Tip of the Week: Optical Connectors

Tip from Product Manager Brian Teague at Microcare Corporation:


The most effective way to clean your fibres for before fusion splicing or to clean the end face of your optical connectors is to always wipe in a single direction. Wiping in a single direction will help you avoid accidentally reapplying any contamination you just removed. If you wipe a connector end face using a FIGURE 8 motion or using a BACK AND FORTH motion, you risk accidentally reapply the contamination you just wiped off.
