This automated optical Fiber tensile testing system is made for owner ability independent use in production and lab settings. Two fundamental model configurations enable the user to select between a set up for regular linear proof testing and with additional mandrels for rotary high strength testing.
The linear version is made for creation proof screening with causes as much as 22 N. Motor-driven clamps with carefully designed rubber inserts be sure that the Fiber coating is not really damaged in the screening procedure while at the same time getting rid of the need for an external air supply. Degrees of tugging force, tugging speed and hold time are automated and easily available to the FTTH Cable Production Line from the built-in LCD touch screen manage. Information from tests can be stored and accessed through the Universal serial bus port or Ethernet user interface.
Mandrels the exact same design like NYFORS’ optical Fiber recoaters can be mounted on the proof tester within the rotary high power settings. The Fiber is covered round the two mandrels which support it with a special clamping mechanism. By doing this much higher lots can be employed onto the Fiber, allowing breaking up power tests below controlled circumstances.
Adjustable clamp positioning facilitates screening using the greatest force levels as well as testing of short Fiber lengths. The lightweight and light bodyweight design helps make the tool simple to move around in Cable Air Wiper and also to incorporate inside a production work bench where space are at reasonably limited. The machine is really a compact and lightweight instrument perfect for screening the effectiveness of visual fibers approximately 30 N. The device is created to meet all sorts of applications when a strength test needs to be carried out.
The equipment was created using the consumer in mind. The Fiber is easily put into the carefully guided linear clamps, and the testing starts automatically using a “One Touch” go button. The built in microprocessor controls each of the important guidelines such as tugging force, pulling velocity and hold time. This allows for any totally controlled test each and every time.
The machine can be linked to an outside PC, which allows access to all automated guidelines and configurations. The machine is tailored to stand-alone use or to the integration into various subsystems. The equipment comes with an extensive capability of logging and conserving details like pulling force, tugging speed and Fiber size along with other guidelines.
Two recoat injector designs are available. The PTR307 utilizes an automated pump to inject the recoat material. The volume of materials dispensed through the automated injector is controlled by hand using the top-mounted “Inject” switch or programmed into the machine using the tablet control. The PTR307B includes a manual recoat shot program that will require the user to manually distribute the recoat material to the mold cavity; a substitute injector for the PTR307B recoater can be obtained listed below. Make sure you note that the automatic injector is simply appropriate for high-directory recoat material, as the handbook injector is compatible with both reduced- and- index recoat materials; both of them are marketed separately below. Make sure you get in touch with Technology Assistance for additional information.
he manual injector can be installed to compatible Fiber recoaters via the 4-40 anchoring screws on the recoater real estate (see picture towards the right). Make use of a 3/32″ hex key to secure the injector before use. To connect the PTRRRM for the recoater mold, tighten up the connector at the conclusion of the green plastic tubing, then release by a 1/4 turn to enable rotation.
The injector is equipped with a distribution device as well as 2-position selection handle for directing the stream of recoat material. A knurled dispensing attach with an internal plunger acts as a syringe for your recoat material. To fill up the Secondary Coating Line, point the handle downward (i.e., towards the recoat container), then spin the knurled dispensing attach counterclockwise until it spins easily to fill up the syringe (demonstrated within the picture for the right). Then, to inject the recoat material to the mold, point the handle horizontally (i.e., dealing with the knurled attach) and fdrofe the screw clockwise until near the end from the journey range is achieved. Steer clear of bottoming out your dispenser as this may harm the inner plunger; also take care when re-engaging the threads to prevent go across threading the dispensing attach. A number of fill/inject steps may be required till air is displaced inside the system. Use lens tissue and an acetone or alcohol cleaning solution to collect any extra recoat materials that flows from the mold.
