Featured Products

FCP2 Cleaning Kits from AFL offer a complete selection of fiber optic cleaning products for field cleaning of connector endfaces in a convenient duffle bag style carry case. The Basic Cleaning Kit includes FCC2 cleaning fluid, One-Clicks for SC, ST, FC, LC and MU connectors, FiberWipes, and a Cletop SB. Options available to include inspection, MPO/MTP cleaning, and loss testing capabilities.
The FCP1 Connector Cleaning Kits from AFL give you the tools you need to quickly and easily clean various types of fiber optic connectors in the field. Kits include various configurations of FCC2 Connector Cleaning Fluid, CCT Connector Cleaning Tips, FiberWipes, Cletop Cartridge Cleaner, Cletop (ACT) Cleaning Sticks, and Noyes VS 300 Inspection Scope.
The One-Click Cleaner is an easy-to-use option for cleaning connectors on jumpers and in adapters. Simply insert the One-Click Cleaner into an adapter and push until an audible “click” is heard. The One-Click Cleaner uses the mechanical push action to advance an optical grade cleaning tape while the cleaning tip is rotated to ensure the fiber end-face is effectively, but gently cleaned.
Offering the same technology and performance as the original, the One-Click Cleaner is now available in a smaller, more compact size, which allows for cleaning of connectors in tighter places. Its smaller size also makes it a great addition to test kits and cleaning kits.
The One-Click Ultra Cleaner 2.5 has an enlarged cleaning area to clean more of the connector end-face. The One-Click Ultra Cleaner 2.5 cleans up to a 2 mm diameter area of the connector end-face. The One-Click Ultra Cleaner is a superior cleaner for SC, ST, and FC connectors.
Reduce cleaning time with the new One-Click Cleaner D-LC. Offering the same performance and easy-to-use one-click technology as the original, the One-Click Cleaner D-LC cuts cleaning time in half by effectively cleaning both LC connectors of a duplex LC at one time. 500+ duplex LC cleans per cleaner (1000+ LC connector cleans).
The One-Click Cleaner is designed to clean MPO and MTP® multi-fiber connectors used in Data Centers and other high density optical networks. The new One-Click Cleaner MPO is a revolutionary push-type cleaner which simplifies cleaning of the ferrule end-face of both exposed MPO/MTP® connectors and MPO/MTP® connectors in adapters. As with all One-Click Cleaners the One-Click Cleaner MPO uses the innovative push-to-clean design.
The NEOCLEAN-E uses a simple one push action to quickly and effectively clean contamination from the end-face of connectors on jumpers or in adapters, reducing cleaning time. It is effective for removing oil, dust, and dirt particulates that can have a negative impact on fiber optic network performance.
The Cletop–S Series is a second generation CLETOP cleaner offering the same Cletop cleaning performance with “Drop-in” replacement tape cartridge and ergonomic design that works equally well for left or right handed operators.
The Cletop optical fiber connector cleaners from AFL are a rugged handheld tool for cleaning fiber optic connector end faces. The Cletop cleaners quickly and effectively clean a variety of connectors. Cletop cleaners are a safe cleaning option without the need for alcohol, which can be toxic and flammable. Cletop cleaners have refillable cleaning tapes with 400 cleans per tape making them ideal for lab and field use.
The AFL CleanConnect 500 effectively removes contaminants such as oil, dust and dirt particulates that cause high insertion loss and reflectance and lead to permanent connector damage and network failures. The special lint free anti-static microfiber fabric cleaning tape traps contaminants without leaving the residues of solvents and alcohol.
The OPTIPOP-C cloth card cleaner uses a unique, densely woven micro fiber cloth that provides a superior connector cleaning performance. It minimizes static charge to ensure that dust and dirt particles are not instantly attracted back to the connector end-face.
The AFL FCC2 Fiber Optic Cleaning Fluid is a non-flammable, environmentally safe, residue free solvent engineered to easily and safely remove contaminants from fiber optic end-faces. It outperforms alcohol IPA based cleaners without the health and safety risks. The compact size of the FCC2 3 oz. can makes it easy to fit in cleaning, tool, inspection, and test equipment cases. FCC2 solution is not hazardous and not regulated for all modes of transportation and shipping including air-cargo.
FPF1 is a non-flammable, environmentally safe, solvent engineered to clean fibers after stripping, before fusion splicing or field termination. It out performs alcohol without the health and safety risks. FPF1 Fiber Preparation Fluid can by shipped with your fusion splicer anywhere by any method. FPF1 fluid is engineered to provide the same familiar "squeak" when the fiber is clean so, technician require no retraining.
CCT Cleaning Tips from AFL meet the cleaning needs of today's networks. CCT Cleaning Tips are a unique technology in fiber connector end-face cleaning. The tips are a molded, sintered polymer that is both porous and pliable conforming to virtually any fiber end-face polish geometry while trapping and absorbing contaminants. Designed to be used with AFL's FCC2 Connector Cleaning Fluid for a consistent and reliable connector cleaning system. Sizes are available for most connectors.
Cletop (ACT) adapter cleaning sticks offered by AFL are an easy an efficient means of cleaning fiber optics connectors in adapters and cleaning alignment sleeves. Cletop sticks are available in sizes for most common commercial connectors (ST, SC, FC, LC, & MU), military connectors, and LEMO connectors for video applications. When connectors need to be cleaned inside adapters, you can rely on the Cletop stick
Thorough cleaning of a fusion splicer’s optical elements and alignment V-grooves is critical to ensure successful trouble-free splicing operations. CS-1 Cotton Swabs are especially useful for such cleaning operations. The small size of the CS-1 swabs ensures accessibility in tight places and will not leach out chemicals or lint and contaminate optical elements.
Specifically designed to remove and trap common contaminants found in fiber optic installations, AFL FiberWipes provide superior cleaning results from material that is stronger and more absorbent, yet softer than traditional cellulose wipes. Packaged in a clean room, the fabric is considered “fiber optic grade”. FiberWipes are available in rugged mini-tubs (90 wipes) or in hermetically sealed individual packages (FiberAide 1) and are the perfect size for tool kits and test kits.
The Sticklers™ brand CleanWipes™ are a convenient cleaning tool designed for high-speed cleaning of optical jumpers and patch cords. Its designs enables technicians to clean fiber optic end-faces at the lowest possible cost per clean.
Kimwipes are specially designed paper fiber optic cleaning wipes which can be used for cleaning laboratory equipment and instruments, camera lens, fiber optic connectors and other electronic items. These delicate task wipes have been specially designed for cleaning those surfaces where the presence of minimal lint or dust can interfere with the normal functioning of the equipment or electronic item.
Environmental contamination, such as dust, dirt, and fiber coating debris, as well as, the silica deposits generated during the fusion process eventually find their way to the surface of the v-groove. This contamination will offset the fibers and degrade performance. To solve cleaning needs, AFL offers the Splicer V-Groove Cleaning Kit. This product integrates eight components into an affordable and effective inspection and cleaning solution for any fusion splicer.
