Optical Connector Cleaning Tools

Optical connector endface is easily contaminated, and when contaminants adhere to the optical fiber core, there is a high chance of transmission quality deterioration. This is why it is essential to clean fiber endface before making a connection. Optical connector cleaners from NTT Advanced Technology Corporation use fiber developed specifically for optical connectors, so even the smallest contaminants not visible to the naked eye are removed.
