Introduction

The Proton Products NEXiS® CS2G-CAP controller is for use on wire insulation extrusion lines.

NEXiS® CS2G-CAP controllers connect to Proton Products InteliSENS®Capacitance Gauges and Speed and Length Gauges for measurement of insulation capacitance and line speed respectively. These measurements are then fed into a PI feedback controller whose fully-isolated and floating output may be used to drive insulation extruders or capstan drives.

Insulation capacitance is thus actively controlled and kept in tolerance by the NEXiS® CS2G-CAP controller.
