NDC Technologies, a leading global provider of precision measurement and process control solutions, indicates its Beta LaserMike CenterScan 2010 gauge accurately and consistently monitors the diameter of insulated wire and cable, and eccentricity of conductors within the insulation, during extrusion and insulation processes. Manufacturers are realizing a number of benefits such as improved product quality, reduced material consumption and increased profits.

When the core of insulated wire and cable moves off center, product quality suffers. If left unchecked, this out-of-tolerance wire or cable eccentricity can leave manufacturers with reels of unusable product. The CenterScan 2010 gauge solves this problem by using highly sensitive magnetic and optical technology to precisely determine the location of the conductor within the insulation. This non-contact measurement system performs eccentricity, diameter, wall thickness and flaw detection measurements in one gauge head.

Benefits include:

-   Easy integration into production environments with built-in flexible communications
Superior noise immunity for closer placement to line devices
Compact design for installation flexibility on production line
Simple access, viewing and configuration of gauge functions via optional ultra-bright display

CenterScan 2010 reliably measures diameters from 0.1 to 10 mm (0.004 to .40 in) and determines eccentricity and diameter with ±0.0005 mm (±0.000020 in) accuracy. Typical applications include LAN, RF, coaxial, mini coaxial, telephone, automotive and installation wire and cable, to name a few.
