How to Use a One-Push 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 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-push 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 data transmission of the optical network. How to use a one-push cleaner? Let's read the article now.

One-Push Cleaner Overview

The one-push cleaner is an easy-to-use option for cleaning connectors on jumpers and in adapters. Simply insert the one-push cleaner into an adapter and push until an audible “click” is heard. The one-push 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-push cleaners, depending on the need and the type of fiber connectors, a 1.25mm one-push cleaner for LC/MU type fibers, a 2.5mm one-push cleaner for SC/ST/FC type fibers and an MPO/MTP one-push cleaner for MPO/MTP type fibers.

1.25mm LC/MU and 2.5mm SC/ST/FC One-Push Cleaners User Guide

1.25mm one-push cleaner is an easy-to-use option for cleaning MU and LC connectors in adapters and exposed 1.25mm ferrules. Each In-Adapter Cleaner delivers up to 750 cleanings to remove a variety of contaminates including dusts and oils. 2.5mm one-push cleaner can clean SC, ST, FC and LSH connectors in adapters and exposed 2.5mm ferrules.

NOTE:

 Do not tilt, angle, or slant the cleaner while inserting the tip into the adapter.  Do not use excessive force during insertion as this may damage the connector and/or cleaner.  If resistance is experienced while pushing the cleaner body toward the adapter, remove the cleaner tip from the adapter and inspect for contamination on the tip and in the adapter.

MPO/MTP One-Push Cleaner User Guide

MPO/MPT one-push cleaner is designed to clean MPO and MTP multi-fiber connectors used in data centers and other high density optical networks, which simplifies cleaning of the ferrule end-face of both MPO/MTP exposed connectors and connectors in adapters. As with all one-push cleaner, the MPO/MPT one-push cleaner uses the innovative push-to-clean design. The mechanical push action advances the optical grade cleaning tape while effectively and gently cleaning the end-face of the connector.

MPO/MTP One-Click Cleaner

 Cleaning Connectors Installed In Adapters (Bulkhead Applications)

1. Pull off the protective cap.

2. Insert the cleaning tool into the bulkhead and turn the cleaning wheel backwards until “click” 2 times.

 Cleaning Connectors Not Installed In Adapters

3. Carefully pull out the protective cap cover.

4. Insert the patch cord into the cleaning tool, apply slight pressure and turn the cleaning wheel backwards until “click” 2 times.
