Fiber Optic Connector Cleaning Procedure

Cleaning fiber optic connectors is a critical procedure. Wiping the connector end on your shirt won't do. Neither will wiping it with an alcohol swab. Compressed air only stirs up dust. Only strictly followed appropriate procedures will ensure reliable connections. Photographs illustrate how it's done. Your company's reputation is at stake.

Here, the fiber optic connedtor is shown being inspected with the use of a specially designed scope. Note that it is critical to measure the power in the fiber optic cable before using the scope. Improper procedures can result in eye damage. Click on the images for a more detailed view.
