Laser 2000 presents new FITEL fusion splicers with vastly improved splicing & heating time

The S178A has a more rugged, compact and lighter body compared to the previous model with vastly improved splicing & heating time. The S153A is a new concept machine which uses an ‘Active clad alignment’ function.

(PresseBox) (Wessling, ) The S178A is the successor to the best selling S177A. The S178A has a more rugged, compact and lighter body compared to the previous model with vastly improved splicing & heating time.

Using the same rugged metal body of S178A, FEC will also launch another new Fusion Splicer in February 2010: The S153A is a new concept machine which uses an ‘Active clad alignment’ function, which achieves lower splicing loss with less user skills required compared to a conventional Fixed V-groove Clad Alignment Fusion Splicer.

These two machines are both designed to endure harsh operating conditions by improving shock / impact resistance with rubber pads embedded on 4 corners of the splicer body. Both fusion splicers also achieve water resistance compliant to IPX2 and dust resistance compliant to IP5X.

Another key feature of the S178A and the S153A is the significantly reduced operation time. Protection sleeve shrink time is mere 25 seconds, while splicing requires only 7 seconds with S178A. Power saving technology used in these machines allows up to 200 splicing cycles (splicing and heating) with 2 built in rechargeable batteries.

By combining improved speed, precision, durability and portability in one body, the S178A and S153A ushers in entirely new possibilities for fusion splicing applications.
