Dayton, OH, United States, 2011/03/25 - LayScan® system accurately and consistently measures the lay lengths of twisted pairs for high-performance category cables - BetaLaserMike.com.
Beta LaserMike, a leading global provider of precision measurement and control solutions, will be debuting its new LayScan measurement system at the Interwire 2011 Trade Exposition, May 3 - 5 in booth #732 at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta, Georgia.
Beta LaserMike’s LayScan system (patent pending) accurately and consistently measures the lay length of twisted pairs used in telecommunication cables. The system uses optical, non-contact measurement technology to perform on-line, high-speed lay length measurements with the highest precision to within 1 mil. Providing high-data rate capabilities, LayScan precisely determines the variations in lay length within each lay. Systematic lay variations that are typically caused by twinning and cabling operations can be readily observed and measured. A data acquisition system effectively collects and processes the lay length data, and reports the measurement results.
Beta LaserMike’s LayScan measurement system delivers many benefits to cable manufacturers:
• Improves product performance by better controlling lay lengths and delivering a higher level of cross-talk performance;
• Minimizes product cost and scrap by optimizing the lay set and provides the ability to consistently control lay lengths over time;
• Reduces the product development cycle through precise measurements of lay length values during design trials and experiments;
• Allows standardized pair lays across various twinning systems and reduces the need to limit production scheduling to qualified equipment.
