Module F - Slide 9


In general the APS devices are designed to be mounted on metal poles with wires coming in the back of the devices from the pole. When installed on wooden utility poles, modifications may be needed. These photos show how some cities have dealt with the issue of installing APS on wooden poles. IN the photo on the left, the wiring is run down the back of the pole in a conduit and a hole is drilled through the pole to the device. In the photo on right, a hole has been drilled into the bottom casing of the APS and a metal fitting added for the wire. If modifications are made, it’s important to weather-proof the devices (i.e., neoprene grommets) if you drill into the device and be aware that drilling through the casing might void the warranty.
