
integration capabilities with future partners.
IKE 3 Warranty
The IKE device comes with 1-year hardware warranty and software upgrade. You
can purchase an additional 1 or 2-year warranty with maintenance extensions.
