Use and maintenance of optical fiber fusion splicer

Use and maintenance of optical fiber fusion splicer

Optical fiber fusion splicer is essential to the maintenance of equipment and optical fiber and cable engineering, can complete the singlemode, multimode, dispersion shifted, non zero dispersion shift fiber connection. The optical fiber splicer structure of precision, the price is expensive, there are many places that need attention in the daily use and maintenance process.
The optical fiber splicer should be placed in the carrying case special transport, transit to avoid the vibration, bump, flip. It is recommended to keep the box for long distance transportation.
Optical fiber fusion splicer is a high precision equipment, it for the use of the environment have requirements (in Japan Fujikura Ltd. FSM-50S single core optical fiber fusion splicer for example. The use of the environment: the elevation of the 0~5000 meters, temperature -10~50, humidity from 0 to 95% of non condensing). In daily use should be to avoid the operation in the harsh environment of the direct sunlight, rain, snow, cold, wind, or equipped with umbrellas, tents and other tools to protect equipment.
Optical fiber fusion splicer for general electric three, built-in battery, AC and DC power supply. In the use of small generators for power supply, should be equipped with a power supply, so as to avoid the impact of the current damage to the device’s high voltage. Welding machine equipped with a built-in battery is Ni MH battery, memory, if used improperly will reduce the battery capacity, in front of the charge should be the battery residual capacity, recommendations for welding machine provide the discharge function; if the battery is not in use for a long time, the battery is full of electricity and each month completely charge and discharge.
In the field construction, we should pay attention to do a good job cleaning. Ensure that the optical fiber fixture, mirror and V type of the groove of the clean, if there is dust or foreign body, can be used to clean water. Develop the habit of closing the cover of the wind and the wind, and the dust and the optical fiber can be avoided. General optical fiber fusion splicer provide auto start function, the closure of windproof cover machine automatically weld, it is recommended to disable this feature.
Optical precision cutting knife is an important part of the optical fiber fusion splicer, cutting quality is an important guarantee for fusion of the. In use to keep the fiber foot, V groove and cutting blades clean. That cutting quality decreased significantly, the rotary cutting knife to a knife, blade a lap later should be timely replacement blade.
Optical fiber fusion splicer will provide corresponding to different fibers of various melt grafting pattern should corresponds to optical fiber type selection of appropriate melting connection mode, non professional personnel do not modify the parameters of the model, so as not to affect the welding quality.
When the welding machine malfunction, with welding machine self-test function can be part of the problem or eliminate the problem to find the reasons, such as to resolve the problem is still not should be timely contact with the supplier, do not disassemble itself.
Each of the proposed to do a fusion splicer full maintenance, equipment of optical, mechanical transmission, electrode, battery, cutting knife, etc. each part do a comprehensive detection and maintenance.
