Fibre Cleaning

Today’s connector design and production techniques have eliminated most of the challenges to achieving core alignment and physical contact.
What remains challenging is maintaining a Pristine End-face. As a result, Contamination is the #1 source of troubleshooting in optical networks.

A single particle mated into the core of a fibre can cause significant back reflection, insertion loss and even equipment damage.

IEC Standard 61300-3-35 is a global common set of requirements for fibre optic connector end face quality designed to guarantee insertion loss and return loss performance. The Standard contains pass/fail requirements for inspection and analysis of the end face of an optical connector, specifying separate criteria for different types of connections (for example, SM-PC, SM-UPC, SM-APC, MM, and multi-fibre connectors).
