Twist Length Detector TLD

Device for measuring the twist length of sheathed cables


Device details: ■ Measurements according to the standards LV212 und LV122 ■ The twist length of the samples is measured without removing the sheath → this ensures a precise measurement ■ Traditional methods manipulate the sample (cable stripping / unwinding of conductors) → a precise measurement is not possible anymore ■ Via an optional PC connection, the measuring results can directly be exported ■ Fully automatic: By clicking one button, the measuring sensor automatically moves along the sample Results: ■ Result file: It is possible saving the following result data into a text file (export function): ▪ Amount of twists ▪ Measured distance (distance from the first twist to the last overlapping twist) ▪ Driving distance oft he sensor ▪ Minimum / Maximum twist length ▪ Average of the detected twist lengths Calibration: ■ The calibration is performed with an especially designed master-sample (calibration piece)
