AFL has launched sales of the Fujikura 70R fusion splicer in North America, which is following the 12s, 12R, and 70S models. This product is recorded to the be the fastest ribbon fusion splicer in the world until now. The new design streamlines the steps required to complete splices, resulting in greater productivity, which is based on the success of the Fujikura 60R ribbon fusion splicer.
“The 70R builds on the excellent track record set by the 60R. With the automated wind protector and tube heater, quality splicing is even faster. The tube heater clamps the splice protection sleeve from both sides, resulting in a shrink time of an impressive 40 seconds. ” Commented Greg Pickeral, product manager, fusion splicing systems for AFL.
Enhanced features of the Fujikura 70R fusion splicer include:
Automatic and fully programmable wind protector
40-second tube heater
Electrodes with enough life to support 1500 splices
High capacity Lithium-Ion battery pack (110 splices/shrinks)
On-board training and support videos
A six-direction drop-proof design with fully ruggedized rubber casing
Dust- and rain-proof exterior
A transit case with a detachable, built-in worktable
Full compatibility with the FuseConnect line of splice-on fiber-optic connectors
The 70R is one of several new splicer introductions from Fujikura this year. Later this year, Fujikura plans to unveil the 19s, a fixed V-groove single-fiber fusion splicer, and 19R four fiber ribbon fusion splicer.
