The cleanliness of FO connectors is critical for satisfactory optical performance and long-term trouble-free transmission. Connectors that are dirty, worn or scratched due to improper use will have a negative effect on optical performance because the Insertion Loss (IL) increases whilst the Return Loss (RL) falls.

This topic is so important that it has found its way into all FO-related cabling standards. The standards point out that professional cleaning tools are necessary to ensure successful acceptance tests and trouble-free patching.
For professional on-site cleaning of FO connectors (e.g. MPO/MTP®) the equipment as featured in Datwyler´s FO accessories portfolio (see below) is particularly suitable.

MTP® is a registered brand of US Conec.
