CleanClicker

Sticklers CLEANCLICKER debuts at BICSI Winter Conference

MicroCare Corp. launched the Sticklers Cassette CLEANCLICKER fiber connector cleaner at the recent BICSI Winter Conference in Tampa. Designed to be an economical alternative to more expensive, trigger-operated cassette cleaners, it uses a high performance microwoven fabric for the cleaning ribbon which has high absorbency for removing end-face contamination. The woven material provides excellent dust trap capabilities.
The fiber connector cleaner can be used either as a dry wipe or with “wet-dry” cleaning. It cleans all female MPO connectors of any fiber count as well as all standard single and duplex fiber connector assemblies. The company says this makes it ideal for field installations, test labs, OEM equipment and cable assembly production, field installers and Installation kits.
The translucent plastic housing also makes it easy for the operator to visually judge the quantity of cleaning ribbon remaining in the cassette, avoiding unpleasant surprises out in the field.
