DOGBONE® Vibration Damper
The DOGBONE Vibration Damper is designed to eliminate conductor fatigue damage and line maintenance costs by effectively diminishing aeolian vibration. The messenger cable and unique "dog bone" shape of the masses are designed to achieve optimal energy dissipation for minimal clamp movement.
- Due to the many parameters involved and the exhaustive tests conducted, please contact PLP to calculate optimum damper placements and quantities.
- The messenger cable – The 19 strand messenger cable provides greater energy dissipation at small amplitudes of flexure.
- The damper attachment clamp – It provides adequate slip strength without imposing excessive clamping pressure on the conductor.
- Capable of being installed by hand or using live line installation techniques without the need to disassemble the clamp.
