The Nova 1500 Twist Fabricator makes twisted specimen pairs according to NEMA-1000, JIS and IEC specifications. The Dielectric Twist Fabricator consistently provides the exact number of twists and tensions on twisted pair samples for dielectric strength, voltage endurance, and thermal aging testing. The tester has a
twist paddle that accommodates wire sizes from 44 AWG to 12 AWG (0.05 mm – 2.0 mm). The motor rotates the twist paddle at a speed of up to 100 revolutions (twists) per minute. A pre-settable counter shows the number of twists selected and automatically stops the motor when the correct numbers of twist have been performed. An optional chuck is available for helical coil winding.
