Fusion splicer is a device using an electric arc to melt two optical fibers together at their end faces and form a single long fiber. The resulting joint, or fusion splice, permanently joins the two glass fibers end to end, so that optical light signals can pass from one fiber into the other with very little loss. There are numerous well-known brands of fusion splicer such as Fujikura, CLETOP, EXFO, Noyes, AFL ect. The most famous brand of these is Fujikura. This text mainly introduces Fujikura fusion splicer.
Fujikura Ltd. is a global, Tokyo-based electrical equipment manufacturing company. It develops and manufactures power and telecommunication systems products, including devices for optical fibres, like cutters and splicers. As the leading splicer brand in the world, Fujikura achieves and maintains the leading splicer brand in the world by providing quality products, extensive knowledge to telecommunication, photonics research and manufacturing application.
Fujikura fusion splicer is one of the most widely used device in the world, and known for its performance, productivity and reliability. Fujikura fusion splicer keeps good condition as master’s tool to maintain good quality. And all Fujikura’s fusion splicers are backed by Fujikura’s Technical Support team. Fujikura has over 80 of authorized distributors all over the world. They stand by you and give the best and the quickest support, not only after service, but also before. You can depend on them for a solution to your every problem.
According to different splicing applications, Fujikura fusion splicer can be classified into three types: core alignment splicer, ribbon fiber fusion splicer and special fiber fusion splicer. Core alignment splicer is mostly used in practice, which includes 70S, 19S. Ribbon fiber fusion splicer is an essential tool to work effcient, which includes 70R, 19R and 12R. Special fiber fusion splicer includes FSM-100 series, specialty accessories and recoater.
Fujikura has developed a comprehensive range of fusion splicer products to satisfy for every application. Although Fujikura constantly keep improving and innovating, it has invented the FSM-80S Alignment Fusion Splicer succeeding to Fujikura FMS 60s fusion splicer. The main features of Fujikura FSM-80S in comparison with the FSM-60S as following:
- New Li-Ion battery now allows you to make up to 200 splicing cycles-shrinking
- High speed welding of fiber (7c for single-mode fiber)
- High speed shrink (14c CRSS 60mm)
- Increased lifetime of electrodes – up to 3000 splices
- Splicing with a length of just 5mm cleavage for use with any welded connectors or for micro-CRSS (20mm, 30mm)
- Review System without mirrors
- Automatic closing windproof lid when downloading and opening the fiber at the end of the welding
It is obvious that FSM-80S has plenty of advantages over older ones in many aspects. Today, FSM-80S splicer is the new standard model to cover varied splicing needs in those fields. Also, it is just one of the typical device of Fujikura fusion splicer.
