SIEBE Automatic color measurement in the cable industry

At the ‚wire & tube’ exhibition in Duesseldorf (Germany), Siebe presents a dual color checking device for wires. Application is inline control of color during production or color quality test for harnessing or laboratory control. The device can detect single color coded insulation as well as stripe coded wires and shows both colors.
Reference color can be taken from a RAL database or a user defined database, where new entries are created with a teach-in function. Result is either nearest database color or color difference to selected reference (in units of Lab-dE). Minimum wire diameter is 1mm (40 mil), minimum stripe width is 0.5mm (20 mil).
Two device types are available : Inline with TCP-IP connection to line PLC or stand alone with touch screen. The offline device comes with touch screen and turn mechanism for 360° inspection.
