Fiber proof testers are designed 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 found in each linear and rotary designs, for both proof and tension testing. Fiber proof testers are accessible for solitary mode, multimode, and polarization-maintaining fibers. Pick from dedicated, standalone techniques or multipurpose designs that are also capable of stripping, cleaning, cleaving, splicing, and recoating.
Fiber Recoaters with Proof Testers offer easy, integrated solutions to recoat and SZ stranding line. The fiber recoating procedure restores the barrier covering to some removed fiber, offering much more flexibility when compared to a heat-reduce protection sleeve, allowing it to be dealt with and coiled without damaging the fusion-spliced area. The integrated linear or rotary evidence tester enables users to instantly test a recoated fiber having a pre-decided load and determine the long-phrase longevity of the fiber. Because of the capacity to restore a fusion-spliced fiber to close to original condition, these techniques are best for applications such as undersea optical fiber wires, submarine communication cabling, fiber lasers, or Dispersed Bragg Reflector (DBR) lasers.
The procedure starts with the combination-spliced part of fiber becoming positioned in the center of the mold assembly (see image towards the right). Once set constantly in place, inserts in the fiber obstructs secure the spliced fiber set up. Recoat materials is pumped in to the cavity then Ultra violet-cured. The recoated fiber can then be analyzed by tugging on it up to a pre-decided load.
Recoater and Mold Set up Choices – Recoaters can be found with either an automated or manual mold set up. The automatic mold assembly functions pneumatic control of the mold dishes and it is optimized for high-volume manufacturing applications. Manual mold assemblies, on the other hand, use easy-to-open mold plates which provide more versatility and are perfect for reduced-volume production or R&D programs. A computerized or handbook volumetric dispensing water pump and shot system is used to inject the recoat material in to the mold cavity.
The PTR208 automatic recoater arrives regular having a mold assembly for Sheathing line; For our manual recoaters (Item #s PTR206, PTR206B, PTR307, and PTR307B), the mold assembly is sold individually to ensure that clients can choose the right mold coating size for application. Custom mold coating sizes are available up to . Pre-installing of the mold set up on the factory is also readily available. Contact Technology Assistance for additional info on custom molds or factory set up.
We provide each higher-directory (Product # AB950200) and low-index (Item # PC373) recoat materials to use in these recoaters. Recoaters with manual injection pumping systems (Product #s PTR206B and PTR307B) are suitable for both types of recoat materials; other recoaters are appropriate for the top-index material only. Our manual recoaters having an automated shot system (Item #s PTR206 and PTR307) can be personalized to work with both reduced- and high-directory recoat material; please get in touch with Technology Assistance for more information.
Proof Tester Choices – The PTR206, PTR206B, and PTR208 Fiber Recoaters come with a built-in linear evidence tester, which takes the SZ stranding line to your predetermined load (20 N) and then releases it. The linear proof tester utilizes exactly the same fiber keeping blocks because the recoater and thus the fiber will not need to be moved just before testing. The PTR307 and PTR307B Fiber Recoaters have a built-in rotary proof tester, which can perform both evidence and tension assessments (89 N). One set of proof test grips is included; replacement proof test bpabim can be purchased listed below in packs of 10. Each testing procedure is fully programmable through the included handset or tablet pc control, enabling the user to select parameters such as the load, the pace at which the load is used, and the hold time.
Inserts for Fiber Holding Blocks – In addition to the previously mentioned, we provide you with a number of inserts to use inside the fiber keeping blocks in the recoaters in order to back up a broad range of fiber covering diameters. For recoaters having a rotary proof tester, the inserts are appropriate for fiber covering diameters within a range from 125 to 900. For recoaters with a linear evidence tester, the inserts include a range for fiber films?.
