Research has shown over 85% of fiber optic network failures in data centers, campus, and other optical communication facilities are caused by contamination on the optical connector end face.
For best optical performance, it is imperative that all optical fiber connections are clean and free of contaminants. Fiber optic cleaning products is being highly recommended as a kind of very important tool for electrical manufactures. One of the most basic and important procedures for the maintenance of fiber optic systems is to clean the fiber optic equipment.
XC's fiber optic connector cleaner is designed to effectively and quickly clean connector endfaces, both the unmated patchcord and through the adapter. It cleans the ferrule end faces removing dust, oil, and other debris without nicking or scratching the end face. FOPC-302 is very easy to use and suitable for SC/ST/FC connectors.

Fiber Optic Products Maintenance
Fiber Optic Connector Inspection Steps:
Clean:Clean the end face of all components in each mated pair to avoid contamination before connection.
Inspect:Inspect each mated pair with a Fiber Inspection Microscope to verify end face cleanliness. If contamination is present, re-clean and re-inspect each mated pair. (Warning: Invisible laser radiation might be emitted from disconnected fibers or connectors. Do not stare into beams or view directly with optical instruments.)
Connect:Make each connection immediately after successful visual inspection of the mated pair.
RE-Clean:If you disconnect the connections, please re-clean and re-inspect all components before you connect.
