Launch of Sales of New Single Fiber Fusion Splicer 41S

August 6, 2018

Fujikura Ltd. (President and CEO: Masahiko Ito) has announced the launch of a new singe fiber active cladding alignment fusion splicer from September 2018.

By using Bluetooth technology, the 41S wirelessly connects to the CT50 fiber cleaver and enables a range of pioneering features that will improve the overall installation time, cost and efficiency for operators.
Frequently when cleaved fibers are set into a fusion splicer it becomes clear that the bare fiber end is damaged due to friction caused by a worn cleaver blade. However, this issue is efficiently minimized with the 41S fusion splicer. It uses wireless communication to monitor and rotate the fiber cleaver blade into a position where it will produce a good cleave angles.

The 41S also has the unique capability to estimate splice loss with greater accuracy, using a New Core Loss Estimation Function, than previous Fujikura cladding alignment type fusion splicers.

The new fusion splicer will be exhibited at CIOE2018 (China International Optoelectronic Exposition) in China on September 5 and ECOC (European Conference on Optical Communication) to be held in Italy on September 23.
