This automatic optical fiber tensile testing system is designed for operator skill independent use within creation and laboratory settings. Two fundamental model configurations allow the user to select between a set up for regular linear evidence testing with additional mandrels for rotary high strength testing.
The linear version is made for creation proof testing with forces up to 22 N. Motor-driven clamps with carefully developed rubberized inserts be sure that the Fiber Coloring Machine is not really damaged inside the testing process while at the same time eliminating the need for another air provide. Degrees of tugging force, pulling speed and hold time are programmable and conveniently offered to the owner through the built-in LCD touch screen control. Information from tests can be stored and accessed via the Universal serial bus dock or Ethernet interface.
Mandrels the exact same style as in NYFORS’ optical fiber recoaters can be mounted on the proof tester in the rotary high power settings. The fiber is covered around the two mandrels which assistance it with a unique clamping system. This way higher loads can be used on the fiber, enabling breaking up power assessments below managed conditions.
Adjustable clamp placement facilitates screening with all the highest force levels as well as screening of short fiber lengths. The lightweight and light bodyweight style helps make the tool easy to move around in a lab atmosphere and to incorporate in a production work bench where space is at reduced. The machine is actually a compact and light-weight tool ideal for testing the strength of optical fibers up to 30 N. The machine is developed to fulfill all kinds of programs in which a strength check has to be carried out.
The equipment was created with all the consumer in mind. The SZ Stranding Line is readily positioned in the carefully guided linear clamps, and the testing starts instantly with a “One Touch” go switch. The built-in microprocessor controls all of the essential parameters like tugging force, pulling velocity and hold time. This allows to get a totally managed check each and every time.
The machine can be attached to an outside PC, which enables use of all automated guidelines and settings. The device is adapted to stand-alone use or to the incorporation into different subsystems. The device comes with an substantial capability of signing and conserving details including tugging force, pulling velocity and fiber diameter along with other parameters.
Two recoat injector configurations are available. The PTR307 uses an automated pump to inject the recoat material. The quantity of materials dispensed by the automated injector is controlled by hand through the top-mounted “Inject” switch or programmed in to the device using the tablet pc controller. The PTR307B features a handbook recoat injection program that will require the user to manually distribute the recoat material in to the mold cavity; another one injector for your PTR307B recoater can be obtained below. Make sure you note the automatic injector is simply compatible with high-index recoat material, while the handbook injector is compatible with both low- and high- index recoat materials; they are both sold individually listed below. Please get in touch with Tech Support for additional information.
he manual injector can be installed to suitable Sheathing Line using the 4-40 screws on the recoater real estate (see picture to the right). Utilize a 3/32″ hex key to secure the injector before use. To connect the PTRRRM towards the recoater mold, tighten up the connector at the end of the green plastic tubing, then loosen by a 1/4 consider allow for rotation.
The injector is equipped with a syndication valve as well as 2-position choice lever for directing the flow of recoat materials. A knurled dispensing screw with an internal plunger acts as a syringe for that recoat material. To fill up the syringe, point the handle downward (i.e., toward the recoat bottle), then rotate the knurled dispensing attach counterclockwise till it spins easily to fill up the syringe (demonstrated in the photo towards the right). Then, to inject the recoat material into the mold, point the lever horizontally (i.e., dealing with the knurled screw) and rotate the screw clockwise until nearby the end in the travel range is achieved. Steer clear of bottoming out iuwekk dispenser since this may harm the inner plunger; also be mindful when re-interesting the threads to prevent cross threading the dispensing attach. Several fill/inject steps may be needed till air is displaced in the system. Use lens tissue plus an acetone or alcohol cleansing solution to collect any extra recoat materials that runs from the mold.
