Fiber proof testers are designed 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 purchased in both linear and rotary designs, for both proof and tension testing. Fiber proof testers are for sale to single mode, multimode, and polarization-sustaining fibers. Pick from dedicated, stand alone systems or multipurpose designs that are also capable of stripping, cleaning, cleaving, splicing, and/or recoating.
Fiber Recoaters with Proof Testers provide simple, incorporated solutions to recoat and Sheathing line. The fiber recoating process restores the buffer coating to your stripped fiber, offering more versatility than a warmth-shrink protection sleeve, allowing so that it is dealt with and coiled with no damage to the combination-spliced section. The integrated linear or rotary evidence tester allows users to instantly check a recoated fiber having a pre-decided load and find out the long-term longevity of the fiber. Due to their capability to recover a fusion-spliced fiber to close to initial condition, these techniques are ideal for applications including undersea optical fiber wires, submarine communication cabling, fiber lasers, or Distributed Bragg Reflector (DBR) lasers.
This process begins with the fusion-spliced portion of fiber becoming positioned in the middle of the mold assembly (see picture for the right). As soon as set in place, inserts inside the fiber blocks safe the spliced fiber in position. Recoat materials is motivated in to the cavity and then Ultra violet-cured. The recoated fiber can then be tested by tugging on it as much as a pre-determined load.
Recoater and Mold Set up Choices – Recoaters can be found with either an automatic or handbook mold set up. The automated mold assembly functions pneumatic control of the mold plates and it is optimized for high-volume manufacturing applications. Manual mold assemblies, in the other hand, use easy-to-open mold dishes that offer much more flexibility and are perfect for reduced-volume manufacturing or RAndD applications. A computerized or manual volumetric dispensing water pump and shot system can be used to inject the recoat material to the mold cavity.
The PTR208 automated recoater comes standard using a mold set up for Sheathing line; For the handbook recoaters (Product #s PTR206, PTR206B, PTR307, and PTR307B), the mold set up is sold separately in order that customers can pick the right mold covering diameter for his or her application. Custom mold covering sizes are available up to . Pre-setting up the mold set up in the factory can also be readily available. Get in touch with Tech Support for additional info on custom molds or manufacturer assembly.
We offer each higher-directory (Product # AB950200) and low-index (Product # PC373) recoat components to be used in these recoaters. Recoaters with handbook injection pumps (Item #s PTR206B and PTR307B) are appropriate for each types of recoat material; all the other recoaters are compatible with the top-directory materials only. Our handbook recoaters with the automated shot system (Product #s PTR206 and PTR307) can be personalized to work with both reduced- and high-index recoat materials; make sure you get in touch with Tech Assistance to learn more.
Proof Tester Choices – The PTR206, PTR206B, and PTR208 Fiber Recoaters come with an incorporated linear proof tester, which takes the cable air wiper to your predetermined load (20 N) then releases it. The linear evidence tester uses the same fiber keeping obstructs since the recoater and thus the fiber will not must be relocated prior to testing. The PTR307 and PTR307B Fiber Recoaters come with an incorporated rotary evidence tester, which can carry out each evidence and stress assessments (89 N). One set of evidence check grips is included; replacement evidence check bpabim can be found below in packages of 10. Each testing procedure is fully automated via the included handset or tablet controller, enabling the user to select guidelines like the load, the speed in which the load is applied, and the hold time.
Inserts for Fiber Holding Blocks – As well as the above, we provide you with a number of inserts for use in the fiber keeping blocks in the recoaters in order to aid a large range of fiber covering diameters. For recoaters using a rotary proof tester, the inserts are suitable for fiber covering diameters inside a range from 125 to 900. For recoaters having a linear evidence tester, the inserts include a range for fiber coatings?.
