The new Sticklers Pro360™ Touchless Cleaner was introduced at two major trade shows in September, the ECOC Expo in Basel Switzerland and the SCTE Cable-Tec Expo in Philadelphia, PA.
According to our Sticklers team in attendance, there was a real buzz and excitement around the events and they enjoyed a steady stream of visitors to the Sticklers booths. With COVID restrictions loosening, show attendees are returning to in-person events.
Many cleaning product end users and decision makers stopped by to see the latest in fiber optic end face cleaning including the prototype for the new Sticklers Pro360™ Touchless Cleaner that received a universally positive response.
The new Sticklers Pro360™ Touchless Cleaner completely cleans signal-blocking oils and dust across the entire end face of both male and female connector ends, while removing static at the same time
A hand-held dispensing wand delivers a micro-dose of atomized, high-purity cleaning fluid within a narrow column of pressurized air onto a fiber optic connector end face. The contamination is carried away from the end face with the cleaning fluid during the drying process. The end face is left clean and dry after just one 3.5 second cycle.
The engineered cleaning fluid provides up to 2700 cleans and is classified as non-hazardous and non-regulated for transport by air, sea and ground. Containing less than three fluid ounces, the Sticklers Pro360™ cleaning fluid cartridge can be carried through airport security screening.
The Sticklers™ Pro 360™ Touchless Cleaner currently includes adapters to clean 1.25mm and 2.5mm connectors to start and will expand with 1.6mm for military; 2.0mm for broadband; MPO/MTP in various fiber counts and Hi Density (SN, CS, MDC, MMC-VSFF) in the future.
The Sticklers™ Pro 360™ Touchless Cleaner comes with two rechargeable lithium-ion batteries and charging station, an AC power supply with international adapter, adapter tips for cleaning LC and SC connectors, a cleaning fluid cartridge and a rugged case for storage and transport.
The Sticklers™ sales team will be leading product demos and training sessions for Sticklers™ rep partners and distributors across the globe in the first quarter of 2023. Many show attendees signed up for a demo and volunteered to be authorized field testers.
