Cleaning MPOs

by | Fiber optics | 0 comments

MPO connectors should always be inspected with a scope before they are used, be that on a patch cord or a bulkhead. If they need to be cleaned, one-click cleaners are keyed to ensure the tip only fits one way onto the connectors  and is able to clean both male and female ends by either using or removing the adapter on the end. The cleaner works in the same way as the others used for single connectors, except this one has a woven lint free tape that cleans the connector end face. In a close-up of the back of the module in the video it can be seen the connectors are keyed and the male pins are just visible inside. The one click cleaner probe is keyed ensuring it will clean the fibers between the male pins, without leaving any contamination on them.
