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 found in each linear and rotary designs, for both proof and tension testing. Fiber proof testers are accessible for solitary mode, multimode, and polarization-sustaining fibers. Select from dedicated, standalone systems or multi-purpose designs that are also capable of stripping, cleaning, cleaving, splicing, and/or recoating.
Fiber Recoaters with Evidence Testers provide simple, incorporated methods to recoat and secondary coating line. The fiber recoating process restores the barrier covering to your stripped fiber, offering much more flexibility when compared to a heat-shrink safety sleeve, enabling so that it is handled and coiled with no damage to the fusion-spliced area. The incorporated linear or rotary evidence tester allows customers to right away test a recoated fiber with a pre-decided load and determine the long-phrase longevity of the fiber. Because of the capacity to recover a combination-spliced fiber to near initial problem, these systems are best for programs including undersea optical fiber cables, submarine communication cabling, fiber lasers, or Dispersed Bragg Reflector (DBR) lasers.
This process begins with the combination-spliced section of fiber becoming positioned in the midst of the mold assembly (see image towards the right). Once set in position, inserts in the fiber obstructs secure the spliced fiber in place. Recoat material is motivated to the cavity then UV-treated. The recoated fiber can then be analyzed by tugging onto it as much as a pre-determined load.
Recoater and Mold Set up Choices – Recoaters can be found with either an automated or manual mold assembly. The automatic mold set up functions pneumatic charge of the mold dishes and it is optimized for high-volume manufacturing applications. Manual mold assemblies, in the other hand, use hinged mold plates that provide more flexibility and are ideal for low-volume manufacturing or RAndD programs. An automated or manual volumetric dispensing pump and injection system can be used to inject the recoat materials to the mold cavity.
The PTR208 automatic recoater comes standard with a mold set up for secondary coating line; For our handbook recoaters (Product #s PTR206, PTR206B, PTR307, and PTR307B), the mold assembly comes separately so that clients can choose the right mold covering diameter for their application. Custom mold coating sizes are available as much as . Pre-installing of the mold set up in the factory is also readily available. Contact Tech Support to learn more about custom molds or factory set up.
We provide you with both high-directory (Item # AB950200) and low-directory (Product # PC373) recoat materials for use during these recoaters. Recoaters with manual shot pumping systems (Product #s PTR206B and PTR307B) are appropriate for both varieties of recoat material; all the other recoaters are appropriate for our prime-directory materials only. Our manual recoaters with an automated shot system (Product #s PTR206 and PTR307) can be customized to work with both low- and-directory recoat material; make sure you contact Technology Assistance to learn more.
Evidence Tester Options – The PTR206, PTR206B, and PTR208 Fiber Recoaters have a built-in linear evidence tester, which takes the TCC laser printer for cable to some predetermined load (20 N) and then releases it. The linear evidence tester utilizes the identical fiber holding blocks since the recoater and so the fiber will not must be relocated prior to testing. The PTR307 and PTR307B Fiber Recoaters come with a built-in rotary proof tester, which can carry out each proof and tension tests (89 N). One set of evidence test grips is provided; substitute proof test bpabim can be purchased below in packages of 10. Every screening process is fully automated using the provided handset or tablet control, allowing the user to select guidelines like the load, the rate at which the load is used, and the hold time.
Inserts for Fiber Keeping Obstructs – In addition to the previously mentioned, we provide many different inserts to use in the fiber keeping blocks in the recoaters in order to back up a large range of fiber covering diameters. For recoaters with a rotary proof tester, the inserts are compatible with fiber covering diameters in a range from 125 to 900. For recoaters using a linear proof tester, the inserts include a range for fiber coatings?.
