Have you ever been troubled by the continuous decline of its parameters, splicing quality and the inability to determine the appropriate ARC value when splicing?01Why do discharge calibrationAtmosphere like temperature, humidity, air pressure are always changing. This makes the discharging temperature change as well. The machine is equipped with temperature and air pressure sensor which can give feedback to the control system to adjust the discharge intensity to maintain a steady state. Automatic calibration is not suitable for changes caused by the wear of motors and fiber trash adhesion, and the center position of discharging sometimes moves to the left or right. In this condition, the fiber will be shifted relative to the discharge center, ARC calibration will be needed.The ARC adjust judges the discharge intensity according to the axial deviation before and after the discharge of the splicing part, and automatically corrects it to the standard intensity, so as to achieve low loss and stable fiber splicing.Attention: Discharge calibration changes the internal condition parameter not the discharging strength in splicing mode.02Under what circumstances do ARC adjust needed:① When the temperature, humidity, and air pressure of the operating environment change significantly;② Continuous splicing failure or high loss;③ Excessive use of electrodes;④ After cleaning or replacing the electrode;⑤The fusion splicer has not been used for a long time.Note: It is recommended to perform discharge calibration for fusion splicing 125um fiber for about 300 times and 400um fiber splicing for about 50 times.03How to perform discharge calibration:Prepare materials: fiber cleaver, stripper, alcohol, cotton swab, fiber, cotton cloth, etc.Operations:lSelect [ARC calibration] in [system maintenance], display the calibration image.lPrepare the fiber into fusion splicer, press [set] to start calibration until it shows “completion”, or cleaving the fiber and do it again, don’t exit the discharging calibration page.Attention: ①ARC calibration should be performed for several times until success.②The fiber type and fiber cladding length on the left and right sides must be same.04In order to get better and more stable splicing results, it is recommended to do the above calibration frequently and spend a short time to perform the ARC adjust, which can obtain high-quality and stable splicing results, and can achieve twice the result with half the effort and improve work efficiency. Why not do it!
In winter, the weather is cold, and the temperature difference between indoor and outdoor is big, especially in the northern region with the heating system on, the temperature difference is much bigger, and condensate water is easy to be generated.Fusion splicer will also be affected by the change of weather environment. Light sensor at low temperature will frozen and condensed water or water mist will be generated on the lens surface. During fusion, the optical fiber imaging will be blurred, which will affect the system's judgment of the position of the optical fiber, resulting in unable to align the optical fiber nor conduct optical fiber fusion operationThen use a clean cotton swab to wipe the water mist on lens. After wiping, turn on the fusion splicer and wait for the water mist evaporates. When the optical fiber images are clear, then the optical fiber fusion can be carried out.In addition to weather conditions, optical fiber imaging could be also affected by the dirty substance or the dust on the lens. The more sufficient preparation before working, the easier the fusion in the later period. Nowadays, most areas enter into cold weather, in order to ensure the efficiency of fusion, to avoid big temperature difference resulting in optical fiber imaging blurring which will result in fiber tracking failure, wiping the lens surface in advance and performing ARC Calibration will be more efficient.
Tumtec owns different kinds of fusion splicer, covering long distance backbone fusion machine (core to core with six motors), trunk core to core fusion machine, and specialized fusion machine for FTTH. Tumtec has developed into the industry benchmark of fusion machine & fiber cleavers and become a well-known professional manufacturer in China.Automatic optical fiber splicing machine is mainly used for optical communication, optical cable construction and maintenance. The main method is to melt the two optical fibers by sending an arc, and to realize the coupling of optical fiber mode field by using the collimation principle. Note: this optical fiber refers to each fiber in the optical cable. Optical fiber splicing electromechanical material is mainly used in the construction, line maintenance, emergency repair, production and testing of optical fiber devices and research teaching in research institutes of various operators, engineering companies, enterprises and institutions.Automatic optical fiber fusion machine is mainly used for optical communication in the construction and maintenance of optical cable, so it is also called optical cable splicing machine. The general working principle of automatic optical fiber fusion machine is to fuse two optical fiber sections by high-voltage arc, and then use high-precision motion mechanism to gently advance the fusion of two optical fiber into one, so as to realize the coupling of optical fiber mode field. Common optical fiber fuison machine is generally refers to the single-core optical fiber splicing machine, in addition, there are specially used for splicing belt optical fiber fusion machine, welding leather cable and jumper cable skin line fusion machine, and fusion poly-maintaining fiber poly-maintaining fiber fusion machine.According to the different alignment mode, the automatic fiber fusion machine can also be divided into two categories: cladding alignment type and fiber core alignment type. Cladding alignment type is mainly applicable to the low requirements of optical fiber into the home and other occasions, so the price is relatively low; Fiber core alignment type fiber fusion machine is equipped with precision six motor core alignment mechanism, fiber fusion electromechanical rod material, specially designed optical lens and software algorithm, which can accurately identify the type of fiber and automatically select the matching fusion mode to ensure the quality of fusion, high technical content, so the price is relatively high.At present, the fiber optic splicing machine used by telecom operators is used for long-distance trunk lines. Generally, optical cable laying is more than 100km long.Tumtec brand has long distance trunk six motor V9+, v9mini; FTTH is mainly leather wire splicing machine, tumtec fiber splicing machine has FST-18S, FST-18H which are also a good choice.The connection of automatic optical fiber splicing machine is an important process in optical fiber transmission system with large engineering amount and complex technical requirements. Its quality directly affects the transmission quality and reliability of optical fiber lines. It is extremely important to carry out effective methods and correct splicing procedures.There are three kinds of splicing methods of automatic optical fiber splicing machine, such as splicing, movable connection, optical fiber splicing, electromechanical material and mechanical connection. In practical engineering, splicing method is basically adopted, because splicing method has low node loss, large reflection loss and high reliability.If you want to know more about fiber optic welding machine, please consult us!Tumtec is one of the most complete kinds of fusion splicer manufacturer and splicing machine supplier,and has developed into the industry benchmark of fusion splicer & fiber cleavers and become a well-known professional manufacturer in China.Tumtec provides you with five exclusive services :24-hour online answer to technical, questions exclusive pre-sales consulting, in-sales training, after-sales maintenance service, three-year warranty service; all-round supporting professional service personnel to provide product consulting, product training, technical support.
Wuhan OVC ExpoThe Wuhan OVC Expo is a large-scale and influential annual grand event for the Optoelectronic industry, covering hot topics such as optical communications, 5G communications, precision optics, photoelectric sensors, new materials, etc. It is an excellent platform for many optoelectronic companies for expand market, promote brand and display new product.
