The CLETOP-MPO Cassette Cleaner is a rugged handheld tool for cleaning MPO and MTP® fiber optic connector end faces with pins. CLETOP cleaners are a safe cleaning option without the need for isopropyl alcohol, which is toxic and flammable. CLETOP cleaners have refillable cleaning tapes with 400 cleans per tape making them ideal for lab and field use.
Micro fiber sticks are the ideal consumable for cleaning 1.25mm bulkheads after installation. They can be used to clean the end faces of installed connectors from inside the enclosure. Cleaning is achieved by inserting the micro fiber tip inside the adapter’s aperture and twisting once. The micro fiber material allows the user to clean installed connector end faces without scratching the surface and ensures a perfect clean first time.
FCC2 Fiber Connector Cleaner Fluid
Easily and safely clean contaminants from fiber connector end-faces and optical fiber before field terminating or fusion splicing. The FCC2 Enhanced Formula Fiber Optic Cleaning and Preparation Fluid is a non-flammable, environmentally safe, residue free solvent engineered to easily remove contaminants from fiber optic end-faces and bare fiber. It outperforms alcohol IPA based cleaners without the health and safety risks. FCC2 is not hazardous and not regulated for all modes of transportation and shipping including air-cargo.
When polishing the ferrule of the connector it is essential that the process is kept clean, this ensures accurate and repeatable polishing. The recommended products to be used in the polishing process include low-lint tissues and de-ionized water. Low Lint tissues are a versatile consumable for many applications. They are mainly used to clean bare fiber as part of the termination or splicing process. The low-lint characteristic allows them to be used for a multitude of other purposes such as cleaning optical equipment and preparing work surfaces.
