Furukawa Electric Co., LTD. are pleased to announce the launch of the latest FITEL brand hand-held fusion splicers, FITEL S123M8 and S123M12 fusion splicers.
"The FITEL S123M8 and S123M12 fusion splicers bring additional speed and durability for our installers," said Linda Dembowski, General Manager. "Improved operation time and power saving technology will give our customers greater efficiency, consistency and ultimately, cost savings in last mile applications."
FITEL S123M8 is an 8 ribbons fiber cable fusion splicer and S123M12 can do up to 12 ribbons fiber cables. However, they both share these new features:
- Fast splicing (about 15 seconds) with low loss and fast heating (about 35 seconds) for a ribbon fiber.
- Long battery life with power saving technology allows up to 160 splicing and heating cycles by fully charged battery packs installed in the main body.
- Shock resistant design with 4 rubber pads in corners of machine boosting the shock resistance significantly compared with previous models.
- Dust and water resistant design.
In the field where installers are required to splice various fibers such as single, 4-ribbon and 8/12 ribbon, these versatile and user friendly hand-held S123M8/12 models are ideal tools to have. They have the ability to splice any fibers up to 8 and 12 ribbon respectively by simply changing the fiber holders, in any fields such as FTTx, LAN, backbone and long-haul installations where fast and consistent splicing is the absolute necessity.
