Fiber proof testers are made to apply a set load to a fusion-spliced optical fiber in order to test the strength of the spliced fiber. Our fiber proof testers can be purchased in each linear and rotary designs, for both proof and tension testing. Fiber evidence testers are for sale to solitary mode, multimode, and polarization-maintaining fibers. Select from dedicated, stand alone systems or multi-purpose designs that are also capable of stripping, cleaning, cleaving, splicing, and/or recoating.
Fiber Recoaters with Evidence Testers provide easy, integrated answers to recoat and Sheathing line. The fiber recoating process restores the buffer covering to a stripped fiber, providing more versatility compared to a warmth-shrink protection sleeve, enabling so that it is handled and coiled without damaging the fusion-spliced area. The incorporated linear or rotary proof tester enables customers to right away check a recoated fiber having a pre-decided load and figure out the long-term longevity of the fiber. Because of the capacity to recover a fusion-spliced fiber to close to original condition, these systems are perfect for programs like undersea optical fiber cables, submarine communication cabling, fiber lasers, or Distributed Bragg Reflector (DBR) lasers.
This process begins with the combination-spliced section of fiber being positioned in the middle of the mold set up (see image for the right). Once set constantly in place, inserts in the fiber obstructs secure the spliced fiber set up. Recoat materials is pumped to the cavity then Ultra violet-treated. The recoated fiber can then be analyzed by pulling onto it up to and including pre-decided load.
Recoater and Mold Assembly Choices – Recoaters are available with either a computerized or handbook mold assembly. The automatic mold assembly functions pneumatic control of the mold dishes and is optimized for high-volume production applications. Handbook mold assemblies, around the other hand, use easy-to-open mold dishes that provide much more flexibility and are best for reduced-volume manufacturing or RAndD programs. A computerized or handbook volumetric dispensing pump and injection system can be used to inject the recoat material into the mold cavity.
The PTR208 automated recoater arrives standard with a mold assembly for tape former; For the handbook recoaters (Product #s PTR206, PTR206B, PTR307, and PTR307B), the mold assembly comes separately to ensure that clients can choose the right mold coating diameter for their application. Custom mold covering dimensions are available as much as . Pre-installation of the mold assembly at the manufacturer is also readily available. Contact Technology Support for more information on custom molds or manufacturer set up.
We provide each high-index (Item # AB950200) and low-index (Item # PC373) recoat materials to be used within these recoaters. Recoaters with manual shot pumping systems (Product #s PTR206B and PTR307B) are appropriate for each varieties of recoat material; other recoaters are compatible with the top-directory material only. Our manual recoaters with the automatic injection system (Item #s PTR206 and PTR307) can be personalized to work with both the reduced- and high-directory recoat materials; make sure you get in touch with Tech Assistance for more information.
Evidence Tester Options – The PTR206, PTR206B, and PTR208 Fiber Recoaters have a built-in linear proof tester, that takes the yarn binder to a predetermined load (20 N) then releases it. The linear proof tester utilizes exactly the same fiber keeping obstructs since the recoater and so the fiber will not must be moved before testing. The PTR307 and PTR307B Fiber Recoaters include a built-in rotary evidence tester, which can carry out both proof and stress tests (89 N). One set of evidence check grips is provided; replacement evidence test bpabim can be found listed below in packs of 10. Each testing procedure is fully automated through the provided handset or tablet pc controller, allowing the user to select guidelines like the load, the speed at which the load is applied, as well as the hold time.
Inserts for Fiber Holding Blocks – As well as the previously mentioned, we offer a variety of inserts to be used in the fiber keeping obstructs from the recoaters in order to aid a wide range of fiber covering diameters. For recoaters with a rotary evidence tester, the inserts are appropriate for fiber coating diameters in a range from 125 to 900. For recoaters having a linear evidence tester, the inserts cover a range for fiber films?.
