PTR-200 Series Fiber Recoaters and Proof Testers
PTR-200 is a family of manual to fully automated fiber recoaters and proof testers for high-volume optical fiber processing. Together our PTR-200 recoaters and proof testers ensure that stripped or fusion spliced fibers retain their original diameter, flexibility and long-term strength. PTR-200 is the most comprehensive and effective line of recoaters and proof testers on the market today.
PTR-200 recoaters restore the protective UV-cured acrylate or polyimide coating to a stripped fiber. The result is a recoated fiber section that is as smooth and flexible as the original fiber. In a proof-test mode (linear), PTR-200 proof testers apply a set load at a controlled rate to an optical fiber or fusion splice to assess the long-term reliability of the fiber. In a tension test mode (rotary), the load is taken up to the breaking strength of the fiber. This is an ideal method for process qualification in R&D. To accommodate a wide range of applications, we offer three types of PTR-200 recoaters (manual, extended-length manual or automatic) and two types of proof testers (rotary or linear).
