Daily Maintenance Of Optical Fiber Fusion Splicer - Cleaning V-groove

The optical fiber fusion splicer is a good helper in our work. It is a precision instrument. After daily work, cleaning and maintenance should also be done well, so that the machine can be kept in the best condition. Today, I will tell you how to clean the V-groove.
First of all, we need to clarify what a V-shaped groove is and why it is necessary to clean the V-shaped groove. During the fusion splicing process of the optical fiber, the optical fiber should be placed stably at both ends of the electrode rod, carrying a V-shaped groove object on the left and right sides of the optical fiber. V-groove. If there are contaminants in the V-groove, the optical fiber will deviate from the normal position on the fusion image due to alignment, resulting in improper alignment, which will cause the fusion loss to be too large, and the deviation distance will be too large for a long time.
Therefore, after the optical fiber fusion splicer works, the V-groove should be checked and cleaned regularly. The specific process is as follows:

(1) Open the windproof cover of the fusion splicer.
(2) Clean the contaminants on the V-groove for the first time with the provided dust blower.
(3) Use a thin blade or optical fiber directly, dip in alcohol, and rub the V-groove gently and repeatedly to thoroughly clean the interior.
(4) After cleaning, perform discharge calibration to restore the machine to the aligned discharge state. After successful calibration, all cleaning steps are completed.

Note: During cleaning, do not touch the electrode rod, so as not to affect the discharge effect of the electrode; do not use excessive force when cleaning, and you can repeatedly ensure that the cleaning is in place to avoid damage to the V-shaped groove and cause it to not be used normally.
