  This article describes the current fast wire-scanner devices installed in circular accelerators at CERN with an emphasis of the error studies carried out during the last two runs. At present the wire-scanners have similar acquisition systems but are varied in terms of mechanics. Several measurement campaigns were performed aimed at establishing optimal operational settings and to identify and assess systematic errors. In several cases the results led to direct performance improvements while in others this helped in defining the requirements for new detectors.
