Easy way to clean ST, SC fiber connectors and adapters

One of the most over looked part of a fiber optic network installation is the cleaning. I know it's one of the smallest parts of the overall install, it's inexpensive and not sexy but what do the facts say about fiber optic cleaning.

• Proper cleaning saves money – by eliminating service calls caused by dirty connectors
• Clean connectors maximize the performance of the network and reduce repair cost
• Proper cleaning extends the life of connects and reduces replacement costs
• Dirty connectors cause a major percentage of fiber optic network failures
• Prevention is simple – Clean Connectors!
• Cleaning Saves Time and Money!

For keeping your connectors and adapters clean you have several options available and you might be asking yourself what's my best option? That question seems to be an installer preference but one of those preferences that network professionals commonly use is the AFL one click cleaner.

The AFL one click cleaner is designed to be extremely easy to use for connectors, patch jumpers and adapters. Simply push the cleaner until a click is heard. Your push sends a fiber optic grade cleaning tape into action ensuring your fiber optic end face is effectively and gently cleaned. Excellent choice for field technicians and small enough to fit in your shirt pocket.
