Tool Cleans Outdoor 1.25 mm Fiber Optic Connectors
US Conec Ltd. announced the release of its IBC Brand Cleaner ODC. This mechanical cleaning tool uses a dry cleaning strand to remove dust and liquid residue off the end face of plug and socket ODC-Series connectors. This version of the IBC cleaning tools features a new, highly flexible cleaning tip and a ribbed alignment cap. These features, combined with a reinforced nozzle, make the IBC Brand Cleaner ODC tool appropriate for cleaning connectors deployed outdoors. The tool uses a simple pushing motion for engagement and provides an audible click to alert the technician when the tool has been fully engaged. The tool locks at the end of life preventing accidental cross contamination. The IBC tool’s cleaning strand is precisely guided across the cleaning tip ensuring consistent contact with the center of the ferrule while not scratching the end face. This feature eliminates the need to re-install the cleaning strand across the cleaning tip as is the case with many competing mechanical cleaners.
