FITEL® NINJA NJ001 Fusion Splicer

NINJA NJ001 Fusion Splicer

Unique Features

This highly accurate, reliable fusion splicing machine offers several unique features over other splicers on the market. Some key advantages are listed below.

    • 13-second splice time
    • 100 cycles
    • High propulsion motor
  • Rugged design
  • PC interface software
  • Auto-start function
  • Removable V-groove
  • 3.5-inch LCD
  • Compatibility with splice-on-connectors
  • Three LEDs
  • 150 splice programs

 

The FITEL® NINJA NJ001 Fusion Splicer . Reducing the total cost of ownership and requiring minimal maintenance, this model is specifically designed to accommodate FTTH (fiber-to-the-home) technicians. For example, the NINJA’s detachable V-groove — the industry’s first — allows technicians to quickly remove and more thoroughly clean critical parts; in the past, splicers needed to be sent out for repair as it was difficult to deep clean individual parts. In fact, the team at FEC has found that dirty V-grooves are the reason for up to 70% of splicer repairs.

 

A handheld single-fiber fusion splicer, the NINJA is compact enough to hold but still provides ample space in the splicing chamber. LED lamps allow for high visibility, while the rugged design makes this splicer well-suited for frequent use. Providing fast splicing in as little as 13 seconds and fast heating, at 20 seconds for a 60-mm sleeve, the NINJA is a reliable solution for any type of on-site job. Automatic splicing can be done at the press of a key by the operator, and a pin guide facilitates fiber placement, allowing for simple, intuitive operation.

 

This fusion splicer offers plenty of room for a technician’s hands to operate and load fibers properly and, thanks to the LEDs that provide more than 300 lux, low-light conditions aren’t a problem. Other user-friendly features include lens protection and a removable heater bracket to help enable field-installable connector assembly — without the need for an external heater — in order to accommodate splice-on connectors (SOC).

 

The FITEL® NINJA NJ001 offers unmatched versatility and long battery life, and is compatible with fusion splice-on field-installable connectors from many manufacturers. Technicians can achieve 100 splicing and heating cycles in a single charge.

FITEL® S183PMII V2 SLDF Advanced Fusion Splicer

S183PM2 V2 Fusion Splicer

Unique Features

  • Specialty Splicing Made Easy – The advanced features of the S183PMII Fusion Splicer allow you to splice today’s and tomorrow’s most exotic fiber types. Whether performing high-strength splices, splicing small cladding fibers (80 µm), large cladding fibers (500 µm), high splicing combinations, PM fibers, or erbium doped fiber, the S183PMII is the splicer for your high-end application.
  • Fast Splice Time – The splice time is lightning fast at 35 seconds for PANDA and 15 seconds for SM. The S183PMII Fusion Splicer is the fastest in the industry for most fiber applications, allowing you to increase efficiency on your production line. Safe PM Fiber Rotation – The new rotation mechanism on the S183PMII Fusion Splicer allows PM fiber to rotate while keeping it straight and stable. This minimizes fiber twist, which can be detrimental to sensitive splicing applications.
  • Quick Loading & Automatic Machine Adjustment – The S183PMII Fusion Splicer automatically adjusts for different fiber coating and cladding sizes. There is no need to exchange v-grooves, or fiber clamps. In addition, the S183PMII Fusion Splicer has been designed so that the user simply loads the fiber and closes the lid to begin the fusion process. There is no need to lower or set fiber clamps before beginning your splice.
  • Automatic Fiber Holder Release – The S183PMII Fusion Splicer automatically performs a tensile proof test on the fiber and releases the holder lid to avoid twisting the fiber after the splice. This automation eliminates the need for the user to manually open and reset the splicer after each fusion splice.

The S183PMII V2 Advanced Fusion Splicer was designed specifically for the demanding production and research applications of the optical components industry, being capable of:

  • Splicing specialty and exotic fiber combinations
  • Very large diameter fiber splicing (up to 500 µm)(With optional LDF holder and LDF electrode)
  • Polarization maintaining fiber splicing
  • High-strength splicing application
