Fiber proof testers are created to use a set load to SZ Stranding Line in order to check the strength of the spliced fiber. Our fiber proof testers can be purchased in both linear and rotary designs, for both proof and tension testing. fiber evidence testers are available for solitary setting, multimode, and polarization-sustaining fibers. Pick from dedicated, standalone techniques or multipurpose designs that are also capable of stripping, cleaning, cleaving, splicing, and/or recoating.
fiber Recoaters with Proof Testers provide simple, integrated answers to recoat and test combination-spliced materials. The fiber recoating procedure restores the buffer coating to a removed fiber, providing much more flexibility than a heat-reduce protection sleeve, allowing that it is dealt with and coiled without damaging the combination-spliced area. The integrated linear or rotary evidence tester enables customers to immediately check a recoated fiber with a pre-decided weight and find out the long-phrase longevity of the fiber. Because of their capacity to restore a combination-spliced fiber to close to initial problem, these systems are ideal for programs like undersea optical fiber cables, submarine interaction cabling, fiber lasers, or Dispersed Bragg Reflector (DBR) lasers.
The procedure begins with the fusion-spliced part of fiber being placed in the center of the mold assembly (see picture to the right). Once set in place, inserts in the fiber obstructs secure the spliced fiber in position. Recoat material is pumped to the cavity and then Ultra violet-treated. The Sheathing Line can then be analyzed by pulling into it up to and including pre-decided load.
Recoater and Mold Set up Choices
Recoaters can be purchased with either an automatic or manual mold assembly. The automatic mold set up functions pneumatic control over the mold dishes and is enhanced for top-volume production programs. Handbook mold assemblies, on the other hand, use hinged mold plates that provide more flexibility and are perfect for low-volume production or R&D applications. A computerized or handbook volumetric dispensing pump and injection product is employed to inject the recoat materials to the mold cavity.
The PTR208 automated recoater comes regular having a mold assembly for Ø430 µm coated fibers; For the manual recoaters (Item #s PTR206, PTR206B, PTR307, and PTR307B), the mold assembly comes individually so that customers can choose the right mold coating diameter for his or her application. Custom mold coating dimensions can be found approximately Ø900 µm. Pre-installing of the mold set up on the factory can also be readily available. Contact Tech Support for more information on custom molds or manufacturer assembly.
We provide each higher-directory (Product # AB950200) and reduced-index (Product # PC373) recoat materials to use within these recoaters. Recoaters with manual injection pumps (Product #s PTR206B and PTR307B) are suitable for each kinds of recoat material; all the other recoaters are appropriate for the high-directory material only. Our manual recoaters with the automated shot program (Item #s PTR206 and PTR307) can be personalized to work with both low- and-directory recoat materials; make sure you contact Technology Assistance for more information.
Proof Tester Options
The PTR206, PTR206B, and PTR208 fiber Recoaters include an incorporated linear evidence tester, that can take the fiber as much as a predetermined load (20 N) and then releases it. The linear proof tester utilizes the identical fiber holding obstructs since the recoater and thus the fiber does not must be moved prior to testing. The PTR307 and PTR307B fiber Recoaters include an incorporated rotary proof tester, which can perform both evidence and tension tests (?89 N). A single set of evidence test grips is included; replacement proof test grips can be purchased below in packages of 10. Every testing process is completely automated using the provided handset or tablet pc controller, enabling the user iuwekk select guidelines like the load, the rate at which the burden is used, and the hold time.
Inserts for fiber Keeping Obstructs
Along with the above, we offer a variety of inserts for use within the Secondary Coating Line in the recoaters in order to back up a wide range of fiber covering diameters. For recoaters using a rotary proof tester, the inserts are appropriate for fiber covering diameters in a range from 125 µm to 900 µm. For recoaters using a linear proof tester, the inserts cover a range for fiber coatings from Ø250 µm to Ø900 µm.
