Fiber evidence testers are designed to apply a set load to Secondary Coating Line in order to evaluate the strength of the spliced fiber. Our fiber proof testers can be purchased in both linear and rotary designs, for both evidence and stress testing. fiber evidence testers are available for single mode, multimode, and polarization-sustaining materials. Choose 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 offer simple, integrated answers to recoat and test fusion-spliced fibers. The fiber recoating procedure restores the buffer covering to your stripped fiber, providing more flexibility compared to a heat-shrink protection sleeve, enabling that it is handled and coiled with no damage to the combination-spliced section. The integrated linear or rotary proof tester allows users to immediately test a recoated fiber having a pre-decided weight and determine the long-term longevity of the fiber. Due to their capacity to restore a fusion-spliced fiber to close to initial condition, these techniques are ideal for applications like undersea optical fiber cables, submarine communication wiring, fiber lasers, or Dispersed Bragg Reflector (DBR) lasers.
The procedure begins with the combination-spliced portion of fiber becoming positioned in the midst of the mold set up (see picture to the right). Once set constantly in place, inserts inside the fiber obstructs secure the spliced fiber set up. Recoat materials is motivated to the cavity and then UV-treated. The Fiber Drawing Machine can then be tested by pulling onto it as much as a pre-decided weight.
Recoater and Mold Set up Choices
Recoaters are available with either an automatic or manual mold set up. The automated mold set up functions pneumatic control of the mold dishes and is also optimized for high-volume manufacturing applications. Handbook mold assemblies, on the other hand, use hinged mold plates that offer more versatility and are perfect for reduced-volume production or RAndD programs. An automatic or manual volumetric dispensing water pump and shot product is used to inject the recoat material to the mold cavity.
The PTR208 automatic recoater arrives regular having a mold assembly for Ø430 µm covered fibers; For your manual recoaters (Item #s PTR206, PTR206B, PTR307, and PTR307B), the mold assembly comes individually so that clients can select the right mold coating size for application. Custom mold coating dimensions can be purchased up to Ø900 µm. Pre-setting up the mold set up at the manufacturer is also available. Get in touch with Tech Assistance for more information on custom molds or manufacturer assembly.
We offer each high-index (Item # AB950200) and low-index (Item # PC373) recoat materials to use during these recoaters. Recoaters with handbook injection pumps (Product #s PTR206B and PTR307B) are suitable for both varieties of recoat materials; other recoaters are suitable for our prime-directory material only. Our handbook recoaters with an automated shot system (Product #s PTR206 and PTR307) can be personalized to work with both reduced- and-directory recoat materials; make sure you get in touch with Technology Support to learn more.
Proof Tester Options
The PTR206, PTR206B, and PTR208 fiber Recoaters have an incorporated linear proof tester, which takes the fiber up to and including predetermined weight (20 N) then produces it. The linear proof tester utilizes exactly the same fiber keeping blocks because the recoater and so the fiber does not must be relocated just before testing. The PTR307 and PTR307B fiber Recoaters include an incorporated rotary evidence tester, which can perform each evidence and tension tests (?89 N). One set of evidence test grips is included; substitute proof test grips can be found below in packs of 10. Each testing procedure is completely programmable via the included handset or tablet controller, allowing an individual iuwekk select parameters including the weight, the rate at which the stress is used, as well as the hold time.
Inserts for fiber Keeping Blocks
In addition to the above, we provide many different inserts to be used inside the FTTH Cable Production Line of the recoaters in order to aid a wide range of fiber covering diameters. For recoaters with a rotary proof tester, the inserts are suitable for fiber coating diameters in a range from 125 µm to 900 µm. For recoaters with a linear evidence tester, the inserts cover a range for fiber films from Ø250 µm to Ø900 µm.
