TXP SIBS AND TRUNK CABLE CLEANING TOOLS, ACCESSORIES RECOMMENDED CLEANING PROCEDURES Prepared by M/T hw-escalation team, CS Org, Juniper Networks Material provided by Core Business Unit, Juniper Networks Feb 2012 V1.0 REQUIRED TOOLS Adhesive floor mats Powder free nitrile gloves Compressed air duster Dry cloth cleaning tool Cleaning tool adapter and connector Inspection micro-scope 99.9% Ultra Pure anhydrous Alcohol Lint free swabs Loopback adapter and connector NOTE: Personnel who performs cleaning task is expected to be trained beforehand as cleaning task requires special are and attention. You should not be cleaning on production TXP system for the first time. 2 Copyright © 2009 Juniper Networks, Inc. www.juniper.net TXP CLEANING ONLY WHEN NEEDED Every single fiber on SIBs and fiber-optic array cables shipped from Juniper manufacturing is cleaned completely. Prior to shipment, its cleaning result is recorded in Juniper’s internal database, and the bulk head on both SIBs and cables are dust-capped. Basically, without further cleaning, you can connect the fiber-optic array cable connector to the fiber-optic array port on the associated SIB. If an optical link is not functioning correctly, it’s recommended that you clean the fiber-optic array port and the fiber-optic array cable. 3 Copyright © 2009 Juniper Networks, Inc. www.juniper.net ADHESIVE FLOOR MATS In advance of cleaning task, the implementation of adhesive floor mats in areas on service aisles surrounding TXP systems. e.g.) Texwipe Adhesive Mats “AMA Series” of products http://www.texwipe.com/products/mats/default.aspx 4 Copyright © 2009 Juniper Networks, Inc. www.juniper.net POWDER FREE NITRILE GLOVES Personnel performing service activity on SIBs and trunk cables for TXP systems is suggested to wear nitrile gloves to eliminate opportunity of oil residue or dry skin from transferring to optical interfaces. e.g.) Uline Industrial Nitrile Gloves (Powder Free) http://www.uline.com/BL_973/Industrial-NitrileGloves?keywords=gloves 5 Copyright © 2009 Juniper Networks, Inc. www.juniper.net COMPRESSED AIR DUSTER Any equipment, tools, or part that can have a chance to approach to TXP SIBs and cables have to be blown up prior to any service activity. Compressed air duster can also help when you had to clean up fibers using alcohol as in other slides. e.g.) ITW Chemtronics Ultrajet All-way Duster http://www.chemtronics.com/products/product.asp?id=2 6 Copyright © 2009 Juniper Networks, Inc. www.juniper.net DRY CLOTH CLEANING TOOL This tool uses a dry cloth to remove dust and oil from the fiber optics. Dry cleaning tool is provided in the TX Matrix Plus tool kit. Do not use without cleaning tool adapter and connector because the these are keyed to ensure that the cleaning tip can be inserted in only one way and can clean up fiber most efficiently. e.g.) USCONEC IBC Brand Cleaner MPO (Part Number 7104) http://www.usconec.com/pages/products/cleaner/ibc/multifiber/ibcmultifr m.html 7 Copyright © 2009 Juniper Networks, Inc. www.juniper.net CLEANING TOOL ADAPTER AND CONNECTOR These tools are provided in the TX Matrix Plus tool kit. These are used by inserting to the fiber-optic array port or the fiber-optic cable prior to insertion of the dry cloth cleaning tips. e.g.) USCONEC IBC Brand Cleaners and adapters ADAPTER CIRCULAR 3x1 RECPT (Part Number 8802) ADAPTER CIRCULAR 3x1 CONN (Part Number 8803) http://www.usconec.com/pages/products/cleaner/ibc/multifiber/ibcmultifrm.html 8 Copyright © 2009 Juniper Networks, Inc. www.juniper.net INSPECTION MICROSCOPE In order to verify the cleanliness of fiber, it’s recommended to purchase microscope inspection kit. e.g.) JDSU Inspection Probe Master kit FBP-SD01 (or FBP-P5000) and the associated tips/knobs (FBPT-CMT, FBPT-MTP) http://www.jdsu.com/en-us/Test-and-Measurement/Products/a-zproduct-list/Pages/fiberchek2-p5000.aspx 9 Copyright © 2009 Juniper Networks, Inc. www.juniper.net 99.9% ULTRA PURE ANHYDROUS ALCOHOL, AND CLEANING PROCEDURE For persistent contamination that is hard to remove, it’s suggested that you use a hint of alcohol with lint free swabs in the next slide. First, dust-off MTP cable/SIB end-face using compressed air duster. A drop of anhydrous alcohol should be placed the optics face with lint free swabs. Swipe optics face with dry cloth cleaning tool while optics face is wet. And use inspection microscope to verify. Repeat these steps as needed. e.g.) 3M Novec fluid HFE-72DA http://solutions.3m.com/wps/portal/3M/en_US/GovernmentSolutions/Home/Pro ductInformation/Online_Catalog/?PC_7_RJH9U5230GO250IANS2O1A3I7100 0000_nid=BXC1PS4S8Pgs88LT96DT17gl5R9805309Gbl e.g.) Puretronics 99.9% Ultra Pure Anhydrous Alcohol http://www.puretronics.com/product/3100.html 10 Copyright © 2009 Juniper Networks, Inc. www.juniper.net LINT FREE SWABS For sticky contamination that is hard to remove, it’s suggested that you use a hint of alcohol with lint free swabs. Follow steps described in the previous slide (“99.9% ULTRA PURE ANHYDROUS ALCOHOL, AND CLEANING PROCEDURE”) e.g.) Texwipe TX757B http://www.texwipe.com/store/p-832-tx757b.aspx 11 Copyright © 2009 Juniper Networks, Inc. www.juniper.net LOOPBACK ADAPTER AND CONNECTOR To isolate the faulty domain, you can use the loopback adapter and connector that are provided in the TX Matrix Plus tool kit. If you suspect the link problem residing in SIB itself, you can put a loopback connector to fiber-optics array port on the SIB in question. A loopback adapter can be put to fiber-optics array cable in question. 12 Copyright © 2009 Juniper Networks, Inc. www.juniper.net Thank you!
