These two cassettes are the latest options for cleaning connector end faces. Both feature and open cleaning window that provides the operator full and unobstructed access to the cleaning ribbon for effectively wiping the connectors. The open window and manual advancing cleaning wheel make these next generation cassette cleaners more effective with a lower cost of ownership when compared to the first generation trigger and shutter style cassettes. These Cassette CleanClicker Connector Cleaners have a clear housing window to make it easy for the operator to identify how much cleaning ribbon is remaining on the cassette. These cassette cleaners are a one time use cassette and use a micro-woven cleaning ribbon that is highly absorbent to wick away residues. The weave pattern combined with the ribbon’s softness provides excellent wiping performance for removing dust particles without scratching the glass, ceramic and composite ferrule end faces.
- Part number MCC-CCWRC cleans all standard single fiber connectors including SC duplex, LC duplex, FC, ST and E2000 connectors. This version will also clean the female (no guide pins) MPO connectors.
- Part Number MCC-CCWMT is made to clean the male (with guide pin) MPO connectors. The backing in the cleaning window is cut to accept the guide pins so the fiber array is being wiped effectively by the cleaning ribbon.
The width of the cleaning ribbon varies by product. The “CCWRC” version is for female end faces and is 15mm wide. The male MT ferrule cleaning tool is more narrow; the distance between the alignment pins. The cleaning ribbon width for both versions of the Cassette CleanClicker is 12.5 meters (approximately 40 feet). Either cassette will provide users with least 400 clean end faces. That number doubles with duplex connectors like LC and SC.
For companies needing to clean male MT ferrule connectors — cleaning between the alignment pins, choose the “CCWMT” version. Both products are optimized for carrier networks and are ideal for OSP and premises applications, enterprise applications, field installation kits, OEM assembly and even research labs. Contains about 400+ cleanings. For even better results, use with the Sticklers cleaning fluid (#MCC-POC03M and #MCC-POC10M).
