Linear Tensile Tester for Optical Fiber
Jan 2013
3SAE Technologies Inc.Request Info
FRANKLIN, Tenn., Jan. 23, 2013 — 3SAE Technologies’ linear tensile tester is an automated proof tester designed for optical fibers with cladding diameters ranging from 80 to 400 μm. The unit’s fiber clamps accommodate coatings up to 1000 μm in diameter.

The compact and portable linear-style proof tester incorporates easy, single-button fiber loading and an automated tension test process to deliver testing speed and accuracy in laboratory and production environments. Its built-in LCD reports the “pass” result and the maximum tension (in Newtons or thousand pounds per square inch) applied to the fiber during the tension test. The tester also can perform destructive testing by pulling up to 50 N and displaying the maximum achieved tension.

Its LCD and keypad enable stand-alone operation and provide the operator with up to 10 user-selectable and -customizable tension programs, each with discrete settings to control key process variables, including clamp pressure, maximum tension, tension rate and proof test hold times.

The tester includes a universal AC to 12-VDC power supply and requires no additional external connections such as air for operation or a PC for configuration. An RS-232 port enables updating of the firmware and supports data collection from any appropriately configured computer.
