Fiber proof testers are designed to apply a set up load to some fusion-spliced optical fiber in order to test the strength of the spliced fiber. Our fiber proof testers can be purchased in both linear and rotary styles, for proof and tension screening. Fiber proof testers are accessible for solitary setting, multimode, and polarization-sustaining fibers. Choose from dedicated, stand alone systems or multipurpose designs which are also capable of stripping, cleaning, cleaving, splicing, and recoating.
Fiber Recoaters with proof Testers provide simple, integrated answers to recoat and check combination-spliced materials. The fiber recoating process restores the buffer covering to your stripped fiber, offering more versatility compared to a heat-shrink safety sleeve, allowing that it is handled and coiled without damaging the fusion-spliced section. The integrated linear or rotary proof tester allows customers to right away check a recoated fiber using a pre-determined load and find out the long term reliability of the SZ Stranding Line. Because of the ability to restore a combination-spliced fiber to close to original condition, these techniques are best for programs including undersea optical fiber wires, submarine communication wiring, fiber lasers, or Dispersed Bragg Reflector (DBR) lasers.
The procedure starts off with the combination-spliced part of fiber being placed in the middle of the mold set up (see image off to the right). As soon as placed in place, inserts in the fiber obstructs safe the spliced fiber in place. Recoat material is pumped to the cavity then Ultra violet-treated. The recoated fiber may then be tested by tugging onto it as much as a pre-determined weight.
Recoater and Mold Assembly Options – Recoaters can be found with possibly an automated or manual mildew assembly. The automated mildew assembly functions pneumatic control over the mildew dishes and is optimized for high-quantity production applications. Manual mold assemblies, alternatively, use easy-to-open mildew dishes that provide much more flexibility and are best for reduced-volume manufacturing or R&D programs. A computerized or manual volumetric dispensing pump and shot system is used to inject the recoat materials in to the mildew cavity.
The PTR208 automatic recoater comes standard using a mold set up for Optical Fiber Coloring Machine; For your manual recoaters (Product #s PTR206, PTR206B, PTR307, and PTR307B), the mold assembly comes separately so that clients can select the right mold covering diameter for application. Customized mold covering sizes can be purchased approximately Ø900 µm. Pre-installing of the mold assembly at the manufacturer can also be available. Contact Technology Assistance for additional info on customized molds or factory set up.
We provide you with each high-directory (Product # AB950200) and reduced-directory (Product # PC373) recoat components for use during these recoaters. Recoaters with handbook shot pumps (Product #s PTR206B and PTR307B) are compatible with each types of recoat materials; all other recoaters are suitable for the high-directory material only. Our manual recoaters with the automatic injection system (Item #s PTR206 and PTR307) could be customized to do business with both the low- and-directory recoat material; make sure you contact Technology Assistance to learn more.
proof Tester Options – The PTR206, PTR206B, and PTR208 Fiber Recoaters come with a built-in linear proof tester, that takes the fiber up to a predetermined load (20 N) then produces it. The linear proof tester uses exactly the same fiber holding obstructs because the recoater and thus the fiber does not must be relocated prior to testing. The PTR307 and PTR307B Fiber Recoaters have an incorporated rotary proof tester, which could carry out each proof and stress assessments (?89 N). One group of proof test grips is included; substitute proof check grips are available listed below in packs of 10. Every testing procedure is fully programmable using the provided handset or tablet control, allowing ikrsve user to pick parameters such as the load, the speed at which the stress is applied, and also the keep time.
Inserts for Fiber Keeping Obstructs – Along with the previously mentioned, we offer many different inserts to use in the Sheathing Line keeping blocks in the recoaters so that you can assistance a wide range of fiber covering diameters. For recoaters using a rotary proof tester, the inserts are compatible with fiber coating 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.
