AFL is supplementing its Fujikura fusion splicer product line with the Fujikura 62S, an active core alignment splicer designed for low splice loss and minimized splice time. The field fiber splicer features a conventional flip-open wind protector, non-motorized tube heater, and auto-start feature for both splicing and tube heating.
It also features a 23-second shrink time using standard splice sleeves, mirrorless optical system and impact-resistant monitor. The transit case doubles as a built-in or mobile workstation.
Additional features 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 fiber holder operation; and Internet software upgrades.
