By Renée Francoeur
August 18, 2015 – Hastings, a manufacturer of hot line tools and equipment, has unveiled a new camera-mounting hot stick.
Modeled after the Hastings Tel-O-Pole series, this hot stick allows for a GoPro action camera to be mounted and utilized for inspection of and around energized lines, transformers, insulators, poles, buildings, bridges, etc.
Utility workers can use the camera to wirelessly stream and record live picture and video to the ground with any iPhone, tablet, or android device compatible with the GoPro Application. The hot stick may even allow inspections to be completed without the use of a bucket truck, lift, or climbing gear, Hastings said.
