Fiber proof testers are designed to apply a set up weight to a combination-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 designs, for both proof and tension testing. Fiber proof testers are accessible for solitary setting, multimode, and polarization-sustaining fibers. Pick from devoted, standalone techniques or multipurpose styles which are also able to stripping, cleansing, cleaving, splicing, and/or recoating.
Fiber Recoaters with proof Testers offer easy, incorporated methods to recoat and test combination-spliced materials. The fiber recoating procedure restores the barrier covering to a stripped fiber, offering more flexibility than a warmth-shrink safety sleeve, allowing it to be dealt with and coiled with no damage to the combination-spliced area. The incorporated linear or rotary proof tester allows users to immediately test a recoated fiber with a pre-determined load and find out the long term reliability of the FTTH Cable Production Line. Because of their capability to restore a fusion-spliced fiber to near original problem, these systems are best for programs like undersea optical fiber wires, submarine interaction cabling, fiber lasers, or Distributed Bragg Reflector (DBR) lasers.
The process starts with the combination-spliced part of fiber becoming positioned in the midst of the mildew set up (see image off to the right). As soon as set in place, inserts within the fiber obstructs secure the spliced fiber set up. Recoat materials is motivated into the cavity and then UV-cured. The recoated fiber can then be tested by tugging onto it up to a pre-determined weight.
Recoater and Mold Assembly Options – Recoaters can be purchased with either a computerized or manual mildew set up. The automated mold set up functions pneumatic control of the mold plates and it is enhanced for top-quantity production applications. Handbook mold assemblies, however, use easy-to-open mildew plates that offer much more versatility and are perfect for reduced-volume manufacturing or R&D applications. An automatic or handbook volumetric dispensing water pump and injection system can be used to inject the recoat materials in to the mold cavity.
The PTR208 automated recoater arrives standard using a mildew set up for FTTH Cable Production Line; For your handbook recoaters (Product #s PTR206, PTR206B, PTR307, and PTR307B), the mold assembly comes individually in order that customers can choose the right mildew covering diameter for program. Custom mold coating sizes are available up to Ø900 µm. Pre-installation of the mildew set up in the manufacturer can also be readily available. Contact Technology Support for additional info on custom molds or manufacturer set up.
We provide each high-index (Product # AB950200) and reduced-index (Item # PC373) recoat materials to be used in these recoaters. Recoaters with manual shot pumps (Product #s PTR206B and PTR307B) are compatible with each varieties of recoat material; all other recoaters are appropriate for our prime-directory material only. Our manual recoaters having an automatic injection system (Item #s PTR206 and PTR307) can be personalized to work alongside the low- and-index recoat materials; please contact Technology Support to learn more.
proof Tester Options – The PTR206, PTR206B, and PTR208 Fiber Recoaters have a built-in linear proof tester, that takes the fiber up to and including predetermined weight (20 N) and after that releases it. The linear proof tester utilizes exactly the same fiber keeping obstructs because the recoater and so the fiber fails to must be moved prior to screening. The PTR307 and PTR307B Fiber Recoaters include an integrated rotary proof tester, which could perform both proof and stress assessments (?89 N). One group of proof test grips is provided; replacement proof test grips can be found listed below in packages of 10. Every screening procedure is fully programmable through the provided handset or tablet controller, allowing ikrsve consumer to pick guidelines such as the load, the pace where the load is applied, as well as the hold time.
Inserts for Fiber Holding Blocks – Along with the above, we offer many different inserts to use within the Sheathing Line keeping obstructs of the recoaters to be able to support a wide range of fiber covering diameters. For recoaters using a rotary proof tester, the inserts are compatible with fiber covering diameters in a range from 125 µm to 900 µm. For recoaters having a linear proof tester, the inserts include a range for fiber films from Ø250 µm to Ø900 µm.
