Abstract(s)This paper presents Yarn System Quality (YSQ), an innovative, low-cost, portable and high-precision yarn evaluation tester, for quality control of yarn characteristics under laboratory conditions. It presents a modular architecture, simultaneously integrating measurements of yarn hairiness, mass, regularity and diameter. an external module to obtain the yarn production characteristics using analogue optics and image processing is also available. The quantification of yarn hairiness and diameter variation (with a sampling resolutions length of 1 mm) is carried out using photodiodes; the diameter characterization, based on 0.5 mm width samples, employs a linear photodiode array; the measurements of mass variation, based on samples of 1 mm, uses a parallel plate capacitive sensor. In the YSQ measurement parameters based on optical sensors a coherent signal processing technique with Fourier analysis is used, to obtain linera output signal variations. A comparison between the results obtained using the YSQ tester and a commercial solution is also presented.
