Before and after every activity with an optical connector, it should be cleaned. This will prevent damage to the fiber end faces. We recommend that you use a One-Click Cleaner (OCC A / OCC B) or the AFL Cletop cleaning tape, for example.
Dirty plugs not only reduce the transmission performance, but can also permanently damage the optical fiber. After cleaning, you can use a fiber optic microscope to examine the connector end faces for dirt and damage.
The automated pass / fail tests of the microscopes from VIAVI enable a uniform assurance of the connector quality.
Dirty or defective plugs are the main cause of problems in optical networks. With the fiber microscope you can get this challenge under control and assess the quality of fiber ends at transitions. The P5000i USB microscope can be used with VIAVI measuring devices as well as with smartphones, tablets and PCs.
