Linear tensile tester for optical fiber


Franklin, Tenn. - 3SAE Technologies’ new Linear Tensile Tester is an automated proof tester designed for optical fibers with cladding diameters ranging from 80 to 400 micron. In addition, the unit’s fiber clamps accommodate coatings up to 1000 micron in diameter. This proof tester enhances 3SAE Technologies' extensive line of fiber optic processing equipment.

3SAE will debut this linear tensile tester at Photonics West 2013 on February 5-7 in San Francisco, CA.

This compact linear-style proof tester incorporates easy, single-button fiber-loading and an automated tension test process to deliver testing speed and accuracy both in laboratory and production environments. Its built-in LCD reports the "pass" result and the maximum tension (in Newtons or Kpsi) applied to the fiber during the tension test. The 3SAE linear tensile tester can also perform destructive testing by pulling up to 50N and displaying the maximum achieved tension.

3SAE’s linear tensile tester features a built-in LCD and keypad to enable convenient stand-alone operation and provides the operator with up to 10 user-selectable and customizable tension programs, each with discreet settings to control key process variables including: clamp pressure, maximum tension, tension rate and proof test hold times. These features, in combination with the compact design, allow for extreme portability and flexibility in application.

The 3SAE linear tensile tester includes a universal AC-12V DC power supply and requires no additional external connections such as air for operation or a PC for configuration. An available RS-232 port provides the ability to update the firmware and supports data collection from any appropriately configured computer.
