Blown Fibre Unit                                                                       Printer Friendly Version

accelair logoThe C-1800 Fibre Blowing Machine (Accelair 2) has
been developed to provide a simple to use and reliable fibre blowing solution. The Accelair 2 is designed to fit a fibre range from 1 to 3mm diameter, thereby providing the complete range of blown fibre installation solutions from one machine.

The Accelair 2 is a compact integrated fibre blowing
machine benefiting from full automation and fibre
management; sophisticated fibre protection is implemented to ensure the fibre mechanical and optical integrity is maintained. The machine only requires a single 24V D.C. electrical supply and compressed air to operate.

Configuration and Accessories

What is fibre blowing?
Fibre blowing is a technique pioneered by British Telecom for blowing small bundles of fibres into small tubes that can be placed around a building. Fibres can be easily blown into the tubes. Since these fibres can at any time be quickly blown out of the tubes if required, upgrading is easy. For example, an unknown multimode fiber is simple to upgrade an OM3 multimode or an OS1 single-mode fibre. This flexibility and opportunity for easy upgrading has made blown fibre installation the method of choice for many buildings. Blown fibre is also attractive for fibre-to-the-home, or FTTH, projects where the tube can be installed and allow easy fibre installation with minimal disruption at a later date.

Air Stop End Kit
This device blocks the far end of the tube while allowing air to escape, this in turn enables the Accelair to detect when the fibre has reached the end of its installation

Air Flowmeter
Attached to the end of the tube, this indicates the airflow exiting the installation route giving an indication of tube integrity and complexity. As a general rule if you get 16-18 l/min or more of air exiting the tube the Accelair will install the fibre.

6A Petrol Blown Fibre Compressor

The 6A Blown Fibre Compressor is designed to deliver clean dry air for installation of optical
fibres using the blown fibre technique. Model 6A blown fibre compressor is a portable,
petrol engine driven rotary vane compressor unit Producing 200 l/min of pulse free, treated
compressed air at a working pressure of 10 bar, it provides the ideal source for field installation of fibre optic cable.

An extremely reliable Honda GX240QX OHV Petrol Engine provides power for the compressor. The unit incorporates a 12Vdc air cooled aftercooler reducing the compressed air temperature to within 2° C of ambient. A 3 stage filtration system provides technically oil free air. A membrane dryer system complete with a balanced by pass. This reduces moisture levels to prevent problems in the blowing operation without drying the air to an extent where static electricity is generated.

The unit is available with an optional 24Vdc outlet socket for supplying the blowing head (other voltages available on request).
