Why Does The Optical Fiber Fusion Splicer Need Discharge Correction?

Why Does The Optical Fiber Fusion Splicer Need Discharge Correction?

After the machine has been used for a period of time, do you feel that the quality of the fusion splicing seems to have deteriorated inexplicably. At this time, we need to do the discharge correction, so when do we generally need to do the discharge correction for our optical fiber fusion splicer? So why do you need to perform discharge correction?

What happens when the optical fiber fusion splicer needs to do discharge correction:

1. When the operating environment temperature, humidity, air pressure, etc. have great changes, it is most obvious when the season changes.

2. After the machine has been used for a period of time, the bubbles or loss of welding will appear continuously.

3. After cleaning and replacing the electrodes.

4. After the electrode rod is used for many times.

5.The machine has not been used for a long time

Why do discharge correction and what role it plays:

The external environment is constantly changing, such as temperature, humidity, air pressure, etc. At this time, the temperature of the discharge will also change to a certain extent, and the inside of the optical fiber fusion splicer will change. There is a sensor that can accurately feedback the external changes to the system, so as to adjust the discharge intensity in a targeted manner, so that the discharge of the machine can adapt to the environment at that time, so as to achieve the best discharge welding effect.

Moreover, when the machine is in use, the electrode rod will continue to wear and tear, and the adhesion of fiber debris will also change the discharge intensity of the machine, which cannot be automatically corrected. And we all know that the optical fiber will move up, down, left and right to align the optical fiber before fusion splicing. This will also cause a slight deviation of the discharge center relative to the position of the optical fiber fusion, which cannot be automatically corrected. At this time, the discharge correction can be automatically calibrated to restore the machine to the standard state.

Simply put, why do discharge corrections? Because in the use of the optical fiber fusion splicer, whether it is external environmental factors or internal loss accumulation, it will have a slight impact on the fusion splicing of the machine. We can achieve low loss and more stable optical fiber fusion through discharge correction.

In order to get a better welding effect, it is recommended to do a discharge correction at intervals of a certain period of time. Generally, there will be a program option for discharge correction in the machine menu. The operation is simple and the time is short. It is the simplest little knowledge of machine maintenance!
