OES Receives US Patent for their Conductor Touch Sensor

July 23, 2020

“CQS” (Conductor Quality Sensor) is the latest of a series of OES in-process monitoring and inspection products developed by OES to eliminate crimp defects on automated wire processing machines. OES’s unique technology approach provides reliable sensing of the stripping blade contact with the conductor during the insulation removal. Wire strip defects such as nicking, scraping, and tearing of the strands, resulting in crimp defects, can now be effectively controlled.
