Optical Fiber Cable Tensile Testing Machine - Indoor Cable

IEC-60794-1-2 Method E1


Torontech's Tensile & Crush Series (for Bow Type Cables) series of Optical Cable Testing machines are designed specifically for indoor optical cables to apply tensile force on indoor optical cables; it also has an extensometer to measure the cable elongation for optical cable under tension.

In Tensile test cable sample is wound over the approximate sized sheave, pulled at a specific rate until a pre-determined tension is applied. The test cable is further laid to rest under tension as per detail specifications, and then the attenuation and fiber length are measured.
