Method Of Handling DOME Fiber Closure

The DOME Fiber Closure connector contains a very thin glass bundle, which makes the fiber very strong and at the same time very fine. Because of these properties, you should be very careful when handling cables.

Always wear gloves or finger cots when handling cables. This is to avoid the transfer of oil or dust particles that could damage the fiber or contaminate the fiber optic connector.

When choosing a device with fiber optics, fiber pigtails should not be used to pick up the device; you should always put the device and fiber connector together.

You should never allow knots to develop in fiber. If you notice the knot, you should carefully calculate the tangles. You should avoid pulling the cable as pulling the cable can cause the knot to tighten and may exceed the minimum bend radius, causing the cable to break.

Cleaning fiber

As a rule of thumb, you should always follow ESD precautions and approved fiber cleaning procedures. You should be aware that if you have just purchased a cable, you will need to clean it to get started.

When cleaning the bulkhead to match the adapter pair, first clean the adapter. Although the cleaning adapter is good, you don't need to do this if the adapter already uses a clean, defect-free fiber connector. If you always cover the lid when not in use, you should avoid cleaning it.

If the adapter is dirty, there are two ways to clean them: use compressed air and use a lint-free swab.

Compressed air method: You should keep away from the adapter and then release a small amount of compressed air to remove any dust particles that may be present in the nozzle. In order to achieve the desired results, you should use three or four short explosions.

Non-woven cotton swab method: You should gently press and turn the cotton swab to clean the surface of the ferrule. Once you have used a cotton swab, you should discard it; you should not reuse it.

Another important part of the fiber you need to clean is the fiber optic connector. To get the desired results, you should use a wet cotton swab. You should damp the cotton swab with alcohol and press it firmly against the tip of the ferrule. You should clean the ferrule until it is thoroughly clean. You should discard the cotton swab after you have finished.

To avoid damage to the fiber optic connector, 99% pure isopropanol should be used.
