The MT 200 compact inspection station offered by Laselec uses a Class 1 UV laser to mark cable samples, then produces an analysis report. Manufacturers can test, control and optimize the UV laser markability of their wires and cables during production. The system includes proprietary real-time Comet image capture software to measure the contrast of UV laser-generated marks on electrical wiring and fiber optic cables. The laser is a 355-nm frequency-tripled Nd:YAG solid-state model with a pulse duration of 7 to 9 ns. The marking zone is covered by a front panel and window to allow visualization of the laser shots and to protect against laser radiation. Marking can be performed through single shot or programmable laser shots at defined intervals. The system includes a numerical camera with zoom, autocalibration and real-time energy level control.
