At the 2019 BICSI Winter Conference and Exhibition in Orlando, FL, Sticklers Fiber Optic Cleaning Products will launch an all-in-one fiber-optic cleaning and inspection kit.
The Fiber Optic Inspection and Cleaning Kit combines Sticklers fiber cleaning products with a VIAVI FiberChek Probe Microscope. Each kit contains Sticklers CleanClicker fiber-optic connector cleaners, fiber-optic splice and connector cleaning fluid, cleaning wipes, Cleanstixx connector cleaning sticks, the VIAVI FiberChek handheld scope, and a water-tight and air-tight carry case designed for field use. The kit is designed to meet international standard IEC 61300-3-35 pass-fail criteria.
"As data speeds increase and networks advance, it is essential for them to work well to provide the multi-gigabyte service they promise," said Brain Teague, Sticklers product line manager. "If the fiber used in these networks is contaminated, they will be compromised and can even fail completely. Contamination is the No. 1 threat to optical networks; therefore, cleaning is a mission-critical process."
