The paper presents technical implementation of the electricalcapacitive method to perform in-process measurement of the capacitance per unit length of a single-core electric wire. The design of the electrocapacitive measuring transducer is proposed. The block diagram of the device CAP-10 developed to implement the proposed method is presented. The appearance of the device CAP-10 is showed, and its operating principle is described. It is shown that the change in water conductivity has a significant impact of the measurement result of the wire capacitance per unit length. The techniques to offset from the impact of water conductivity variation on measurement results are proposed. The technique of the device CAP-10 initial adjustment is proposed. It provides the desired function of the output signal transformation. The technique of the ‘operating’ adjustment to correct measurement results through systematic measurement error elimination is offered.
