Fiber proof testers are made to apply a set load to FTTH Cable Production Line in order to check the potency of the spliced fiber. Our fiber evidence testers can be purchased in both linear and rotary designs, for both evidence and tension testing. fiber evidence testers are available for single setting, multimode, and polarization-maintaining fibers. Pick from devoted, stand alone techniques or multipurpose styles which are also capable of stripping, cleaning, cleaving, splicing, and/or recoating.
fiber Recoaters with Proof Testers offer simple, integrated solutions to recoat and test combination-spliced materials. The fiber recoating procedure restores the barrier coating to some removed fiber, offering more flexibility when compared to a heat-shrink safety sleeve, enabling that it is handled and coiled without damaging the fusion-spliced area. The integrated linear or rotary evidence tester enables customers to immediately test a recoated fiber with a pre-decided load and determine the long-term longevity of the fiber. Because of the capacity to recover a fusion-spliced fiber to near original condition, these systems are best for programs like undersea optical fiber wires, submarine interaction wiring, fiber lasers, or Distributed Bragg Reflector (DBR) lasers.
The procedure starts with the combination-spliced portion of fiber being positioned in the center of the mold assembly (see picture for the right). Once set in place, inserts inside the fiber obstructs safe the spliced fiber set up. Recoat material is pumped to the cavity and after that Ultra violet-cured. The FTTH Cable Production Line can then be analyzed by tugging into it as much as a pre-determined weight.
Recoater and Mold Assembly Options
Recoaters are available with either a computerized or manual mold set up. The automatic mold set up features pneumatic charge of the mold dishes and is optimized for high-volume manufacturing applications. Handbook mold assemblies, on the other hand, use hinged mold plates that provide more flexibility and are best for reduced-volume manufacturing or RAndD programs. An automatic or manual volumetric dispensing pump and shot system is utilized to inject the recoat materials to the mold cavity.
The PTR208 automatic recoater arrives standard using a mold assembly for Ø430 µm covered materials; For our manual recoaters (Product #s PTR206, PTR206B, PTR307, and PTR307B), the mold set up comes separately in order that clients can select the right mold covering diameter for their program. Custom mold coating dimensions can be found as much as Ø900 µm. Pre-installing of the mold set up at the manufacturer is also readily available. Get in touch with Tech Assistance for additional info on custom molds or factory set up.
We provide each higher-directory (Item # AB950200) and reduced-index (Product # PC373) recoat materials for use in these recoaters. Recoaters with manual injection pumps (Item #s PTR206B and PTR307B) are suitable for each kinds of recoat material; all the other recoaters are compatible with the high-index materials only. Our manual recoaters with the automated shot program (Item #s PTR206 and PTR307) can be personalized to work with both the reduced- and-directory recoat material; please contact Tech Assistance to learn more.
Proof Tester Choices
The PTR206, PTR206B, and PTR208 fiber Recoaters have a built-in linear evidence tester, that takes the fiber up to a predetermined load (20 N) and after that produces it. The linear evidence tester utilizes the identical fiber holding obstructs since the recoater and thus the fiber fails to need to be moved before testing. The PTR307 and PTR307B fiber Recoaters come with an integrated rotary proof tester, which can perform both proof and tension tests (?89 N). A single set of evidence check grips is provided; substitute evidence test grips are available below in packages of 10. Every screening process is completely programmable through the included handset or tablet pc controller, enabling the consumer iuwekk choose guidelines such as the load, the rate where the burden is used, and also the hold time.
Inserts for fiber Holding Obstructs
As well as the above, we provide a variety of inserts to use inside the Secondary Coating Line from the recoaters in order to support a broad range of fiber coating diameters. For recoaters using a rotary evidence tester, the inserts are suitable for fiber coating diameters in a range from 125 µm to 900 µm. For recoaters having a linear evidence tester, the inserts include a range for fiber films from Ø250 µm to Ø900 µm.
