Since optical fiber is nonconductive, it is charged easily by the friction or separation in the transfer line. When charged fiber is wound, the winding becomes disordered due to the repulsion between fibers.
Disorderly wound fiber may get entangled during unwinding, which causes damage to the fiber or stoppage of the equipment.
Conventional static eliminator
- The static elimination speed is insufficient.
- The static elimination status is not clear.
Countermeasures with static eliminators (ionizers)
An ionizer enables effective static electricity elimination while visualizing the effects. This improves product quality and prevents improper bobbin winding.
Disposal cost: $10,000/year
In addition, there are other resulting effects such as improved levels of trust.
