1.01 This procedure contains all the necessary information required to unpack, setup and use the Type-63 Mass Fusion Splicer for creating low-loss optical fiber splices in the field. 'The Type­ 63 can be used to splice multi fiber ribbons of up to 12 fibers and single optical fibers with a cladding diameter of 125 !-lm. Factory or field constructed ribbons with a coating diameter and fiber pitch of250 !-lm are applicable.

=

Note: Before using the fusion splicer in the field for the first time, read this procedure in it's entirety and perform a few trial splices under controlled conditions. 1.02

The Type-63 is designed to splice a variety of optical fiber types including: ./ Singlemode (SMF) ./ Multimode (MMF) ./ Dispersion Shifted (DSF)

The acceptable cleave length is 10 !-lm. Identical 12 Count ribbon fiber splices require less than 42 seconds, and average splice losses are typically 0.05 dB or less. 1.03 Two CCD cameras allow the user to examine fiber alignment from two perspectives (X view and Y view), ensuring optimum fiber placement prior to splicing. When the AUTOMATIC MODE is selected the precision motors automatically position the fibers at the optimal distance for pre-fusing, and control the amount of fiber overlap during the splice operation. After splicing, the splicer automatically calculates an estimated splice loss for individual fibers based upon inspection data obtained before and after fusion. A proof test can then be performed to verify the strength and physical integrity of the splice. A shrinkable reinforcing sleeve is then applied and shrunk in the built-in heater to protect the completed splice.

Operating Recommendations

1.4.1 Exercise care when packing, unpacking, and transporting the splicer unit. Severe

mechanical shock or excessive vibration may cause alignment problems.

1.4.2 If the splicer is to be powered by battery pack, ensure that the battery module is fully charged according to the procedures contained in Section 11 of Using the Battery Charger. A fully charged battery can power the splicer for approximately 20 ribbon splices including heating cycles and hot jacket remover operation 1.4.3 To ensure low-loss, quality splices, prepare the fibers first by cleaning it carefully and cleaving it as accurately as possible. A power meter or equivalent test is recommended for final verification of splice loss. 1.4.4 The fusion splicer is a precision instrument. For best results, keep the unit clean and

handle it with care.

1.4.5 Ensure the splicer is dry before operating it. Ifnecessary, dry the splicer with a hair dryer before operation. 1.4.6 When cleaving the fibers, do not allow the waste fibers to build up around the fusion splicer and cleaver. Account for each loose fiber, pick it up with cello-tape, wrap it, and dispose of it properly. 1.4.7 When transporting the fusion splicer, use it's padded transport case to protect it from dust dirt, moisture, shock, and impact. Q Note: Before starting each splicing session, perform an ARC TEST to ensure the proper arc

settings and optimum splice quality. 1.4.8 The ARC TEST will correct for fiber differences, environmental changes and electrode deterioration.

2.0 Safety Precautions 2.1 Handle glass fibers with care. They can easily puncture skin and break off. Wear safety' glasses at all times for protection from glass fibers. Dispose of the fibers properly. 2.2 Handle cleaners such as pure alcohol with extreme caution. Wear safety glasses when using alcohol to clean fibers. If alcohol splashes in the eyes, flush with cold water and seek medical attention immedi.ately.

/ WARNING: Do not use alcohol near heat,jlames, nor electric arcs, including the arc in the fusion splicer. 2.3 Do not use the fusion splicer in the presence of explosive gases. Gases can accumulate in poorly ventilated manholes and vaults. Always follow the recommended testing, purging, and ventilation procedures. 2.4 When using AC power use a grounded three-prong power source to protect against

accidental electrical shock.

2.5 Unplug the fusion splicer before attempting any electrical maintenance. Avoid contact with the high-voltage electrodes used to produce the arc. 2.6 Do not lubricate any part of the splicer. Oil based residues on the V-grooves, electrodes or fiber chucks will limit the effectiveness of the equipment. 2.7 Do not use compressed gas (i.e., canned air) to clean the splicer, as it will contaminate the V -grooves, electrodes. and optics. Poor splice performance may result. 2.8

Read any Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) for materials used in this procedure.

3.0 Reference Documents The fusion splicer requires additional tools used to prepare fiber for splicing. Please refer to manuals as provided for procedures regarding related fusion splicing accessories. Document Number SP-F03-202 SP-F03-103 SP-F03-104A ETK9326001 ETK9826010 MSDS

7.0 Operating Procedures 7.1

Splicing Steps Summary

7.1.1 This procedure assumes the cable has already been prepared and the fibers have been separated and cleaned. The following is a summary of the steps required to make a splice with the fusion splicer: • • • • • • • • • • • •

7.2

Turn the splicer on Plug in the heated jacket remover and allow to warm up for approximately 2 min. Check/set the fusion splicing program that matched fiber being spliced Put a reinforcing sleeved on the fiber Remove the fiber jacket Clean the bare fiber Cleave the fiber Insert the fibers into the splicer Start the automatic splice process Slide the reinforcing sleeve tube over the splice Reinforce the splice Remove the protected splice and store it.

Splice Mode Menu Functions

7.2.1 The SPLICE MODE menu is the screen the splicer will show when first turned on, or when the "RESET" key is pressed. This menu screen allows the fusion splicer to be set up to splice different types of fibers with various ribbon fiber counts or single fibers. Up to 21 arc condition programs (factory programmed) optimized for various splicing scenarios can be stored and recalled. Each program specifies five arc parameters namely: arc power, fusion duration, pre­ fusion time, arc gap, and overlap, to accommodate a variety of fiber types and splicing conditions; The programs are retained when the splicer is turned off.

,

Splice

• SPLICE (AUTO): Sets automatic fusion splicing, and loss estimation. • ARC TEST: 'Compensates for environmental changes by melting and measuring the fiber end faces to ensure proper arc power. Splice Condition • FIBER SELECT: Sets up the inspection software and arc condition for 1 of 21 fusion programs. Fiber types include SMF, MMF or Special. Each type includes 7 programs for splicing one of the following fiber counts; 12, 10, 8, 6, 4, 2 and 1 fiber(s).

8.0 Arc Test Procedure 8.1

When to perform an ARC Test

8.1.1 The fusion splicer has a built-in Arc Test function that should be used to ensure consistently high-quality splices. Situations that should prompt an arc test are: • Changing fiber types or count. • Changing splice location. • Initial splicing set-up • Use of splicer in extreme temperatures or humidity. • Poor splice performance • Wear on electrodes • Replacing or cleaning electrodes. 8.1.2 Performing an arc test automatically adjusts the arc power level for the splicing program selected, and will center the location of the fibers relative to the arc heat zone. The adjusted arc conditions are retained when splicer is turned off. 8.2

Performing an Arc Test

8.2.1 This test requires two pieces of scrap fiber of the same type as that being spliced. To perform an Arc Test, perform the following procedure. 1. Remove the coatings, clean. cleave, and insert the fibers as for a normal splice. See Section 7.5, for instructions on preparing the fibers for splicing. 2. Select a fusion program to match fiber type and count to be spliced. Refer, to Section 7.3 3. From the SPLICE MODE menu screen, move the cursor to ARC TEST, and press to begin the test as shown in Figure 21.

Figure 21 B. Performing an ARC Test

4. The splicer will automatically measure the amount of melt back as shown in Figure 21 b to determine if the power is correct. 5. If arc power was indicated to be "TOO WEAK" or "TOO STRONG", the splicer will

automatically self-adjust to the optimum level. Repeat the test until the words ARC OK appear. 6. When the words "ARC OK" appear the splicer will automatically reset and is ready to begin splicing.

9.0 Starting the Automatic Splice 9.1 This process assumes the splicing mode has been set, a fiber protection sleeve has been installed and both fibers have been inserted in the splicer. 1. With the hood closed, and the splicer in the "SPLICE MODE" menu screen, move the cursor to "SPLICE" as shown in Figure 22.

15.0 Troubleshooting • For fusion splicing technical support contact Sumitomo Electric at 1-800-358-7378 15.01

This section provides trouble-clearing information for the Type-63 fusion splicer.

15.1 Arc Problems 15.1.1 The electrodes typically need replacement after 1000 splices. Some common symptoms that indicate the electrodes need replacing are: • Fluttering or unstable arc observed on the LCD monitor • Sizzling noise while arcing • Bubbles in the fibers after splicing • Fiber burned in half • Diameter faults • High or inconsistent splice losses

15.1.2 Refer to Section 13.3 Replacing Electrodes for procedures. Always perform a burn-in routine after electrode replacement. Electrode problems can be caused by: • Heavily relying on the spattering arc to clean the fibers • Worn or pitted from excess use • Excessive dirt on electrodes • U sing canned air • Bent electrodes • Handling with bare fingers (skin oil) 15.1.2 Due to the critical nature of the electrode shape, electrode cleaning is not recommended. The use of solvents and other cleaning fluids on the electrodes will leave a residue that will degrade performance and shorten the life of the electrodes. 15.2 Fibers Breaking 15.2.1 f When the splicing process is complete a tensile strength may be applied to the fibers while in the fiber chucks. If the fibers are breaking when the tensile test is perfOlmed check the electrode arc conditions to determine ifthere is a problem leading to a weak fusion splice. Perform an ARC TEST. 15.3 15.3.1

Splicer Does Not Power Up If the fusion splicer fails to turn on when the ON button is pressed check the following: • Verify the power plug is seated properly • Verify the power source is supplying power by plugging another piece of equipment into the same outlet. • If using battery operation ensure the battery is fully charged.

15.4 Splicing Process Errors 15.4.1 While the automatic splicing process is being performed if an error occurs various process error messages may be displayed to prompt you of the faulty condition. For fiber inspection errors (offset, irregularity, gap error) it is possible to override the fault condition and continue with the splicing process. ' ~

Note: Overriding inspection errors may result in poor splices.

Cut (Cleave Angle) During the splicing process each individual fiber is examined for cleave quality. If a faulty condition is encountered the process will be stopped and the faulty fiber(s) will be indicated. To override the error and continue splice press ~~:!_ To cure faulty cleaves refer to operation manual provided with cleaver. Irregularity During the splicing process each group of fibers (left and right side) are examined to verify the distance between the longest and shortest cleaved fibers is within a specified limit. If a faulty condition is encountered the process will be stopoed and the faulty fiber(s) will be indicated. To override the error and continue the splice press SET Check for the following: • Fibers are seated in the fiber holders correctly • Fiber holders are inserted properly • Re-cleave the fibers. If problems persist refer it will be necessary to clean/make

adjustments to the fiber cleaver.

Alignment During the splicing process fibers are inspected to verify the offset between left and right fibers. If a faulty condition is encountered the process will be stopped and the faulty fiber(s) will be indicated. To override the error and continue the splice press SET Check for the following: • Clean the v-grooves • Clean the bare-fiber clamps • Make sure the fibers are clean. Re-cleave and clean fibers.

Gap During the splicing process the left and right fibers are inspected for the maximum difference between the largest and smallest gaps of two optical fiber end faces. If a faulty condition is encountered the process will be stopped and the faulty fiber( s) will be indicated. Press SET to override error and continue the splice. Check for the following: • Re-cleave the fibers. If problems persist it will be necessary to clean/make

adjustments to the fiber cleaver.
