Neutrik Intros New Fiber Optic Cleaning Tools for OpticalCON ADVANCED Cable Connectors
Neutrik USA has introduced its new cleaning and inspection accessory tools for opticalCON ADVANCED cable connectors. Designed for both convenience in the field and as an improved method for cleaning the fiber optic ferrules without damage, the new Fiber Optic Cleaning Accessories are for engineers and technicians whose work routinely involves the use of Neutrik’s opticalCON fiber optic cables.
Neutrik’s opticalCON ADVANCED cable connectors are identified as part numbers: FOCD-STD (DUO), FOCD-STQ (QUAD), and FOCD-STM (MTP—both 12 and 24). Operation is easy. The user simply pushes one of these cleaning tools onto the front face of the opticalCON ADVANCED cable connector. Once this is done, the tool latches in place and holds the shutter open. The tool includes holes that are perfectly sized and positioned for inserting conventional third-party cleaning tools and inspection probes.
These tools eliminate the need to remove the opticalCON ADVANCED cable connector front housing in order to access the fiber optic ferrules. This vastly simplifies and speeds up cleaning and inspection. The tools also make the process safer: by leaving the connector’s front housing in place, the risk of inadvertent damage to the fiber is significantly reduced—making these tools a a good resource for field technicians and making the opticalCON system more user friendly.
“For anyone using fiber optic cables outfitted with Neutrik’s opticalCON ADVANCED cable connectors, these new cleaning tools are an invaluable accessory. The cleaning accessories make it easier to access and clean the sensitive fiber optic ferrules and, in doing so, ensure optimal performance. I’m confident they will quickly become an invaluable accessory for technicians and others who routinely use fiber optic cables.” Peter Milbery, President of Neutrik USA, Inc., says.
Neutrik’s Fiber Optic Cleaning Accessories are slated to become available in July 2017. For additional information, please contact Neutrik’s Sales Department at 704- 972-3050.
