CAPACITANCE 2000

CAPACITANCE 2000

 The capacity measuring device CAPACITANCE 2000 is installed in the cooling trough and measures online precisely the capacitance of the wire insulation and reliably detects bare patches. Furthermore, the system recognizes periodical capacitance changes and determines the Structural Return Loss (SRL).

 The assurance of highest quality is realized via the combination of a short and long measuring electrode (multi-zone technology), which is integrated into the measuring tube. The short measuring electrode of 10 mm length identifies periodical capacitance variations with high spatial resolution by means of Fast Fourier Transformation (FFT). From the FFT data, the SRL is determined and gives information about the expected attenuation of the RF signal during data transmission. The long measuring zone measures with high precision the average value of the capacitance.

CENTERVIEW 8000

CENTERVIEW 8000

The CENTERVIEW 8000 offers a non-contact and continuous online measurement of LAN or coaxial cables as well as automotive and installation cables, due to the unique 8-point-eccentricity, 4-axes-diameter and 8-point-ovality measurement with highest measuring accuracy.

The CENTERVIEW 8000 is a non-contact gauge head, specifically designed for production lines of all round, single conductor wires, and cables with single or multi-wire conductors and solid or foamed insulations.

 The system measures online the eccentricity, wall thickness, diameter and the ovality of cables with high single value precision. The measuring values are taken from 4 axes (diameter) respectively at 8 points (eccentricity, ovality) and are visualized on the integrated display or at the processor systems of the ECOCONTROL Series. The operator receives immediately clear information about eccentricity values that can be instantly used for control or centering of the cross head. This assures maximum material savings.

SPARK 6000

SPARK 6000

 Bereits während der Extrusion von Kabeln, Adern und Leitungen wird die Isolation mittels Hochspannungsprüfgeräten überprüft und eventuelle Isolationsfehler rechtzeitig detektiert und dokumentiert. Zur Prüfung läuft das trockene Kabel durch die Kugelkettenelektrode des Sparktesters, wird dabei der gewählten Prüfspannung ausgesetzt und Fehler in der Isolation werden zuverlässig detektiert.

SIKORA bietet für verschiedene Anwendungen Gleichspannungs- (DC), Hochfrequenz- (HF) und Wechselspannungs-(AC) Sparktester an.

 Der SPARK 6030 HF ist ein Hochfrequenz-Hochspannungs-Spark-Tester, konzipiert für die zuverlässige Detektion von Fehlern in der Isolation. Dabei unterscheidet das System zuverlässig zwischen punktuellen Fehlern (pin holes) und Blankstellen (bare patches).

ULTRATEMP 6000

ULTRATEMP 6000

 The ULTRATEMP 6000 is an ultrasonic temperature measuring device for the reliable non-contact measurement of polyethylene melts in demanding and temperature sensitive extrusion processes. Furthermore, the system detects inhomogeneities in the melt.

Typical application of the ULTRATEMP 6000 is the measurement of the XLPE melt temperature for HV cables or the material temperature in hose and tube extrusion lines.

The ULTRATEMP 6000 is a temperature measuring device, which reliably measures the polyethylene melt in the flow channel between the extruder and the cross head. Therefore, it provides an essential parameter for the process. A too high temperature and, therefore, discoloration of the melt or scorches, can be countered as well as a too low temperature, which causes unmelted material.

The ULTRATEMP 6000 makes an important contribution for process optimization and cost reduction.
