One-Click Cleaner MPO

Fujikura Europe has launched its new One-Click Cleaner MPO, designed for cleaning MPO/MTP connectors and adapter mounted MPO/MTP connectors that are widely used in data centres and also in some telco-operated infrastructures.

The company says the product cleans MPO/MTP connector end-faces that have been exposed to loose contaminants, such as dirt and oil from an installer's fingers. With just one action it is able to clean a variety of fibre counts up to 48 fibre MPO/MTP end faces and is capable of providing over 500 cleans per unit, says Fujikura.

'This new tool will make the task of cleaning these abundant connectors easier and quicker with improved functionality, and it will keep the cost per clean down and allow for in situ cleans too, which some other cleaners are not able to do,' said Brian Leonard, European product manager for connectivity. 'This is the first MPO device in the Fujikura One Click Cleaner range and we created it primarily to service the data centre market.'

The cleaner is compliant with the EU/95/2002/EC directive (RoHS) since it is made of environmentally friendly materials. An adapter/dust cap is also supplied with the product for cleaning MPO/MTP connector plugs as well as the connectors themselves.
