Optical Fiber Cable Impact Testing Machine is intended to determine the ability of optical fiber cable withstand impact.
The apparatus allows a hammer with a 25mm rounded edge to drop vertically on a cable sample fixed on a flat steel plate. The apparatus may allow a single or multiple repeated impacts to be imparted on the cable sample.
The energy of the impact is determined by the drop height and by the weight of the hammer.
The sample is a representative cable length sufficient to carry out the specified test.
