Optical Fiber Cable Crush & Cut through Testing Machine

Crush (compression) as per IEC-60794-1-2 Method E3/E12


Torontech’s Optical Fiber Cable Crush & Cut through Testing Machine complies with employs an IEC-60794-1-2 Method E3/E12 to perform compression (Crush) test on optical cables.

Cable is laid to rest under compression as per detailed specifications, and then the attenuation of fiber optics is measured.

It employs servo-controlled system to apply compressive force on the cable in constant speed and maintains the compression force in specified period.

The plate is mounted on the bottom of moveable crosshead which allows a sample of cable to be crushed between a flat steel base plate and movable steel plate which applies the crushing force uniformly over the length of the sample.
