Excentricity measuring system

ODEX

Advantages

  • Very fast:
  •    4 x 1200 magnetic readings per second
  •   2 x 1200 optical readings per second
  •   1200 synchronized concentricity values per second
  • For outside diameters as small as 0.08 mm (.003 in.)
  • No recalibration
  • As easy to operate as a diameter gauge
  • Extremely compact – only 110 mm wide (4.3 in.)
  • Flexible – works on ferrous and non-ferrous conductors
  • True minimum wall measurement
  • Easy installation
  • Advanced digital signal processing (DSP)
  • Robust and insensitive to dirt
  •   Superior immunity to dirt, like ZUMBACH® laser gauges
  •   No servo mechanisms needed
  • RS and PROFIBUS DP versions

 

The ODEX® measures eccentricity, diameter and ovality within a few microns (1µ = 0.001 mm [.00004 in.]). In applications of modern data cables CAT 5…8 and many other cable products, this often decides if the product passes or fails Quality Control Requirements. Because of the outstanding linearity, the ODEX® can be mounted stationary in most applications and without the need of a servo or mechanical tracking system to keep the product centered.

Integrated analog outputs, serial ports, and a modern bus system, PROFIBUS DP, allow for any imaginable configuration.
