Fiber proof testers are created to apply a set load to a fusion-spliced optical fiber in order to test the potency 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 available for single mode, multimode, and polarization-maintaining fibers. Select from dedicated, standalone techniques or multi-purpose designs that are also capable of stripping, cleaning, cleaving, splicing, or recoating.
Fiber Recoaters with Evidence Testers provide simple, incorporated solutions to recoat and Sheathing line. The fiber recoating process restores the buffer coating to a stripped fiber, providing more versatility compared to a warmth-shrink protection sleeve, enabling that it is dealt with and coiled without damaging the combination-spliced section. The integrated linear or rotary proof tester allows customers to right away check a recoated fiber using a pre-decided load and figure out the long-term longevity of the fiber. Due to their capability to recover a fusion-spliced fiber to close to original condition, these systems are perfect for applications including undersea optical fiber cables, submarine interaction cabling, fiber lasers, or Distributed Bragg Reflector (DBR) lasers.
The procedure starts with the combination-spliced section of fiber being positioned in the center of the mold set up (see picture for the right). Once set in place, inserts inside the fiber obstructs safe the spliced fiber in place. Recoat material is pumped into the cavity and then Ultra violet-cured. The recoated fiber can then be analyzed by tugging into it up to a pre-decided load.
Recoater and Mold Set up Options – Recoaters are available with either an automatic or manual mold assembly. The automated mold set up functions pneumatic control over the mold plates and is optimized for high-volume production programs. Handbook mold assemblies, around the other hand, use hinged mold plates that offer much more flexibility and are best for reduced-volume production or R&D applications. An automated or handbook volumetric dispensing pump and injection system can be used to inject the recoat material in to the mold cavity.
The PTR208 automatic recoater arrives standard with a mold assembly for FTTH cable production line; For your manual recoaters (Product #s PTR206, PTR206B, PTR307, and PTR307B), the mold set up is sold separately to ensure that customers can select the right mold covering diameter for application. Custom mold covering dimensions can be found up to . Pre-setting up the mold assembly in the factory is additionally readily available. Contact Technology Support for additional info on custom molds or manufacturer set up.
We offer each high-directory (Item # AB950200) and reduced-directory (Product # PC373) recoat components for use within these recoaters. Recoaters with manual injection pumps (Item #s PTR206B and PTR307B) are suitable for both varieties of recoat materials; other recoaters are appropriate for the top-index materials only. Our manual recoaters having an automatic injection system (Item #s PTR206 and PTR307) can be personalized to work with both the reduced- and-index recoat material; make sure you contact Tech Support for more information.
Proof Tester Options – The PTR206, PTR206B, and PTR208 Fiber Recoaters include an integrated linear proof tester, that can take the TCC laser printer for cable to your predetermined load (20 N) and after that produces it. The linear evidence tester utilizes exactly the same fiber keeping obstructs as the recoater and thus the fiber does not have to be relocated before testing. The PTR307 and PTR307B Fiber Recoaters have an integrated rotary proof tester, which can perform both proof and tension assessments (89 N). One set of proof test grips is provided; substitute evidence check bpabim can be purchased listed below in packages of 10. Every testing process is fully automated via the provided handset or tablet controller, enabling an individual to pick parameters including the load, the speed at which the load is applied, and also the hold time.
Inserts for Fiber Keeping Blocks – In addition to the above, we provide a number of inserts to use inside the fiber keeping obstructs in the recoaters in order to support a large range of fiber covering diameters. For recoaters having a rotary evidence tester, the inserts are appropriate for fiber covering diameters in a range from 125 to 900. For recoaters having a linear evidence tester, the inserts cover a range for fiber coatings?.
