When cleaning the optical port

When cleaning the optical port (receptacle, ferrule end face behind the adapter), use the stick type CLETOPStick or NEOCLEAN-S, or the pen type NEOCLEAN-EZ or NEOCLEAN-E.
In the case of a stick, insert it into the hole of the adapter and turn the stick 2-3 times in one direction while pushing it lightly.
Pen type can be cleaned by simply inserting the tip into the hole of the adapter and pushing.

Precautions when cleaning the optical connector

Since laser light may adversely affect the human body and equipment, follow the instruction manual for the equipment when connecting or disconnecting the optical connector. Laser stop is common. In our verification, when a +18dBm (63mW) laser beam passes through, we have confirmed that the fiber melts when dirt on the optical connector crosses the core due to the wiping action of the cleaner.
