Inspection of patch panels and hardware devices
Dirt, dust and other contaminants are the enemy of high speed data transmission over optical fibre.
With today’s network applications requiring more bandwidth and loss budgets being tighter than ever before, it is imperative that all optical connections are clean and free of contaminants to ensure network operation.
- Using the latest Fluke testing and fault finding equipment we are able to diagnose fibre faults quickly and efficiently
- Video inspection of hardware, patch panels and patch leads.
Note : This is the only practical way to inspect most hardware devices and patch panels where disassembly is not a realistic option
- Cleaning of Dirt and contaminants with specialised Fluke and senko fibre cleaning products
Once contamination has been discovered using a fibre microscope, it is crucial that it be properly removed to avoid creating more problems. Proper cleaning products and procedures are a requirement as improper processes are not only ineffective, but also potentially damaging.
Effective fibre optic end-face cleaning involves two key components: specialised cleaning products and the knowledge to use them correctly.
After cleaning, always inspect the end-face again before insertion to guarantee all contaminants were removed.
It is equally important to inspect and clean both sides of any connection as contamination can migrate from one end-face to another upon insertion.
