MTP/MPO Connector Cleaning: One-Push Cleaner vs. Cassette Cleaner

With data centers moving to 40G/100G, MPO fiber cables are extensively deployed. To ensure the reliable and efficient performance of the MPO cables, it is critical to clean the MPO connectors before mating to other equipment as contaminated connectors would lead to degraded performance and costly but preventable failures. There are two ways to clean […]

Fiber Optic Cleaning and Inspection of Connectors & Adapters

Fiber optic cleaning is critical to the performance of optical communication networks. Contamination on a connector end face, even if only at the microscopic level, can create severe problems. Traditional single mode fiber optic core diameters are approximately 9 microns. By comparison, a human hair is 50 microns or larger in diameter. Contamination that blocks the […]
