Thanks to the Smart_Wire_Measurement insulation tool it is possible to determine the number of strands in a wire automatically, as well as manually select the appropriate figure.
The Wire Insulation Measurement function calculates the absolute minimum distance between the outer “blob” of the insulation profile and the inner “blob” of the insulation profile. Once this minimum distance is determined, the system breaks the diameter of the insulation into six 60 degrees segments, based on the minimum distance at 0 degrees. The minimum distance between the inner and outer “blobs” is determined from within each of these 60 degrees segments. This mechanism is used when there is a single strand on the inside lobe (like in a simple gasket), or there are 6 or more lobes or wire strands.
