Fujikura Europe launches smart fusion splicers

Fujikura 70S+ fusion splicer

Fujikura Europe will be launching a new line of Bluetooth-enabled fusion splicers at ECOC 2017 in Gothenburg, Sweden. These include the new core alignment single fibre optical fusion splicer, the 70S+, and the new twelve-fibre ribbon optical fibre fusion splicer, the 70R+.

The integration of Bluetooth allows the splicers to pair with the accompanying ‘Splice+’ smartphone application for easy control over settings, firmware and functionality. These smart splicers can detect cleave and strip condition, as well as monitor battery and power usage.

Fujikura Europe upgrades optical fibre identifiers

Fujikura Europe has launched new and advanced optical fibre identifiers, the FID-30R and FID-31R, which feature what the company claims is the world’s highest TONE signal-detection sensitivity.

The FID-30R includes an optical power meter and succeeds the FID-25R while the FID-31R, the updated standard model, replaces the FID-26R. The fibre identifiers, used for identifying the light power presence in optical fibres, include three detecting functions: TONE, TRAFFIC, and ONU.

Fujikura launches 21S compact fusion splicer

Fujikura Europe has launched the 21S, an advanced single-fibre splicer that it claims is the smallest and lightest active V-groove model on the market.

The compact splicer, which has been developed for FTTx, access network, data centre and LAN applications, features a moveable V-groove mechanism for active alignment to improve splicing performance and give consistent splicing results.

Engineering and optimising service

Fujikura Europe has launched an 'engineering and optimisation service', aimed at helping customers get the most out of their splicing equipment.

The company says its specialist team of engineers can assist in the fabrication and development of optical components which may require a critical splice. This includes dissimilar fibre splicing, ball lens, tapering, combiners, thermal expansion of core, and mode field adaptors.

PRODUCT

FOCIS WiFi

Fujikura Europe has expanded its portfolio of optical test equipment for the UK market with a WiFi-based solution application available for Android and iOS devices called FOCIS WiFi. 

The FOCIS WiFi allows field installation and maintenance personnel to perform test and inspection operations with precision and mobility through a free app on their own devices which delivers a pass/fail indication in less than one second.

PRODUCT

LazerMaster and ArcMaster

Fujikura Europe, a manufacturer of fibre optic cables and equipment, has enhanced its LazerMaster and ArcMaster series, for use in the biomedical and research industries. Alongside this release the company has also announced new services centred around its optimised splicing technology.

One-Click Cleaner MPO

Fujikura Europe has launched its new One-Click Cleaner MPO, designed for cleaning MPO/MTP connectors and adapter mounted MPO/MTP connectors that are widely used in data centres and also in some telco-operated infrastructures.

The company says the product cleans MPO/MTP connector end-faces that have been exposed to loose contaminants, such as dirt and oil from an installer's fingers. With just one action it is able to clean a variety of fibre counts up to 48 fibre MPO/MTP end faces and is capable of providing over 500 cleans per unit, says Fujikura.
