PROTON Products InteliSENS® DG-k SERIES Super-Fast, High-Speed Diameter Gauge PROTON Products, the leading global provider of precision measurement and control products for the wire and cable industries, announces its Super-Fast, high-speed InteliSENS DG-k Series diameter gauge. This instrument delivers exceptionally fast measurement performance with scan rates of up to 10,000 scans/second/axis for outstanding product quality supervision. The solid-state DG-k Series Diameter Gauge provides dual and triple axis- diameter measurement capability for accurate, trouble-free, long-term reliability. PROTON’s InteliSENS DG-k instrument uses eye- safe LED light sources combined with high-speed Digital Signal Processing (DSP) and a proprietary optical bench for diameter measurement, control, inspection and alarming during on-line production. LED light sources cover the entire circumference of the product for total product quality measurement, inspection and reporting. Integrated air wipes ensure the optical path is kept clean for continuous, accurate measurement. All of PROTON Products instruments are supplied with intelligent, easy-to-integrate capabilities as standard that feature a broad range of embedded process interfaces. This includes Ethernet, RS-232 and WiFi communications with optional PROFIBUS, PROFINET, DeviceNet, Industrial Protocol IP that can be substituted for the Ethernet communications interface. InteliSENS DG-k options include an integrated PI feedback controller for insulation line extruders and capstan drives. An optional integrated lump and neck flaw detection capability is available for single measurement flaw detection (SMFD). A Fast Fourier transform (FFT) analysis option helps pinpoint the source of process disturbances for greater productivity and reduced scrap. Finally, a Statistical Process (SPC) reporting option helps monitor and control the process to ensure that it operates at its full potential with optimum product uniformity and conformation. . http://www.protonproducts.com WIRE NEWS November 2017 7
