Fujikura Europe unleashes its latest single fibre active cladding alignment fusion splicer. Designed for FTTX applications, the next-generation smart 41S splicer boasts innovative features in a compact and robust package.
Wirelessly connecting to the CT50 fibre cleaver using Bluetooth technology, the 41S enables a range of pioneering functions that will improve the overall installation time, cost and efficiency for operators. Compared to its predecessor the 22S, the 41S has been upgraded and offers installers the convenience of a 5” color touch-panel display, improved v-groove illumination and the benefit of easy splice protector positioning. The machine re-assures users of reliable splice results using CORE loss estimation using Warm Image Splicing Technology.
The issue of poor fibre cleaving due to worn, incorrectly adjusted or damaged cleaver blades is conveniently dealt with. When the 41S detects a high cleave angle or bad end shape, it sends a blade position change instruction to the cleaver, which then rotates the cleaver blade automatically to the next position, restoring optimum cleaving performance.
In addition to cleave performance, the smart splicer can also wirelessly monitor battery and power usage of the CT50 cleaver. The 41S comes enabled with a touch screen menu as standard, but also maintains the traditional easy-to-use hard button navigation system. The splicer retains all the unique, class-leading features from the current high-performance flagship line-up of Fujikura splicers, including: quick splice and heat times, fully ruggedized features, and user customizable settings.
