Fiber Cleaning Cassettes and Pens


Cleanliness of fiber optic connections is critical to the performance of optical communication networks. Contamination on a connector end face, even if only at the microscopic level, can create severe problems. Dirty fiber can generate strong back reflections (Return Loss) and may also impact attenuation (Insertion Loss).

Cassette-type Cleaners
Cassette-type cleaners quickly and effectively clean a variety of connectors. They are a safe cleaning option without the need for isopropyl alcohol. The units are designed to accept replacement cleaning tapes making them ideal for lab, assembly lines and field use. They feature simple push button shutter operation, which makes cleaning connectors quick and easy.

Pen Style Cleaners
Fiber Optic Cleaning Pens are an easy-to-use option for cleaning connectors on jumpers and in adapters. Simply insert the cleaner into an adapter and push until an audible “click” is heard. The mechanical push action advances the cleaning tape while the tip is rotated to ensure the fiber end-face is gently but effectively removed of dust, oil, and other debris without nicking or scratching the end face.
