Fiber proof testers are designed to use a set load to some fusion-spliced optical fiber to be able to test the strength of the spliced fiber. Our fiber proof testers can be found in both linear and rotary styles, for both proof and tension screening. Fiber proof testers are for sale to solitary mode, multimode, and polarization-sustaining fibers. Select from dedicated, stand alone systems or multipurpose styles that are also able to stripping, cleaning, cleaving, splicing, and/or recoating.
Fiber Recoaters with proof Testers offer easy, integrated answers to recoat and check fusion-spliced materials. The fiber recoating process restores the barrier covering to a removed fiber, providing more flexibility than a heat-shrink safety sleeve, allowing that it is handled and coiled with no damage to the fusion-spliced section. The integrated linear or rotary proof tester allows customers to instantly test a recoated fiber using a pre-determined weight and find out the long term longevity of the Optical Fiber Ribbon Machine. Because of their capability to restore a fusion-spliced fiber to near original condition, these systems are perfect for programs such as undersea optical fiber wires, submarine interaction wiring, fiber lasers, or Distributed Bragg Reflector (DBR) lasers.
The process starts off with the fusion-spliced portion of fiber being positioned in the center of the mildew assembly (see image off to the right). As soon as occur place, inserts within the fiber obstructs secure the spliced fiber in place. Recoat materials is pumped to the cavity and then Ultra violet-treated. The recoated fiber may then be tested by tugging on it up to a pre-decided load.
Recoater and Mold Set up Options – Recoaters can be found with possibly an automatic or manual mold set up. The automated mold set up features pneumatic control of the mold dishes and it is optimized for high-quantity production programs. Manual mold assemblies, however, use easy-to-open mildew dishes which provide much more flexibility and are ideal for reduced-volume production or R&D applications. A computerized or manual volumetric dispensing pump and injection system is used to inject the recoat materials in to the mold cavity.
The PTR208 automated recoater comes standard with a mildew assembly for SZ Stranding Line; For your manual recoaters (Item #s PTR206, PTR206B, PTR307, and PTR307B), the mold set up comes individually to ensure that clients can choose the right mildew covering size for their program. Custom mold covering sizes can be found up to Ø900 µm. Pre-setting up the mold set up at the factory is also available. Contact Tech Assistance to learn more about custom molds or factory set up.
We provide both higher-index (Product # AB950200) and low-index (Product # PC373) recoat materials for use within these recoaters. Recoaters with handbook injection pumps (Product #s PTR206B and PTR307B) are appropriate for each varieties of recoat material; other recoaters are suitable for the top-index materials only. Our handbook recoaters having an automated shot system (Product #s PTR206 and PTR307) can be customized to work with both low- and high-index recoat materials; make sure you contact Tech Assistance for additional information.
proof Tester Options – The PTR206, PTR206B, and PTR208 Fiber Recoaters come with a built-in linear proof tester, which takes the fiber up to a predetermined load (20 N) then produces it. The linear proof tester utilizes the same fiber keeping blocks since the recoater and thus the fiber does not must be relocated just before testing. The PTR307 and PTR307B Fiber Recoaters include an integrated rotary proof tester, which may carry out each proof and stress assessments (?89 N). One set of proof test grips is included; replacement proof test grips are available below in packages of 10. Each screening procedure is fully automated using the included handset or tablet pc controller, allowing ikrsve consumer to select parameters like the load, the speed in which the load is applied, as well as the keep time.
Inserts for Fiber Holding Blocks – In addition to the previously mentioned, we provide a number of inserts to use within the Cable Air Wiper keeping obstructs from the recoaters to be able to assistance a variety of fiber coating diameters. For recoaters having a rotary proof tester, the inserts are compatible with fiber covering diameters inside a vary from 125 µm to 900 µm. For recoaters having a linear proof tester, the inserts include a array for fiber films from Ø250 µm to Ø900 µm.
