AFL has expanded its Fujikura fusion splicer product line with the Fujikura 62S, an active core alignment splicer designed for exceptional splice loss performance and reduced splice time.
With a conventional flip-open wind protector and non-motorised tube heater, the complexity of the splicer is reduced without compromising total cycle time. The auto-start feature for the splicing and tube heating process reduces the number of necessary steps to process splices.
“The 62S highlights the ingenuity of Fujikura engineers to create a fusion splicer that is unique to what’s currently on the market,” said Greg Pickeral, product manager of AFL’s fusion splicer product line. “True to Fujikura’s reputation for best-in-class products, the 62S features leading technology coupled with exceptional splice loss performance. For field technicians who need high quality and reliability, AFL’s offers a wide range of splicers, now including the 62S, suitable for the harshest of environments.”
The Fujikura 62S ensures a high level of productivity with the 23-second shrink time using standard splice sleeves. Durability is enhanced by incorporating ruggedised features, a mirrorless optical system and impact-resistant monitor. The transit case doubles as a built-in or mobile workstation and makes splicing easier.
Additional features of the Fujikura 62S include a 5,000 splice electrode life; Li-ion battery with 200 splices/shrinks per charge; 5-mm cleave length for splice-on connectors or small package needs; sheath clamp or fibre holder operation; and Internet software upgrades.
