Fujikura launches 90R mass fusion splicers to help manage lock-down network surge
Fujikura Europe has launched a range of 90R mass fusion splicers designed to significantly reduce overall working time for engineers. The move comes as telecoms companies across Europe take unprecedented steps to protect networks experiencing significantly higher demand as a result of mass home-working.
The 90R series consists of three separate models: 90R4, to splice up to four fibre ribbon cables simultaneously; the 90R12, which can splice up to 12; and 90R16 for up to 16.
The new V-groove assembly can be quickly and easily fitted in the field, minimising downtime and maximising productivity at a time when maintaining the network is more important than ever. It also enables splicing of both 250um and 200um pitch fibers and is fully compatible with single fibres, standard encapsulated ribbons as well as Spider Web Ribbon types.
Faster working time has been achieved through a combination of improvements which as well as the replaceable v-grooves includes improved reaction time of the automated wind protectors and automated heater. The 5-inch LCD touch screen, which enables engineers to make use of Fujikura’s Active Blade Management Technology, can now also connect to two CT50 cleavers simultaneously.
