Fujikura adds automatic fibre stripper to splicing accessories range
The Fujikura SS110 automatic stripper
Fujikura Europe has released the SS110 automatic stripper, alongside upgrades to its specialty application cleavers with the introduction of the CT110 and CT111.
Designed with versatility and ease of use in mind, the SS110 is applicable to a range of fibre sizes (including 125μm cladding and 900μm coating) thanks to an optional additional blade which provides users with flexibility for a range of applications.
The SS110 includes an RFID tag attached to the newly designed fibre holder; which enables the stripper to automatically select the most appropriate programme for the fibre. This helps to eliminate the risk of failed strips due to incorrect programme selection. Furthermore, the SS110 boasts an automatic stripping mechanism, ensuring both easy operation and consistent stripping results.
Accompanying the SS110, the CT110 and CT111 cleavers have been upgraded from the CT101/102 models. Both are equipped with an automatic blade position changing mechanism, which adjusts the blade height to ensure consistent cleaving quality. The new automatic tension setting correctly tensions the fibre to achieve precise cleaves with ease. The RFID wireless communication feature reads the RFID tag attached to the newly designed fibre holder, selecting the appropriate cleaving programme for the fibre.
Sameen Saleem, European Business Development Engineer at Fujikura says: "We’re pleased to launch our brand-new SS110 automatic stripper, which includes RFID technology and automatic stripping operation for consistent and high-quality end results. The SS110 is joined by the new CT110/111 series of cleavers, which improve on our CT101/102 cleavers thanks to the addition of automatic features to further optimise the cleaving process, making it as efficient as possible for users.”
