Capacitance measuring devices with single and multizone electrode* for very high frequency and length resolution as well as bare spot detection

The demand of many customers for more reliability and profitability at their production lines is also taken up in SIKORA’s latest capacitance measuring devices for diverse product diameters. Especially telephone wires, coaxial cables, data cables, LAN cables (Cat. 5, 6, 7, 8) and RF-cables require a reliable measurement of the capacity with high resolution. CAPACITANCE 2000 meets these challenges. This is achieved by the simple, but fascinating idea to split the cable into 2 active zones: One extremely short and one longer measuring zone. The capacitance values of each zone are processed by a dual-channel receiver directly by the electronic of the capacitance tube. The devices fulfill all requirements for an online prediction of the Structural Return Loss (SRL) during the cable production. These predictions are based on a FFT-analysis of the cable parameters.

Other products and services from Sikora


SIKORA - Products - CENTRIX 8000

The high-tech measuring system has been developed not only for reliably measuring the diameter of marketable types of hoses and tubes, but it is also the first diameter gauge head which measures the eccentricity of transparent products with incomparable precision. The measuring head is very small by means of applying the most modern SMD-technology and it can be easily integrated into every extrusion line.


SIKORA - Products - CSS 2

The Cleanliness Scanning System CSS 2 is a tool for customers to create a super clean concept by an on-line supervision of the total XLPE material for purity in the flow channel directly before the crosshead. Many measures have been taken, especially in the production of high voltage and extra high voltage cables, to reduce contamination of the cable insulation.


SIKORA - Products - CENTERVIEW 8000

The CENTERVIEW 8000 is available as a stand-alone gauge head for the direct connection to a control system or a data collection system for SPC, but as well in combination with the processor system ECOCONTROL for a permanent accurate online measurement and control.
