This automated optical fiber tensile testing program is designed for operator skill independent use in creation and laboratory settings. Two fundamental model designs allow the consumer to pick between a set up for standard linear evidence testing and with additional mandrels for rotary high strength testing.
The linear edition is made for production proof screening with forces as much as 22 N. Motorized clamps with very carefully developed rubber inserts be sure that the SZ Stranding Line will not be damaged in the testing process while concurrently getting rid of the need for an external air provide. Levels of tugging force, tugging speed and hold time are programmable and easily available to the owner with the built-in Liquid crystal display touch screen manage. Data from assessments can be saved and reached via the Universal serial bus dock or Ethernet user interface.
Mandrels the exact same style as in NYFORS’ optical fiber recoaters can be easily mounted on the evidence tester in the rotary high strength configuration. The fiber is wrapped round the two mandrels which assistance it having a special clamping system. In this way greater loads can be applied to the fiber, enabling breaking power assessments under controlled circumstances.
Adjustable clamp placement facilitates screening using the greatest force amounts as well as screening of short fiber measures. The compact and light weight style makes the instrument easy to maneuver in a laboratory environment and also to integrate in a creation work table where space reaches reduced. The machine is actually a lightweight and light-weight instrument suitable for screening the strength of optical fibers as much as 30 N. The machine is developed to meet all types of programs where a strength test needs to be carried out.
The device is designed with all the consumer in mind. The SZ Stranding Line is readily positioned in the carefully guided linear clamps, as well as the screening starts automatically using a “One Touch” go button. The built-in microprocessor controls all of the essential parameters including pulling force, tugging velocity and hold time. This enables to get a completely controlled test each time.
The device can be attached to an external PC, which allows usage of all programmable guidelines and configurations. The machine is tailored to stand-alone use or to the integration into various subsystems. The device posseses an extensive capacity for logging and saving details such as pulling force, pulling speed and fiber diameter as well as other parameters.
Two recoat injector designs can be purchased. The PTR307 uses an automated pump to inject the recoat materials. The volume of material dispensed from the automated injector is controlled by hand through the top-mounted “Inject” switch or programmed to the device making use of the tablet controller. The PTR307B features a handbook recoat shot program that requires the consumer to personally distribute the recoat material into the mold cavity; a replacement injector for your PTR307B recoater is available listed below. Make sure you note that the automatic injector is just compatible with high-index recoat materials, whilst the handbook injector is compatible with each low- and- index recoat material; they are both sold separately listed below. Make sure you contact Technology Assistance for additional information.
he handbook injector can be mounted to suitable Optical Fiber Ribbon Machine through the 4-40 screws on the recoater real estate (see photo towards the right). Use a 3/32″ hex key to safe the injector just before use. For connecting the PTRRRM for the recoater mold, tighten up the connector at the end of the green plastic material tubes, then release with a 1/4 choose allow for rotation.
The injector comes with a distribution valve and two-position selection handle for directing the stream of recoat material. A knurled dispensing attach with the internal plunger works as a syringe for the recoat material. To fill up the syringe, point the handle downward (i.e., toward the recoat container), then spin the knurled dispensing screw counterclockwise till it rotates freely to fill the syringe (shown in the picture to the right). Then, to inject the recoat material in to the mold, point the lever horizontally (i.e., facing the knurled attach) and rotate the attach clockwise till near the end from the journey range is reached. Avoid bottoming out iuwekk dispenser as this may harm the inner plunger; also be mindful when re-interesting the threads in order to avoid cross threading the dispensing attach. A number of fill up/inject steps may be needed until air is displaced in the system. Use lens cells as well as an acetone or alcoholic beverages cleaning solution to accumulate any extra recoat materials that runs from your mold.
