This automatic optical fiber tensile testing system is designed for operator skill impartial use in production and laboratory settings. Two basic design configurations enable the consumer to pick between a set up for regular linear proof testing along with extra mandrels for rotary higher strength testing.
The linear version is designed for production evidence testing with forces up to 22 N. Motor-driven clamps with carefully developed rubber inserts be sure that the Secondary Coating Line is not really damaged within the testing procedure while concurrently eliminating the requirement for an outside air supply. Degrees of pulling force, pulling speed and hold time are automated and conveniently accessible to the operator through the built-in Liquid crystal display touchscreen display manage. Data from tests can be saved and accessed using the Universal serial bus port or Ethernet user interface.
Mandrels the exact same style as in NYFORS’ optical fiber recoaters can be easily attached to the evidence tester inside the rotary higher power configuration. The fiber is wrapped across the two mandrels which assistance it having a unique clamping system. By doing this greater loads can be employed on the fiber, enabling breaking power tests below controlled conditions.
Adjustable clamp placement facilitates screening using the highest force amounts as well as screening of brief fiber measures. The lightweight and light weight style helps make the tool simple to move around in a laboratory atmosphere and to incorporate within a production work table where space is at a premium. The machine is a compact and lightweight tool ideal for screening the strength of optical fibers approximately 30 N. The machine is designed to meet all sorts of programs where a power test must be performed.
The machine is designed with all the user in mind. The fiber is definitely placed in the guided linear clamps, as well as the testing begins instantly with a “One Touch” go button. The built in microprocessor controls each of the essential parameters such as pulling force, pulling speed and hold time. This permits to get a totally managed check each and every time.
The machine can be connected to an external Computer, which enables use of all automated guidelines and configurations. The machine is tailored to stand-alone use or to the integration into various subsystems. The machine has an extensive capacity for logging and saving information including pulling force, pulling velocity and Secondary Coating Line along with other parameters.
Two recoat injector designs are available. The PTR307 utilizes a computerized pump to inject the recoat material. The volume of materials dispensed from the automatic injector is controlled by hand through the top-mounted “Inject” button or programmed in to the machine using the tablet control. The PTR307B features a manual recoat injection system that needs an individual to manually distribute the recoat material in to the mold cavity; a replacement injector for the PTR307B recoater is available below. Please note the automatic injector is simply suitable for high-directory recoat material, while the manual injector works with each low- and- index recoat materials; they are both marketed individually below. Make sure you get in touch with Technology Support to learn more.
he manual injector can be installed to Optical Fiber Ribbon Machine through the 4-40 screws in the recoater real estate (see picture towards the right). Use a 3/32″ hex key to secure the injector prior to use. For connecting the PTRRRM to the recoater mold, tighten the connector after the green plastic material tubing, then loosen by way of a 1/4 consider permit rotation.
The injector comes with a distribution device as well as 2-position choice handle for directing the flow of recoat material. A knurled dispensing attach with the inner plunger works as a syringe for that recoat materials. To fill up the syringe, point the lever downwards (i.e., toward the recoat bottle), then rotate the knurled dispensing attach counterclockwise till it rotates freely to fill up the syringe (demonstrated within the photo towards the right). Then, to inject the recoat material into the mold, point the lever horizontally (i.e., facing the knurled attach) and spin the attach clockwise until close to the finish from the travel range is achieved. Avoid bottoming out your dispenser since this kqkbws harm the interior plunger; also take care when re-interesting the threads to avoid go across threading the dispensing screw. A number of fill/inject steps may be needed until air is displaced in the system. Use camera lens cells and an acetone or alcoholic beverages cleaning solution to accumulate any excess recoat materials that runs from the mold.
