Fusion splicing technology specialist Fujikura has released the latest
version of their active cladding alignment fusion splicing range, the 41S.
The 41S utilises core sensing loss estimation technology to provide the
most accurate assessment of splice loss available in any active cladding
alignment splicer in the world. Enabled by Warm Splice Imaging (WSI), the 41S
can determine the accuracy of core alignment by evaluation of the splice during
the heating process. This technology delivers splice loss estimates with a
greater level of accuracy than those based on cladding alignment alone.
The Fujikura 41S meets the portability, ruggedness and reliability requirements
of any splicing application.
Key features of the Fujikura 41S splicers include 6-second splice time
and 25-second shrink time; extended-life battery rated for up to 200 splice and
heat cycles; long-life electrodes lasting 5,000 splices; 5″ touchscreen
monitor providing simple, intuitive menu navigation and a crystal clear image
even in the brightest sunlight; online software updates allowing users to stay
up-to-date as new splice programs become available; fully-ruggedised design with
shock-, dust- and rain-proof properties; and carry case that converts to a workstation
for maximum portability.
The dual-camera, active V-groove alignment system of the 41S provides
consistent splicing performance in the most challenging conditions.
Interchangeable sheath clamps or fibre holders provide versatility for user preference,
and compatibility with fusion installable connectors.
State-of-the-art cleaver management via Bluetooth connection with the
CT50 cleaver tracks usage and enables automated blade rotation as needed.
The 41S is now available in the ANZ region through AFL Telecommunications.
