Simple, Accurate Wire Length Counters
High accuracy in cable length measurement meters is critical to understanding your costs and ensuring customer satisfaction with your product.
Taymer’s cable length measurement meter solutions include cut to length systems for heavy cable as well as small gauge wire length measurement. Taymer also provides respooling equipment for automated cable length measurement payoff and takeup of cut to length cable measurement.
The Length Rite series are wire and cable length counters that meters accurate length measurement counter results from small diameter wires at low production speeds to large diameter cables at high production speeds. The Length Rite series has been designed for improved wire length measurement accuracy and easy wire length measurement automation.
The Length Rite 600 (left) is a cable length meter that meets the continuous cable length measuring requirements of wire manufacturers and wire harness manufacturers requiring high accuracy cable meter length measurement. Our cable length measurement device includes a dedicated length and speed display. Designed for high speed, continuous process length measurement, the LR600 is ideal for the production environment.
The LR600-PPM (right) is the motorized version of the LR600. Its heavy duty design will ensure that your product is pulled consistently through the measuring pulleys for optimal measurement accuracy.
The Length Rite 300 is a wire length counter that meters accurate, digital wire length measurement counter results for small diameter wires at low production speeds. The LR300 can be used manually or on a production line. The LR300 has been designed for improved wire length measurement accuracy and easy wire length measurement automation. Please call us for more details. Typically ships in 1-3 weeks.
The Length Rite 1200 is a cable length counter capable of accurate length measuring of 1/4″ (6mm) diameter wire up to 5″ (125mm) diameter. For pipe length measurement and tube manufacturing, length measuring device designs handling up to 10″ (250mm) are available. Taymer’s robust cable length meter construction is well suited to both wire & cable length measuring and pipe & tube length measuring requirements. Click the link above to get full details.
Cable length measurement technology
Taymer’s highly accurate belt contact cable length measurement devices and meters for wire and cable have many features to enhance productivity and accuracy in your plant. Designed for high speed, continuous process cable length measurement, our device is ideal for the production environment.
Length Measurement Accuracy
Taymer’s Length Rite product series has a cable length measurement accuracy of up to +/- 0.05% (LR100 excepted). Our 30 years of experience in wire length measuring devices enabled us to develop mechanical and electronic technology to deliver this industry leading length measuring accuracy.
Pneumatic Raise and Lower
The Length Rite utilizes a pneumatic system to raise and lower the upper assembly. This feature ensures that exactly the same pressure is applied to your product at all times, practically eliminating slippage and protecting your product from excess pressure.
In rewind lines and in certain manufacturing lines, pipe and cable length measuring has to include flexibility to subtract movement in the opposite direction to determine an accurate length measurement. Taymer’s Cable Length Measurement technology is well suited for this requirement and back and forth movement does not impact the machines’ overall length measurement accuracy of up to +/- 0.05%.
The Length Rite is able to integrate to a computer to store data into a database. This feature is ideal for tracking length measurements and make use of the data – such as inventory control, product details, and line efficiency.
How it works
- The Length Rite device is based on measuring wheels that will rotate when making contact with the wire/cable/rope etc.
- This rotation is converted into a read-out of the measured length.
- On most models, an encoder is used for this conversion to provide an accuracy of +/- 0.05%.
- A typical problem with accurate measurement is slippage between the measuring wheels and the cable.
- To ensure minimal slippage, the Length Rite system uses two belt and pulleys to sandwich the cable as it pass along.
- This method maximizes surface contact and provides a highly accurate reading.
- This setup also allows the Length Rite to measure accurately on cables moving at speeds up to 1000 feet / min.
