Fiber evidence testers are made to use a set load to Secondary Coating Line in order to check the potency of the spliced fiber. Our fiber evidence testers can be found in both linear and rotary designs, for both proof and tension testing. fiber proof testers are available for solitary mode, multimode, and polarization-maintaining fibers. Pick from devoted, standalone techniques or multipurpose designs which are also capable of stripping, cleaning, cleaving, splicing, and/or recoating.
fiber Recoaters with Proof Testers offer simple, incorporated methods to recoat and check fusion-spliced materials. The fiber recoating process restores the barrier coating to your removed fiber, offering more versatility compared to a heat-reduce safety 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 enables users to immediately check a recoated fiber having a pre-decided weight and figure out the long-phrase reliability of the fiber. Due to their capacity to restore a fusion-spliced fiber to close to initial problem, these techniques are ideal for applications such as undersea optical fiber wires, submarine communication cabling, fiber lasers, or Dispersed Bragg Reflector (DBR) lasers.
The process begins with the combination-spliced portion of fiber being placed in the middle of the mold assembly (see picture for the right). As soon as set in place, inserts within the fiber blocks secure the spliced fiber set up. Recoat material is motivated to the cavity then Ultra violet-cured. The SZ Stranding Line can then be tested by pulling onto it up to and including pre-decided weight.
Recoater and Mold Assembly Choices
Recoaters can be found with either an automatic or manual mold assembly. The automated mold assembly functions pneumatic charge of the mold dishes and is enhanced for high-volume production applications. Handbook mold assemblies, on the other hand, use hinged mold dishes that provide much more versatility and are best for low-volume manufacturing or R&D programs. A computerized or manual volumetric dispensing water pump and injection system is utilized to inject the recoat materials into the mold cavity.
The PTR208 automated recoater comes regular having a mold set up for Ø430 µm covered fibers; For your manual recoaters (Item #s PTR206, PTR206B, PTR307, and PTR307B), the mold set up is sold separately in order that customers can choose the right mold covering size for their application. Custom mold covering sizes are available as much as Ø900 µm. Pre-installing of the mold set up at the manufacturer can also be readily available. Contact Tech Support for additional info on custom molds or manufacturer set up.
We provide each higher-directory (Item # AB950200) and reduced-directory (Item # PC373) recoat materials for use within these recoaters. Recoaters with manual shot pumping systems (Item #s PTR206B and PTR307B) are appropriate for both kinds of recoat material; all other recoaters are suitable for the top-directory materials only. Our manual recoaters with the automatic injection program (Product #s PTR206 and PTR307) can be customized to work with both reduced- and-index recoat materials; please contact Tech Assistance for more information.
Proof Tester Options
The PTR206, PTR206B, and PTR208 fiber Recoaters have an incorporated linear proof tester, that can take the fiber as much as a predetermined load (20 N) and then releases it. The linear evidence tester uses the same fiber keeping obstructs as the recoater and so the fiber does not need to be relocated before screening. The PTR307 and PTR307B fiber Recoaters come with a built-in rotary evidence tester, which can perform each evidence and tension assessments (?89 N). A single set of proof check grips is provided; replacement proof test grips can be purchased below in packs of 10. Each testing procedure is fully automated using the provided handset or tablet controller, enabling the user iuwekk choose parameters such as the weight, the pace where the stress is applied, and also the hold time.
Inserts for fiber Holding Blocks
In addition to the above, we provide you with many different inserts for use in the Secondary Coating Line from the recoaters in order to back up a broad range of fiber covering diameters. For recoaters having a rotary evidence tester, the inserts are compatible with fiber coating diameters in a range from 125 µm to 900 µm. For recoaters having a linear evidence tester, the inserts include a range for fiber films from Ø250 µm to Ø900 µm.
