If you are an installer, or planning an installation, of fiber optic cable-assemblies—-keep in mind the cost and pain that can be (and almost always IS) involved in re-cleaning a connector after installation.   Avoiding system testing delays, degradation of system performance, potential connector damage is worth the small investment of the simple preventive action of inspection during installation.   Having this equipment always on-hand to inspect prior to ANY connector mating is necessary and will end up as a savings.
