Furukawa launches FitelNinja NJ001 fusion splicer

The ongoing expansion of FTTx networks worldwide calls for affordable, compact and light fusion splicers that are also robust and can safely be used in demanding environments including high, narrow or dark places both inside the home and on construction sites.  Furukawa Electric has designed the FitelNinja NJ001 fusion splicer to meet these requirements.

As robust as its predecessor the S123C, the FitelNinja is considerably smaller and lighter, with improved ease of use, portability and durability, the company claims.
