4-General Safety Instructions

1Specular Reflection

There are often numerous secondary laser beams produced at various angles in the output port of the laser. These divergent beams are produced when the

primary beam of laser reflects off a smooth surface, and they are called specular reflections. Although these secondary beams may be less powerful than the

total power emitted from the primary beam, the intensity may be great enough to cause damage to the eyes and skin as well as surface of materials.

WARNING:

◎ You must exercise caution to avoid/minimize specular reflections as these laser radiations are invisible!

2Safety Instructions of Accessories

The photosensitive elements integrated in laser-related optical accessories may be damaged by laser exposure, such as video cameras, photomultiplier tubes,

and photodiodes. Attention should be paid to related device protection.

WARNING :

◎ The Maxphotonics MFSC laser light is strong enough to cut or weld metal, burn skin, clothing and paint. In addition, this light can ignite volatile substances

such as alcohol, gasoline, ether and other solvents. During the operating process, the flammable materials around the laser must be isolated.

Fiber Connector Inspection and Cleaning Guide

1-Notice

It is imperative that the fiber connector is checked for dust, dirt, or damage every time it is connected to any optical device, before use. The use of a

dirty or damaged fiber connector can result in serious injury and/or laser damage. Maxphotonics is not responsible for any damage due to contaminated

connectors.

For cleaning a fiber connector, you need the following materials:

1、Powder-free rubber gloves or fingerstall

2、Lint free optical cleaning wipes and/or swabs

3、Ahydrous ethanol (Optical level, pure >99.5%)

4、Acetone (Optical level, pure >99.5%)

5、Compressed air (oil free, water free)

6、Microscope

7、Light source

IMPORTANT :

◎ It is imperative that you wear powder-free rubber gloves during this cleaning procedure! It is hereby stated that damage to the fiber connector can occur

due to mishandling, the use of incorrect cleaning procedures, or chemicals for cleaning. This is not covered by the Maxphotonics’ warranty. Ahydrous ethanol

and acetone should be managed and stored according to the local law and instructions.

2-Operating Procedures

Clean and maintain the fiber laser according to the following procedures:

1、Switch off the laser power, and place the key switch on position of “OFF”

2、Remove the black outer protective sleeve and leave the white inner cap on and clean the fiber connector exterior with optical cleaner, wipe it with a clean

optical wipe and dry it with compressed air;

3、Place fiber connector in the holder of the microscope;(7-1)

4、Remove the protective inner cap from the connector;(7-2)

5、Focus the microscope onto the connector surface;

6、Use a light source to illuminate the face of the fiber connector so that the light is reflected off the surface of the endface. This is achieved if you see a

bright golden shine from the QBH connector endface.

7、Inspect the endface surface carefully. Contamination will lead to dark spots/burns on the surface and possibly damage to the fiber and/or laser. If

contamination is visible on the endface, cleaning is necessary.

8、Take out the cap and sleeve, then connect the fiber connector with the cutting head quickly and fasten them. (Place the cap face down on a clean surface 

or a lint-free wipe.)

7-1 Remove the fiber protective sleeve and protective film

7-2 Install the fiber connector under microscope

7-3 Cleaning protective lens with swabs

7-5 Endface may be damaged

IMPROTANT :

◎ Do not reuse a lint-free optical wipe or swab.

◎ Do not touch the protective lens of the fiber connector.

◎ Do not blow directly, or else new dirty will be brought.

◎ Do not touch the tip of the cleaning swab with your fingers.

◎ Cleaning is necessary before place the protective cover and sleeve.

◎ Never blow air directly at the surface, because you could imbed contaminants into the surface. Always blow across the surface!

◎ If the fiber connector could not be installed in optical system immediately, please cover it with the protective cap cleaned with compressed air.

CAUTION :

◎ It is hereby stated that damage to the fiber connector can occur due to mishandling, the use of incorrect cleaning procedures, or chemicals for cleaning.

This is not covered by the Maxphotonics’ warranty.
