Corning Cable Systems OptiSplice® CDS Fusion Splicer is the ideal machine for networks where low-loss performance is imperative. Ideal for long-haul, CATV, telco, and LAN applications, it can accurately splice current, legacy, dissimilar and specialty fiber types.
The OptiSplice CDS Fusion Splicer offers the speed and versatility of a video-camera-based core-alignment technology known as the core detection system (CDS). The CDS works on both 250 and 900 micron fibers and offers the fastest total splice cycle time on the market for a core-alignment fusion splicer. The ultra-fast heatshrink oven requires only 20 sec heating time on industry standard 60 mm heat-shrinks.
With graphical user interface for easy menu navigation, the OptiSplice® CDS Fusion Splicer provides the most advanced set of features available in its class, including a high-contrast 5.7-in color touch screen with an ambient light sensor for automatic adjustment to different lighting conditions (even direct sunlight) and includes on-board, interactive training videos with operational and maintenance sections. The Auto-Start feature begins the splice process when the fiber flaps close.
The OptiSplice CDS Fusion Splicer offers a slot for a multimedia card (MMC), a USB work lamp and two USB ports for easy data output and software upgrades. It includes maintenance-free precise and durable (P&D) electrodes that last up to seven times longer than competing electrodes.
This compact, user-friendly fusion splicer yields top-notch performance, while reducing training and maintenance costs and is RDUP listed (formerly
RUS). The Integrated Global Positioning System (GPS), which can be disabled, automatically adjusts for altitude changes and allows for storing of splice
Advanced statistical data analysis features allow for the operator to graphically view the performance of things such as the cleave quality over a period of time. This enables the operator to make informed maintenance decisions based on data analysis, such as when to replace a cleaver blade.
