MicroCare will dispaly the newest additions to its Sticklers family of fiber-optic cleaning tools at the upcoming BICSI Winter Expo (Feb. 23-26) in Orlando, FL. At the show, MicroCare will introduce its new Sticklers CleanClicker push-to-clean tools. The ergonomic CleanClicker tools contain more than 750 cleaning “clicks” and can clean both male jumpers and female ports.
The CleanClicker tools are available in three sizes: for 2.5 mm and 1.2 mm configurations, and in a MTP/MPO design targeted for use in data centers, central offices and cable TV head ends. The tools, which are built to Sticklers' standards of quality and engineering, are notable for their gentle activation, meaning the pressure applied to the end-face is reduced, minimizing the chances of scratching or damaging the connector.
At BICSI, the company will also be touting an upgrade to its Sticklers cleaning kits. The latest version of these kits will include two CleanClicker tools, allowing each kit to clean more than 3,000 connectors.
MicroCare notes that, in addition to having one of the largest booths at the show (#321), its Sticklers brand also is a Silver Sponsor of the BICSI exhibition. The Sticklers products will also be used in the BICSI Cabling Skills Challenge, a competition in which skilled technicians from around the world match their skills in “real world” tests of fiber installation techniques.
The Sticklers products will be used for cleaning fiber end-faces, splicing procedures, and all of the other cleaning procedures competition participants will face.
