With the rapid development and construction of 5G network, the optical communication industry has ushered in more opportunities.In the face of the wave of 5G construction, optical fiber, optical modules and optical devices have become "hot items", especially optical fiber. In the future, the use of optical fiber will be at least a few hundred million kilometers, which will become the "primary beneficiary."
In network maintenance, it is found that whether the optical fiber end face is clean or not directly affects the communication quality of optical network. However, in the daily construction of optical fiber network, due to non-standard operation or other reasons, the optical fiber end face is easy to be polluted.However, when a large amount of dirt and dirt is attached to the end face of the optical fiber, it will cause the attenuation of optical signal to increase, resulting in the failure of optical network, which will seriously cause the paralysis of the whole optical signal system.
How to check the fiber end-face?
Some old drivers in the optical communication industry check whether the end face is dirty or not by disconnecting the equipment, then holding the jumper wire to the light, and observing the light refraction brightness of the end face to distinguish whether the end face is clean or not. But this method, its feasibility is not high, first this situation is more applicable to optical communication system not full line normal working state, otherwise it will cause a large area of network failure; This situation exists many uncertain factors, not suitable for widespread use.
At present, there are many instruments on the market for optical fiber end face inspection, but the most commonly used ones are optical fiber microscope. There is also a kind of end face inspection instrument which can clearly display the end face condition through the LCD screen, and it is not necessary to disconnect the equipment when inspecting the end face. KomShine launches KFM-200 optical fiber microscope, KIP-600v optical fiber connector inspector and KIP-600p optical fiber end face detector.
Optical fiber detection-KIP-600v
KIP-600v fiber connector detector 3.5 inch HD LCD display，avoiding the visual fatigue of long time detection; real time video，support extend TF card, quick check the pollution degree of female connector and male connector. Resolution(μm)＜1μm，moreover, it is ergonomic in design and comfortable to hold. Its roller type focal ring can effectively magnify 400x, and its independent camera button provides users with a simple and clear operating experience.
Support multiple adapters-SC、FC、ST、LC；APC connector is optional.
According to the fiber interface to be tested, select the kip-600v fiber end face detector probe, insert the detector into the fiber interface, and then rotate the focus button to focus quickly. Then ZOOM button can be used to ZOOM in the image with one key, so as to clearly see whether the fiber end face is dirty or not through the screen.
Optical fiber detection-KFM-200
The amplification rates of 200 and 400 times are switched to each other；Imported coated lens, stain clearly visible; Supporting SC/FC/ST/LC connector, 1.25 mm & 2.5mm adapter; Grinded silica gel shell, anti-skid, anti-fall and anti-shock; Small size, one-handed, convenient and fast
Install the KFM-200
Insert the tested fiber connector
Adjust the focus until a clear observation point is found
How to effectively clean the optical fiber end face
①Use the optical fiber one-click cleaner-KOC-125/250
KOC-125 is suit for LC/MU（APC/UPC）and other 1.25mm; KOC-250 is suit for SC/ST/FC/E2000（APC/UPC） and other 2.5mm; Over 800+ engagements per unit; Audible CLICK to alert the operator when tools is fully engaged.
Before use, select the cleaning pen according to the interface to be tested;Insert the cleaning pen into the interface to be tested and press it forward. If you are worried about the poor cleaning effect, you can repeat the operation for 2 or 3 times.
②Cassette type optical fiber end face cleaning box- KCC550/660
Its cleaning mouth cover design is very intimate after using can be gently closed, to avoid the clean paper surface from secondary pollution. Generally, after using more than 500 times, the changeable clean core is more economical.If you are worried about the cleaning effect, you can use kfm-200 fiber microscope.
In order to make it easy for users to choose fiber end cleaning tools according to the actual situation, in addition to the above fiber cleaner,KomShine also has the FOCP fiber cleaning platform (also known as the fiber wiper) and FOCW fiber cleaning paper, etc.
