Fiber proof testers are designed to use a set load to some fusion-spliced optical fiber in order to test the effectiveness of the spliced fiber. Our fiber proof testers are available in both linear and rotary designs, both for proof and tension testing. Fiber proof testers are available for single setting, multimode, and polarization-sustaining fibers. Select from devoted, standalone systems or multi-purpose designs which can be also capable of stripping, cleaning, cleaving, splicing, or recoating.
Fiber Recoaters with proof Testers offer easy, integrated answers to recoat and check combination-spliced fibers. The fiber recoating process restores the barrier coating to some stripped fiber, providing more versatility compared to a heat-reduce protection sleeve, enabling so that it is dealt with and coiled without damaging the fusion-spliced section. The incorporated linear or rotary proof tester enables customers to immediately check a recoated fiber with a pre-decided load and determine the long-term reliability of the SZ Stranding Line. Because of the ability to restore a combination-spliced fiber to close to initial condition, these systems are ideal for programs such as undersea optical fiber wires, submarine interaction wiring, fiber lasers, or Dispersed Bragg Reflector (DBR) lasers.
The procedure starts with the combination-spliced part of fiber being positioned in the center of the mold set up (see image to the right). As soon as occur place, inserts inside the fiber blocks secure the spliced fiber in place. Recoat materials is pumped to the cavity and after that UV-cured. The recoated fiber may then be tested by pulling on it up to and including pre-decided weight.
Recoater and Mildew Assembly Options – Recoaters can be found with either an automated or manual mildew set up. The automatic mold set up functions pneumatic control of the mold dishes and is also enhanced for top-volume manufacturing programs. Handbook mildew assemblies, alternatively, use hinged mildew plates that offer much more flexibility and are ideal for low-volume production or RAndD programs. An automatic or handbook volumetric dispensing pump and injection system is used to inject the recoat material to the mold cavity.
The PTR208 automated recoater arrives regular using a mold assembly for Secondary Coating Line; For our manual recoaters (Product #s PTR206, PTR206B, PTR307, and PTR307B), the mildew assembly is sold separately to ensure that clients can choose the right mildew covering size for program. Custom mildew covering sizes are available up to Ø900 µm. Pre-installation of the mildew assembly on the manufacturer is additionally readily available. Contact Tech Support for additional info on custom molds or factory set up.
We offer both high-directory (Product # AB950200) and reduced-directory (Item # PC373) recoat components to be used in these recoaters. Recoaters with handbook injection pumping systems (Item #s PTR206B and PTR307B) are compatible with both kinds of recoat material; other recoaters are appropriate for the high-directory materials only. Our handbook recoaters with the automated shot system (Item #s PTR206 and PTR307) may be personalized to work alongside both the reduced- and high-index recoat materials; make sure you contact Tech Support to learn more.
proof Tester Options – The PTR206, PTR206B, and PTR208 Fiber Recoaters include an incorporated linear proof tester, that takes the fiber as much as a predetermined load (20 N) and after that produces it. The linear proof tester utilizes the same fiber keeping obstructs as the recoater and thus the fiber does not need to be moved just before testing. The PTR307 and PTR307B Fiber Recoaters include an incorporated rotary proof tester, which may carry out both proof and stress assessments (?89 N). One set of proof test grips is provided; substitute proof test grips are available below in packs of 10. Every testing procedure is fully programmable through the included handset or tablet pc controller, enabling ikrsve consumer to choose guidelines including the weight, the rate where the burden is used, and the keep time.
Inserts for Fiber Keeping Blocks – In addition to the previously mentioned, we offer a number of inserts for use within the Optical Fiber Ribbon Machine keeping blocks of the recoaters in order to assistance an array of fiber coating diameters. For recoaters having a rotary proof tester, the inserts are appropriate for fiber covering diameters within a range from 125 µm to 900 µm. For recoaters having a linear proof tester, the inserts cover a range for fiber coatings from Ø250 µm to Ø900 µm.
