Ultrasonic cleaning has long been the preferred means of cleaning optical fibers for critical application splicing. However, previous ultrasonic technology was designed for cleaning larger objects, and the results were sometimes not optimum for fiber.
The 3SAE Ultrasonic Cleaner is a purpose-built ultrasonic fiber cleaner that was designed specifically for fiber splicing applications. Many years of splicing experience went into the functional, ergonomic design that ensures consistent cleaning results and easy fiber loading.
Operation of the 3SAE Ultrasonic Cleaner is easy and intuitive. The Ultrasonic Cleaner fiber holder rail can be configured to accommodate Fitel, Fujikura, Ericsson or 3SAE fiber holders. To operate, simply lower the fiber holder down the rail and press the start button. Audible and visual indicators indicate when the fiber should be removed. Additionally, the unit is designed to dip fibers in the ultrasonic bath without the use of fiber holders.
The intensity of cleaning can be adjusted to optimize results for different fiber types and sizes. Programmable presets can be provided for special applications.
3SAE's complete line of preparation tools, including the 3SAE Ultrasonic Cleaners, are configurable for use with Fitel, Fujikura, 3SAE or Ericsson fiber holders. Use of fiber holders provides a repeatable handling process across strip, clean, cleave and splice equipment for high strength splicing and improved yield.
3SAE's complete line of fiber holder compatible preparation tools incorporates the 3SAE Thermal Stripper, 3SAE Ultrasonic Cleaner, and 3SAE fiber cleavers.
