Reason to replace the electrode

Fujikura recommend to replace the electrode, because worn electrode result in larger splice loss since bad fusing condition.

Timing or Frequency to replace the electrode

Recommend to replace = 1,500 after times fusing.

Please replace electrode, when…
1.“Replace the electrodes” on monitor.
2.    Fusing position moves from side to side unstably, or becomes dark or too bright during fusing.
3.“Too left error” or “Too right error” on monitor.

Necessary Item

Procedure

1. Turn on the splicer power.

2. Press the [Menu] Icon in [Ready] state on the monitor. Then press the maintenance Icon on the main menu. And then press the Replace Electrode icon on Maintenance Menu.

3.  The Press the [OK] Icon in menu to turn off the splicer power. When turning off the splicer power, do not press the power switch. If you turn off the splicer power by pressing the power switch, the splicer does not instruct to replace the electrodes.

4. Open the wind protector by the hand. And loosen the electrode fixture nob by finger. And remove the both electrodes from the splicer.

5. Attach the electrodes and tighten the electrode fixture nob by finger. Be careful not to hit any parts and bend the electrode tips.

If the electrodes are not properly attached to the splicer, the tips of the electrode rods will shift.

           OK

           NG

If the electrode is not installed in the splicer properly it will be lifted up and higher than the electrode which is installed properly.

           OK

           NG

6. Turn on the splicer power. When the power-on sequence is complete, the Stabilize Electrodes menu is displayed on the monitor.
