Clean Fiber, Happy Fiber



It only takes microscopic dust and oil particles on the end-faces of fiber optic cables to cause major data loss, or outright fiber link failure. These contaminants are impossible to see with the naked eye but can easily accumulate and be distributed from mating and de-mating soiled plugs. Even brand-new fiber optic connectors straight out the package are susceptible to particulates from those handling the connections before they arrive on site.

Regular inspection and cleaning are the only way to ensure reliable fiber optic connection without running the risk of degradation of fiber optic connectors, data loss, or fiber link failure.

Here are some easy to use fiber optic cleaners that can efficiently remove dirt, oil, and debris from end-face connectors.

Fiber Optic Smart Cleaner Mini

The fiber optic cleaners are the solution for technicians maintaining connectivity with a high volume of connectors. An extendable tip provides accessibility to recessed connectors and the 180-degree rotation engages a full sweep of the connector. A removeable end cap allows you to clean both in-adapter and unmated connectors. This is a dry cleaner, but it is made up of anti-static material, so you won’t create a static charge from the dry wiping after the connector is cleaned. The initial cartridge is good for 400 plus cleanings and can be replaced with a fresh cartridge.


Fiber Optic Cleaner Cassette

The cassette style cleaner utilizes a microfiber cloth tape ribbon that has been ultrasonically cut and washed in deionized water. This ribbon simultaneously traps particulates with the weave and absorbs residues in the strands. One pull of the ergonomic trigger advances the ribbon enough for an entirely new section into the cleaning window. The cassette housing can be easily removed with the aid of a flathead screwdriver to replace the cleaning ribbon spool.

Regular maintenance of fiber optic connections is incredibly important to maintain optimal data transmission. Reach out to our sales team to help find the right solution to help combat against fiber contamination.
