Fujikura announces the launch of the 90S core alignment fusion splicer

Share this on social media:

The latest evolution of fusion splicer has been launched by Fujikura with its new 90S. It features a host of new and enhanced features developed to help the user work faster with higher precision.

Overall splice process time has been significantly reduced against the 70S+ thanks to a combination of improvements to the reaction time of the automated wind protectors and automated heater, new fibre retention clamps, improved universal sheath clamps and a redesigned internal structure that matches the protection sleeve position to the fusion splice point which enables splicing to be achieved without the need of the user to touch the 90S once the process has started.

This improvement in speed has been achieved whilst also improving the precision of the 90S, utilising cutting edge true core alignment technology combined with advanced image processing to ensure the most precise and repeatable splice ever.

The 90S builds on Fujikura’s Active Blade Management Technology, allowing two CT50 cleavers to be connected simultaneously. This allows wireless connecting of the splicer to the optical fibre cleaver. By continually monitoring the cleaver performance and automatically prompting the user at the optimum point to rotate the blade the total cost of ownership will be dramatically reduced.
