Lay length measurement system for high-performance communication cables - LayScan

LayScan offers cable manufacturers an accurate and consistent method to measure the lay length of twisted pairs in data communication cables, such as Cat 5e/6/6a/7a products.  It solves scrap, costly rework and productivity loss problems due to manual, time-consuming lay length measurement methods and crosstalk performance issues from lay variations.

LayScan can be used to measure the four pairs at the cabler or to measure an individual pair at a twinner to confirm the accuracy of twisted-pair cable construction during production. A data acquisition and control system effectively collects and processes each lay length in the cable and allows the full use of the customer’s off-line analysis tools such as trend charts, statistical analysis or FFT analysis to readily observe, measure and report systematic lay variations within each lay.

LayScan measures lay lengths up to 25.4 mm at throughput speeds up to 152.4 m/min with a measurement accuracy to within 1 mil on the same twisted pair.
