Fujikura FSM-50S Fiber Fusion Splicers

The FSM-50S Fusion Splicer is the new standard in fiber splicers featuring 9 second splice time and 35 second tube heating time. The 50S Arc splicer is a modern marvel of splicing with its sleek profile, light packaging and terrific performance. The 50S is optimal for field use. Key Features:Fujikura 50s Fusion Splicer

  • PAS Core to Core Fiber Alignment System: The Performance Alignment System platform in effect
  • Dual-Directional Operating System: Ergonomic reverse monitor allows for terrific ease of use.
  • Calibration-Free Arc System: No longer deal with time-consuming arc calibration, the FSM50S automatically calibrates on its own.
  • Optional Large Capacity slot-in batteries Offering two types of slot-in batteries: BTR-06S and BTR-06L
  • 9 Second Splice Time: New stepping motor and top notch computer processing allow for a 9 second splice with SM fiber.
  • 35 Second Tube-Heat Time: With FP-03 protection sleeve, achieve 35 second tube-heat time thanks to Advanced Heater Design.

  Opinion: The Fujikura 50s was a successful splicer for Fujikura but actual little difference between the FSM-40s, FSM-50s and FSM-60s. Each models is similar to the last, except of course that the 60s was ruggedized and includes an updated case.

Fujikura FSM-30S Fusion Splicer

Fujikura FSM-30S Singlemode / Multimode Fiber Fusion Splicer offers fully automatic operation, programmable tube heating cycle and a splice loss control function. Key Features:

  • Fully automatic operation once fibers are set in the fixture
  • Observation of both X and Y axis simultaneously
  • Atmosphere, humidity and temperature compensation functions provided
  • Mechanical proof test provided
  • Automatically stores the last 100 splice losses together with dates. Optional built-in memory card slot for storing additional splices.
  • Mode field diameter mismatch compensation splicing programs. Suitable for splicing two different fibers.
  • Splice loss control function
  • Arc power is optimized automatically by an integrated arc power test
  • Programmable tube heating cycle
  • Dust detection
