This automated optical fiber tensile testing system is made for operator skill independent use in creation and lab settings. Two basic model configurations permit the user to pick between a set up for secondary coating line and with additional mandrels for rotary high strength testing.
The linear version is designed for creation evidence screening with forces as much as 22 N. Motorized clamps with very carefully developed rubberized inserts ensure that the fiber covering will not be ruined within the testing process whilst simultaneously eliminating the need for an external air provide. Levels of pulling force, tugging velocity and hold time are automated and conveniently accessible to the owner with the built in Liquid crystal display touch-screen manage. Data from assessments can be stored and reached using the Universal serial bus dock or Ethernet interface.
Mandrels of the identical style as with NYFORS? optical fiber recoaters can easily be installed on the evidence tester in the rotary higher strength settings. The fiber is wrapped round the two mandrels which assistance it having a special clamping system. By doing this much higher loads can be applied on the fiber, allowing breaking power assessments below managed circumstances.
Changeable clamp positioning facilitates testing using the highest force levels as well as testing of brief fiber measures. The lightweight and light weight style makes the instrument simple to maneuver in a laboratory atmosphere as well as integrate in a production work bench in which space is at reasonably limited. The machine is a lightweight and light-weight tool suitable for testing the effectiveness of optical fibers up to 30 N. The machine is created to fulfill all sorts of programs where a power test must be carried out.
The machine was created with the user in mind. The optical fiber ribbon machine is easily placed in the carefully guided linear clamps, and the testing starts automatically having a One Contact go button. The built in microprocessor controls all the important guidelines including pulling force, pulling speed and hold time. This permits to get a totally controlled test each time.
The machine can be linked to an external PC, which allows access to all automated guidelines and settings. The machine is tailored to face-on your own use or the incorporation into different subsystems. The machine comes with an substantial ability of signing and conserving information such as tugging force, tugging speed and fiber diameter as well as other parameters.
Two recoat injector configurations can be purchased. The PTR307 uses a computerized water pump to inject the recoat materials. The volume of material dispensed through the automated injector is controlled by hand via the top-mounted “Inject” switch or programmed in to the machine making use of the tablet control. The PTR307B features a manual recoat shot system that will require the user to personally dispense the recoat material into the mold cavity; a substitute injector for the PTR307B recoater is accessible listed below. Please note that this automatic injector is simply appropriate for higher-directory recoat material, while the Sheathing line is compatible with both low- and high- index bpabim material; both of them are sold individually listed below. Make sure you contact Technology Support for more information.
he handbook injector can be mounted to suitable fiber recoaters using the 4-40 screws on the recoater real estate (see picture to the right). Utilize a 3/32″ hex key to safe the injector just before use. For connecting the PTRRRM to the recoater mold, tighten up the connector after the eco-friendly plastic tubing, then loosen by a 1/4 turn to enable rotation.
The injector comes with a distribution valve and 2-place choice lever for directing the stream of recoat material. A knurled dispensing attach with an internal plunger behaves as a syringe for your recoat materials. To fill the syringe, point the handle downwards (i.e., towards the recoat bottle), then rotate the knurled dispensing attach counterclockwise until it spins easily to fill up the syringe (shown inside the photo towards the right). Then, to inject the recoat material in to the mold, point the handle horizontally (i.e., facing the knurled attach) and rotate the attach clockwise till nearby the end in the travel range is achieved. Avoid bottoming out the dispenser as this may harm the inner plunger; also be mindful when re-engaging the threads to prevent go across threading the dispensing screw. A number of fill/inject steps may be required until air is displaced in the system. Use camera lens cells plus an acetone or alcohol cleaning solution to gather any excess recoat material that runs through the mold.
