Applications in contaminated environments frequently require fibre optics. Connector technology, sealing, and cleanliness all play a major role in connector selection and interconnect performance in these environments. Dust, moisture, chemical exposure, oily films, and maintenance planning must be considered for any application. Appropriate connector selection is essential to assure adequate optical, environmental and mechanical performance. The ability to choose the best interconnect system and subsequent connector depends upon knowing and understanding the optical performance expectations, operating conditions, mechanical and environmental constraints, reliability requirements, and maintenance plans.
