FO cleaning tools

for satisfactory optical performance

1 Reel Cleaner 2 MPO/MTP® cleaning device
3 Connector cleaning device 4 Cleaning rod for adapter


The cleanliness of FO connectors is critical for satisfactory optical performance and long-term trouble-free transmission. Connectors that are dirty, worn or scratched due to improper use will have a negative effect on optical performance because the Insertion Loss (IL) increases whilst the Return Loss (RL) falls.

  • This topic is so important that it has found its way into all FO-related cabling standards. The standards point out that professional cleaning tools are necessary to ensure successful acceptance tests and trouble-free patching.
    For professional on-site cleaning of FO connectors (e.g. MPO/MTP®) the equipment as featured in Datwyler's FO accessories portfolio (see below) is particularly suitable.
