Wire and Cable

Outline

Speed & Length Measurement

Non-contact measurement of wire or cable speed and length.

  • Production line speed measurement and control.
  • Product length measurement.
  • Control of cutters and inkjet printers.
  • Quality inspection rewind lines for flaw position logging.
  • Non-contact, slip-free and low maintenance replacement for contact wheel / roller systems.

Diameter Measurement

Non-contact measurement of wire or cable diameters in 1, 2 or 3-axes.

  • Diameter measurement and control for insulation extrusion lines.
  • Detection of wire and insulation diameter errors.
  • Multiple gauges may be used together to measure wall thickness especially in multilayered insulation applications.

Capacitance Measurement

Measurement of cable insulation capacitance during immersion in a water cooling trough.

  • Manufacture of capacitance critical cables such as CAT5/6 wire or coaxial cable for telecommunications and RF.
