This automatic optical fiber tensile testing system is ideal for operator skill independent use in creation and laboratory settings. Two basic model designs allow the user to select between a set up for standard linear evidence testing with extra mandrels for rotary high power testing.
The linear edition is designed for production evidence screening with forces as much as 22 N. Motor-driven clamps with very carefully developed rubberized inserts be sure that the Fiber Coloring Machine is not damaged within the testing process while simultaneously eliminating the requirement for another air supply. Amounts of tugging force, tugging speed and hold time are automated and easily offered to the owner with the built-in LCD touch screen manage. Data from assessments can be stored and reached through the Universal serial bus port or Ethernet user interface.
Mandrels of the identical design like NYFORS’ optical fiber recoaters can be mounted on the proof tester in the rotary high power settings. The fiber is covered round the two mandrels which support it with a special clamping system. In this way greater loads can be applied on the fiber, enabling breaking up power tests below controlled conditions.
Adjustable clamp placement facilitates testing with all the greatest force amounts as well as screening of short fiber lengths. The lightweight and light weight style helps make the instrument simple to maneuver in a laboratory environment and also to integrate in a creation work table where space reaches a premium. The machine is really a compact and light-weight tool ideal for testing the potency of optical fibers up to 30 N. The equipment is created to fulfill all types of applications in which a power test has to be performed.
The equipment is made using the user in mind. The Optical Fiber Ribbon Machine is easily positioned in the carefully guided linear clamps, and also the testing begins automatically having a “One Touch” go button. The built in microprocessor controls all the essential guidelines including pulling force, tugging velocity and hold time. This enables for any completely controlled test each and every time.
The machine can be connected to an outside PC, which allows access to all programmable guidelines and settings. The machine is tailored to stand-on your own use or the incorporation into various subsystems. The device has an substantial capacity for signing and conserving details like pulling force, pulling velocity and fiber diameter and other guidelines.
Two recoat injector configurations are available. The PTR307 utilizes a computerized pump to inject the recoat materials. The amount of material dispensed from the automatic injector is controlled by hand through the top-mounted “Inject” button or programmed in to the machine making use of the tablet pc controller. The PTR307B includes a manual recoat shot system that will require an individual to personally distribute the recoat material into the mold cavity; another one injector for the PTR307B recoater is available below. Please note that the automatic injector is only compatible with higher-directory recoat material, while the manual injector works with both low- and- directory recoat material; both are sold individually below. Please contact Tech Assistance for more information.
he handbook injector can be installed to compatible SZ Stranding Line via the 4-40 screws on the recoater housing (see photo to the right). Utilize a 3/32″ hex key to secure the injector before 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 choose permit rotation.
The injector comes with a distribution valve as well as 2-place choice lever for directing the stream of recoat materials. A knurled dispensing screw with the internal plunger acts as a syringe for that recoat material. To fill up the syringe, point the lever downward (i.e., towards the recoat container), then spin the knurled dispensing screw 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 handle horizontally (i.e., dealing with the knurled screw) and spin the screw clockwise until close to the end from the travel range is reached. Steer clear of bottoming out iuwekk dispenser as this may harm the internal plunger; also be careful when re-interesting the threads to avoid cross threading the dispensing attach. Several fill/inject steps may be needed till air is displaced in the program. Use lens cells and an acetone or alcoholic beverages cleaning solution to accumulate any extra recoat material that runs from the mold.
