Fiber evidence testers are made to apply a set load to Secondary Coating Line in order to test the potency of the spliced fiber. Our fiber proof testers can be purchased in both linear and rotary styles, for both proof and stress screening. fiber evidence testers are available for single mode, multimode, and polarization-sustaining fibers. Choose from devoted, stand alone systems or multi-purpose styles that are also capable of stripping, cleansing, cleaving, splicing, and/or recoating.
fiber Recoaters with Proof Testers offer simple, incorporated methods to recoat and check fusion-spliced fibers. The fiber recoating process restores the barrier covering to a removed fiber, providing much more flexibility when compared to a heat-reduce safety sleeve, allowing that it is dealt with and coiled with no damage to the fusion-spliced area. The incorporated linear or rotary proof tester allows customers to instantly check a recoated fiber with a pre-decided load and find out the long-phrase longevity of the fiber. Due to their capacity to restore a fusion-spliced fiber to near initial problem, these techniques are ideal for applications including undersea optical fiber wires, submarine interaction wiring, fiber lasers, or Distributed Bragg Reflector (DBR) lasers.
This process starts with the combination-spliced part of fiber becoming positioned in the middle of the mold set up (see picture for the right). As soon as set in place, inserts in the fiber obstructs secure the spliced fiber set up. Recoat material is motivated to the cavity and then UV-treated. The Optical Fiber Ribbon Machine can then be analyzed by tugging into it up to a pre-decided weight.
Recoater and Mold Set up Options
Recoaters can be purchased with either a computerized or manual mold assembly. The automated mold assembly features pneumatic charge of the mold dishes and is also enhanced for top-volume manufacturing applications. Handbook mold assemblies, on the other hand, use hinged mold dishes that offer more versatility and are perfect for low-volume production or R&D programs. An automatic or manual volumetric dispensing water pump and shot method is employed to inject the recoat materials into the mold cavity.
The PTR208 automatic recoater comes standard having a mold assembly for Ø430 µm covered materials; For our handbook recoaters (Item #s PTR206, PTR206B, PTR307, and PTR307B), the mold assembly comes individually so that clients can select the right mold coating diameter for their application. Custom mold covering sizes are available up to Ø900 µm. Pre-setting up the mold set up at the factory is additionally readily available. Contact Tech Support to learn more about custom molds or manufacturer assembly.
We provide both high-directory (Product # AB950200) and reduced-directory (Product # PC373) recoat components for use in these recoaters. Recoaters with manual shot pumps (Item #s PTR206B and PTR307B) are suitable for each varieties of recoat materials; other recoaters are suitable for our prime-directory material only. Our handbook recoaters having an automated shot program (Item #s PTR206 and PTR307) can be customized to work with both the reduced- and-index recoat materials; please get in touch with Tech Assistance for more information.
Evidence Tester Choices
The PTR206, PTR206B, and PTR208 fiber Recoaters have an integrated linear proof tester, which takes the fiber up to a predetermined load (20 N) then produces it. The linear evidence tester utilizes exactly the same fiber holding blocks since the recoater and so the fiber fails to must be moved just before 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 included; replacement proof test grips are available below in packs of 10. Every testing procedure is fully programmable via the included handset or tablet control, allowing the user iuwekk choose parameters such as the load, the speed at which the stress is used, and the hold time.
Inserts for fiber Holding Obstructs
In addition to the above, we provide you with a variety of inserts to be used in the SZ Stranding Line of the recoaters in order to support a wide range of fiber coating 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 coatings from Ø250 µm to Ø900 µm.
