Excess Fiber Length Measurement System

Excess Fiber Length Measurement System
For Loose Tube Fiber and Ribbon Cable Manufacturing

The ability to precisely monitor excess fiber length is important in loose tube and fiber ribbon cable, and is essential to the cable’s optical and mechanical performance. Beta LaserMike’s Excess Fiber Length (EFL) Measurement System offers you an easy-to-use solution for applications requiring the on-line measurement of Excess Fiber Length in loose tube and fiber ribbon cable manufacturing. The heart of the system is Beta LaserMike’s LaserSpeed® non-contact length and speed gauges and the proprietary EFLTrack™ software. By adding the EFL Measurement System to your application, you can quickly ensure that the fiber-to-jacket ratio of your product is within desired specifications. As a result, you’ll increase productivity, improve product quality, and realize bottom-line cost savings.

  • Monitor Excess Fiber Length ratio in real time and realize significant cost savings

    Quickly and easily measure fiber length and calculate EFL ratio without the time-consuming and costly tasks of cutting cable and exposing, cleaning cable fibers to measure product. Compare fiber bundle-to-jacket ratio with 0.01% (0.1 per mil) resolution.
