1. Why Do You Need Fiber Optic Connector Ultrasonic Cleaner?
Since its development in the 1970s, fiber optic communication has revolutionized the way information is sent and received. The method is achieved by transmitting pulses of light down an optical fiber, which then forms a carrier waveform that is modulated to send a signal. Due to the narrow diameter of the fiber, fiber optic connectors must be cleaned in order to remain effective. A contaminated fiber connection may eventually cause failure of the component, and in some cases, the entire system. Even common microscopic debris such as dirt or dust can block optical signals from being transmitted. Additionally,certain particles can damage the glass surface, creating unnecessary downtime and costly servicing.
2. Common Debris Found on Connectors
Dust and Dirt: Dirt and dust are common contaminants found on connectors. Virtually unavoidable, dirt and dust can be can be spread airborne or by human touch.
Oil: Oil is often found on connectors as a result of contact with human skin. Human skin produces naturally occurring oils that will contaminate the connector if gloves are not worn. Additionally, if lubricants such as WD-40 are used, it will also cause contamination. Metallic Flakes: Fibers and connectors are often housed in plated metals. Even under normal usage, the plated metal may shed particles that can affect the connector. Furthermore, if the connector was wiped with a dry cloth, this will charge the connector, making it a magnet for the metal flakes.
3. Advantage of ultrasonic cleaner?
Cleaning Fiber Optics: Always Inspect
The sensitive nature of optical fibers requires accuracy and a structured system to be in place when it’s cleaned. Operators should always inspect the fiber optic connectors before beginning the cleaning process.
Reminders about inspection:
Turn off any laser sources before you begin inspection.
Do not look into a fiber when the system lasers are still turned on.
Disconnect cables at both ends.
Place a protective cap on unplugged fiber connectors.
Use a fiberscope to inspect the connector, bulkhead, or component.
Keep all unused protective caps and cleaning tools (swaps, lint cloths, etc.) in sterile containers that can be resealed.
Ultrasonic Cleaning: The Preferred Method
There are several options of cleaning fiber optics, including using lint free cotton swaps or compressed gas. However, when precision is required ultrasonic sonic cleaning has been the preferred method to wet-clean fiber optics. Advantageous for connectors in a fixed or in-house location, ultrasonic cleaning quickly and efficiently eliminates contaminates.
Combined with a cleaning solution (usually is propyl alcohol), fiber optic connectors are placed into the ultrasonic cleaner’s chamber along with its sleeve. The cleaner then uses a high ultrasound frequency to target dirt, oils, metallic particles, and other contaminates. The dirt and grime is then removed from the connectors and components without any damage or further contamination being done to them. Safe and cost-effective, many ultrasonic cleaners feature audible built-in timers and adjustable cleaning intensity levels, as well as temperature adjustment options.
