AMS Technologies Presents Compact, Semi-Automated Optical Fiber Splicer CAS-4100 Series

One Step Splice and Fibre Polish: Compact, Semi-Automated Splicers for Standard and Specialty Fibers from 80 µm in Diameter – Designed by VYTRAN for use where space is at a premium

(PresseBox) (Martinsried, ) CAS-4100 and CAS-4100-P are new-generation, compact, semi-automated splicers that produce high-strength, consistent splices quickly and efficiently. CAS systems feature a unique design, advanced imaging capabilities and programming flexibility. They are ideal for development applications and cost-effective, high-volume production, including three-shift manufacturing. CAS-4100-P is tailored for polarization maintaining (PM) fibers.

At the foundation of CAS-4100 systems is Vytrans' proven filament fusion technology - the industry's most reliable method for creating high-strength, low-loss splices. These splicers also utilize True Core Imaging(TM) , a high-resolution imaging system that enables fast, accurate, inner-core alignment and splice loss calculation. In both CAS-4100 and CAS-4100-P, all components, including the imaging system, computer and a large folding display, are embedded into the splicer, reducing the space required by more than a factor of three. A newly designed graphical user interface (GUI) offers two modes of operation. The first, development mode, allows complete process configuration and control. The second, manufacturing mode, is an ultra-simplified GUI for production operators. All splice-related information can be exported via an ethernet port for statistical process control.
