This automated optical fiber tensile testing system is made for operator skill independent use in creation and laboratory configurations. Two fundamental model configurations enable 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 production evidence testing with forces as much as 22 N. Motor-driven clamps with very carefully designed rubber inserts ensure that the fiber coating is not really damaged inside the testing procedure whilst at the same time eliminating the need for another air supply. Levels of pulling force, pulling speed and hold time are programmable and easily accessible to the operator from the built in Liquid crystal display touchscreen display manage. Information from assessments can be stored and reached using the USB port or Ethernet user interface.
Mandrels the exact same design as in NYFORS? optical fiber recoaters can easily be attached to the proof tester within the rotary higher power configuration. The fiber is covered around the two mandrels which assistance it with a special clamping mechanism. By doing this much higher lots can be applied onto the fiber, allowing breaking power tests below managed circumstances.
Adjustable clamp placement facilitates screening with the greatest force amounts as well as testing of brief fiber measures. The lightweight and light weight style helps make the instrument simple to maneuver within a lab atmosphere as well as integrate within a creation work bench where space are at reasonably limited. The machine is a compact and lightweight tool suitable for testing the potency of optical fibers as much as 30 N. The machine is developed to fulfill all kinds of applications where a strength test has to be carried out.
The machine was created with the user in mind. The secondary coating line is easily placed in the guided linear clamps, and also the testing begins instantly using a One Touch go switch. The built in microprocessor regulates each of the essential parameters including pulling force, pulling speed and hold time. This enables to get a totally managed test every time.
The machine can be linked to an external Computer, which enables use of all programmable guidelines and configurations. The machine is tailored to stand-on your own use or to the integration into various subsystems. The machine comes with an extensive capability of logging and saving information such as tugging force, pulling speed and fiber diameter along with other parameters.
Two recoat injector configurations can be found. The PTR307 uses an automated pump to inject the recoat material. The volume of materials dispensed through the automatic injector is controlled by hand through the top-installed “Inject” switch or programmed into the machine using the tablet pc control. The PTR307B includes a handbook recoat injection system that needs the consumer to manually distribute the recoat materials in to the mold cavity; a replacement injector for that PTR307B recoater is available below. Make sure you note that this automated injector is simply compatible with high-directory recoat materials, while the cable air wiper is compatible with both reduced- and- directory bpabim materials; both are sold individually listed below. Please get in touch with Tech Assistance for additional information.
he handbook injector can be mounted to compatible fiber recoaters via the 4-40 screws in the recoater real estate (see picture towards the right). Use a 3/32″ hex key to safe the injector before use. For connecting the PTRRRM towards the recoater mold, tighten the connector at the conclusion of the eco-friendly plastic tubing, then loosen by a 1/4 turn to enable rotation.
The injector comes with a syndication valve and 2-place selection handle for directing the stream of recoat material. A knurled dispensing screw with the internal plunger acts as a syringe for your recoat materials. To fill the syringe, point the lever downward (i.e., towards the recoat bottle), then spin the knurled dispensing attach counterclockwise till it spins freely to fill the syringe (demonstrated within the picture for the right). Then, to inject the recoat materials into the mold, point the lever horizontally (i.e., dealing with the knurled screw) and spin the screw clockwise until close to the finish from the journey range is achieved. Steer clear of bottoming out your dispenser as this may harm the interior plunger; also be careful when re-interesting the threads in order to avoid cross threading the dispensing screw. A number of fill/inject actions may be required until air is displaced within the system. Use lens cells plus an acetone or alcohol cleaning solution to collect any excess recoat materials that flows from your mold.
