Maintaining Fiber-Optic Hybrid Connectors
The connector sections to be cleaned are the key parts, including the tips and sides of ferrules, the interior walls of alignment sleeves and the interior and exterior of connector shells. Note that scratches and particles of foreign matter on the tip of the ferrule can have a disabling effect on fiber-optic transmission.
The following procedures should be used when cleaning fiber-optic connectors.
- For plugs, the interior surfaces of alignment sleeves and the tips of ferrules are to be cleaned with the non-alcohol treated cleaning stick using a gentle stroking action.
- Canare FCFA and FCFRA enhance easy cleaning procedure for its innovative alignment sleeve and insulator detachable design.
- For jacks, it is important to clean both the tips and sides of the completely protruding ferrules with the cleaning stick.
- Both the male and female connector shells tend to attract dust and metal particles, so it is important to clean both the insides and outsides using cotton gauze or similar material.
