Fiber proof testers are made to apply a set load to a fusion-spliced optical fiber in order to test the effectiveness of the spliced fiber. Our fiber proof testers are available in each linear and rotary designs, for both proof and tension testing. Fiber evidence 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/or recoating.
Fiber Recoaters with Proof Testers offer easy, incorporated answers to recoat and optical fiber ribbon machine. The fiber recoating process restores the buffer covering to some removed fiber, providing much more versatility compared to a warmth-shrink safety sleeve, enabling that it is handled and coiled with no damage to the combination-spliced section. The incorporated linear or rotary evidence tester enables users to right away check a recoated fiber having a pre-decided load and determine the long-phrase longevity of the fiber. Because of their capacity to recover a combination-spliced fiber to close to initial condition, these techniques are ideal for programs like undersea optical fiber wires, submarine communication cabling, fiber lasers, or Distributed Bragg Reflector (DBR) lasers.
The procedure starts off with the combination-spliced section of fiber becoming positioned in the midst of the mold assembly (see picture towards the right). Once set in place, inserts in the fiber blocks safe the spliced fiber set up. Recoat materials is motivated in to the cavity and after that Ultra violet-cured. The recoated fiber can then be analyzed by pulling on it as much as a pre-decided load.
Recoater and Mold Assembly Options – Recoaters can be purchased with either an automated or handbook mold set up. The automatic mold assembly features pneumatic control of the mold dishes and it is optimized for high-volume manufacturing applications. Manual mold assemblies, around the other hand, use hinged mold plates that offer more versatility and are best for reduced-volume manufacturing or R&D applications. An automated or handbook volumetric dispensing water pump and shot system is used to inject the recoat materials into the mold cavity.
The PTR208 automatic recoater arrives regular with a mold set up for tape former; For your manual recoaters (Product #s PTR206, PTR206B, PTR307, and PTR307B), the mold set up comes separately so that customers can select the right mold coating diameter for application. Custom mold covering sizes can be purchased as much as . Pre-installation of the mold assembly in the factory is additionally available. Contact Tech Support for more information on custom molds or factory set up.
We provide you with both higher-index (Product # AB950200) and reduced-index (Item # PC373) recoat components for use in these recoaters. Recoaters with manual shot pumps (Item #s PTR206B and PTR307B) are compatible with both types of recoat materials; all the other recoaters are compatible with the high-index material only. Our handbook recoaters with an automatic injection system (Item #s PTR206 and PTR307) can be customized to work with the low- and-directory recoat materials; please contact Technology Assistance for more information.
Evidence Tester Choices – The PTR206, PTR206B, and PTR208 Fiber Recoaters include a built-in linear proof tester, that can take the yarn binder to some predetermined load (20 N) then produces it. The linear proof tester uses the identical fiber keeping blocks as the recoater and therefore the fiber will not need to be relocated just before testing. The PTR307 and PTR307B Fiber Recoaters include an incorporated rotary proof tester, which can perform both evidence and tension tests (89 N). One set of proof test grips is provided; replacement evidence test bpabim can be found below in packages of 10. Each testing process is fully programmable using the provided handset or tablet controller, allowing an individual to pick parameters including the load, the rate at which the load is applied, and the hold time.
Inserts for Fiber Keeping Obstructs – As well as the previously mentioned, we offer a variety of inserts to use in the fiber keeping blocks from the recoaters in order to support a wide range of fiber covering diameters. For recoaters having a rotary evidence tester, the inserts are compatible with fiber covering diameters inside a range from 125 to 900. For recoaters with a linear proof tester, the inserts include a range for fiber coatings?.
