AFL Australia has released the latest version of Fujikura’s active cladding alignment fusion splicing range, the 41S, in the Australia and New Zealand region.
The Fujikura 41S is a fully ruggedised, active cladding alignment fusion splicer. It uses core sensing loss estimation technology to provide accurate assessment of splice loss available in any active cladding alignment splicer. Enabled by Warm Splice Imaging (WSI), the 41S can determine the accuracy of core alignment by evaluation of the splice during the heating process. This technology delivers splice loss estimates with a greater level of accuracy than those based on cladding alignment alone.
The 41S has a six-second splice time and 25-second shrink time, an extended-life battery rated for up to 200 splice and heat cycles, and long-life electrodes lasting 5,000 splices. The 5-inch touchscreen monitor provides simple, intuitive menu navigation and a crystal clear image even in the brightest sunlight. Online software updates allow users to stay up-to-date as new splice programs become available.
The dual-camera, active V-groove alignment system of the 41S provides consistent splicing performance in challenging conditions. Interchangeable sheath clamps or fibre holders provide versatility for user preference, and compatibility with fusion installable connectors. All this inside a fully-ruggedised design that is shock, dust and rain proof, with its own carry case that converts to a work station for maximum portability.
Cleaver management via Bluetooth connection with the CT50 Cleaver tracks usage and enables automated blade rotation as needed. The Fujikura 41S is suitable for use when portability, ruggedness, and reliability are needed for your splicing application.
