Cable length measuring devices
Cable length measuring devices are used in production or construction for the Cable length measurementThe devices are available in the variants with mechanical counter or rotary encoder. The devices are available with mechanical counter or rotary encoder. The version with a mechanical counter enables mains-independent operation, but the version with a rotary encoder offers higher accuracy.
Structure cable length measuring device
The units consist of a stable frame through which the cable is guided. In the lower part of the frame there is a guide roller on which the cable rests. Above the measuring roller is a measuring wheel which rests on the cable. At the side or above the frame there is a mechanical counter or Rotary encoder which is connected to the measuring wheel.
Functional principle cable length measuring device
To insert the cable, a part of the frame is folded upwards. The cable is inserted into the unit and the frame is closed again. The cable is now clamped between the guide roller and the measuring wheel. As soon as the cable is pulled through the machine, the measuring wheel turns. The revolutions of the measuring wheel are thus transmitted to the counter or encoder. If a rotary encoder is installed on the machine, the measured values can be transmitted directly to a counter. Process controller or a machine control system.
