Fiber proof testers are designed to use a set weight to some fusion-spliced optical fiber so that you can check the strength of the spliced fiber. Our fiber proof testers are available in both linear and rotary styles, for both proof and stress screening. Fiber proof testers are for sale to single setting, multimode, and polarization-maintaining fibers. Choose from devoted, standalone systems or multi-purpose styles which can be also capable of stripping, cleaning, cleaving, splicing, or recoating.
Fiber Recoaters with proof Testers provide simple, integrated methods to recoat and test combination-spliced fibers. The fiber recoating process restores the buffer coating to some removed fiber, offering much more flexibility compared to a heat-reduce safety sleeve, allowing so that it is dealt with and coiled with no damage to the fusion-spliced area. The integrated linear or rotary proof tester enables customers to right away test a recoated fiber with a pre-determined weight and figure out the long-term reliability of the FTTH Cable Production Line. Due to their ability to restore a combination-spliced fiber to near initial condition, these systems are perfect for applications such as undersea optical fiber cables, submarine communication wiring, fiber lasers, or Dispersed Bragg Reflector (DBR) lasers.
The process begins with the combination-spliced section of fiber being positioned in the midst of the mold set up (see picture 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 and then UV-cured. The recoated fiber may then be analyzed by pulling into it up to a pre-determined weight.
Recoater and Mold Set up Options – Recoaters are available with either an automatic or manual mold assembly. The automated mildew assembly features pneumatic control over the mildew dishes and is enhanced for top-volume production programs. Manual mold assemblies, alternatively, use hinged mold dishes which provide more flexibility and are ideal for low-quantity manufacturing or R&D programs. An automated or manual volumetric dispensing pump and injection system is utilized to inject the recoat material in to the mildew cavity.
The PTR208 automatic recoater comes standard using a mold set up for Cable Air Wiper; For your handbook recoaters (Item #s PTR206, PTR206B, PTR307, and PTR307B), the mold assembly is sold separately so that customers can choose the best mold coating size for their program. Customized mold coating sizes are available up to Ø900 µm. Pre-setting up the mildew set up in the manufacturer is also readily available. Contact Technology Support for additional info on customized molds or manufacturer set up.
We provide you with both high-index (Item # AB950200) and low-index (Product # PC373) recoat components for use within these recoaters. Recoaters with handbook injection pumping systems (Item #s PTR206B and PTR307B) are suitable for each kinds of recoat material; all the other recoaters are compatible with our prime-index material only. Our handbook recoaters having an automatic injection system (Item #s PTR206 and PTR307) may be customized to do business with the reduced- and high-index recoat material; make sure you contact Tech Support to learn more.
proof Tester Options – The PTR206, PTR206B, and PTR208 Fiber Recoaters have an incorporated linear proof tester, that takes the fiber up to and including predetermined weight (20 N) and then produces it. The linear proof tester uses the same fiber holding blocks since the recoater and so the fiber will not have to be moved just before screening. The PTR307 and PTR307B Fiber Recoaters come with an incorporated rotary proof tester, which could perform each proof and tension tests (?89 N). One set of proof test grips is provided; replacement proof test grips can be found below in packs of 10. Each screening procedure is fully automated via the included handset or tablet pc control, allowing ikrsve consumer to select guidelines including the load, the pace in which the stress is applied, and the keep time.
Inserts for Fiber Holding Blocks – Along with the above, we offer many different inserts to use inside the Yarn Binder keeping obstructs in the recoaters so that you can assistance a wide range of fiber coating diameters. For recoaters using a rotary proof tester, the inserts are suitable for fiber coating diameters inside a vary from 125 µm to 900 µm. For recoaters using a linear proof tester, the inserts include a range for fiber films from Ø250 µm to Ø900 µm.
