Camplex Introduces Fiber Optic Cable Cleaning Tools

Camplex has introduced a new line of fiber optic cleaning tools to protect fiber optic cable and connections from dirt and debris that can endanger efficiency.

Camplex said fiber cables require cleaning every time they are inserted into a device’s outputs or inputs. Failure to clean the contacts can damage the unit’s optics over time and render the cable and the device useless, the company said.

Camplex offers many cleaning and testing products, including kits, to extend the life cycle of fiber optic cables such as the Camplex OPTIEYE, a fiber cleaning accessory for opticalCON connectors.
