S184 Fusion Splicer

The FITEL S184 Fusion Splicer features 3SAE Technologies' "Ring of Fire®". This three-phase wide area plasma technology enables splicing of large cladding fibers, as well as flame polishing and core diffusion capability. It is the perfect solution for advanced OEM, R&D, and other specialized applications. It delivers:

  • Extremely stable, controllable, and repeatable heating over a large range of intensity
  • Wide area heat zone to enable advanced splicing techniques
  • Uniformly wide arc coverage to allow for splicing of larger diameter fibers
  • Extremely high thermal power with negligible tungsten deposits compared to competing processes

The FITEL S184 Fusion Splicer is the "Advanced Solution for Next Generation Splicing Technology (for Large Diameter Fibers)".


  • Three electrodes — Three electrodes have been used in the S184PM, instead of two
  • Applicable fiber — Silica optical fibers with clad diameter 80 µm to 1200 µm
  • Smooth rotation mechanism — The new rotation mechanism on the S184PM allows PM fiber to rotate while keeping it straight and stable
  • Flat fiber holder platform — The S184 uses a flat fiber holder platform, so that the larger size fibers do not have to be forced to bend, which can cause fiber breaks and poor angular alignment
  • Automatic adjustment for fiber size/length — The S184PM automatically adjusts for fiber coating diameter, cladding diameter, and cleave length
  • Simple operation — The S184PM has been designed so that the user simply loads the fiber and closes the lid to begin the fusion process
  • Intuitive interface — As with all FITEL fusion splicers, the S184PM features a new GUI (graphical user interface) and transreflective LCD screen technology that makes all operations straightforward and intuitive
  • Large monitor — The high resolution large color 6.5" (165mm) monitor is clearly visible in all conditions
  • Advanced "SmartFuse" functionality — The S184 includes an optional PCbased software platform
