How to Use a One-Click Cleaner?

With the deployment of 40G and 100G systems in the data center reliable and efficient fiber installations are critical to the high performance network. Dirt, dust and other contaminants are the enemies of high-speed data transmission over optical fiber. Hence, it is critical that all optical connections are free of contaminants to avoid having application performance issue. Ideally, a properly maintained and cleaned fiber optic cable will help reduce contaminant transfer to a removable or non-removable optical interface, lessening or removing the need to clean expensive and delicate gear. With one-click cleaner you can clean optical connectors even if they are installed in racks, boxes and other sub-rack terminations, allowing you to remove all dust and dirt that could affect the perfect data transmission of the optic network. How to use a one-click cleaner? Let’s read the article now.

One-Click Cleaner Overview

The one-click cleaner is an easy-to-use option for cleaning connectors on jumpers and in adapters. Simply insert the one-click cleaner into an adapter and push until an audible “click” is heard. The one-click cleaner uses the mechanical push action to advance an optical grade cleaning tape while the cleaning tip is rotated to ensure the fiber end-face is effectively, but gently cleaned. There are three types of one-click cleaners, depending on the need and the type of fiber connectors, a 1.25mm one-click cleaner for LC/MU type fibers, a 2.5mm one-click cleaner for SC/ST/FC type fibers and an MPO/MTP one-click cleaner for MPO/MTP type fibers.
