The laser beams of the optical interface board or inside the optical fiber may cause damage to the eyes. Do not expose your eyes to the laser beams.
The safe use of optical fibers ensures proper running of the device and prevents personal injuries and device damage.
The fibre connectors and optical fibre interfaces of a laser must be cleaned with the special tools and the materials that are listed:
The special cleaning solvent, isoamylol, is preferred. Propyl alcohol is the next best solvent. Other alcohols and formalin are forbidden.
Non-woven lens tissue
Special compressed gas
Cotton stick (medical cotton or long fibre cotton)
Special magnifier for optical connectors
When replacing a fibre, cap the connector of a fibre that is not used. Avoid bending or wrapping fibers around narrow or sharp objects.
