The Fujikura 21S active cladding alignment fusion splicer bridges the long standing gap between core alignment and fixed v-groove fusion splicer technology. Moveable v-grooves eliminate splicer errors due to dust and other contaminants. Despite its incredibly small size, this ruggedized, fullfeatured unit offers unmatched versatility for splicing in the most challenging environments. The innovative transit case and work tray provide multiple options for the best utilization of available work space while the long life battery provides power for up to 200 splice cycles which include application of the splice protection sleeve. The Fujikura 21S incorporates features typically found only in more expensive models. Removablesheath clamps allow the use of fiber holders if desired. The large 4.7″ monitor provides a crystal clear image, even in the brightest sunlight, for evaluating splice quality. The electrode life has beenextended to 3,000 splices, minimizing downtime for replacement and stabilization. Software updates are accomplished via the internet allowing users to quickly update their software as new splice programs become available. The fully ruggedized chassis provides for shock, dust and moisture protection while the two camera observation system provides for accurate fiber alignment and loss estimation calculations. The Fujikura 21S is also fully compatible with the FuseConnect line of fusion installable connectors. Backed by the best service team in the industry, the Fujikura 21S is the ideal splicer to use when portability, ruggedness, versatility and reliability are needed for your splicing application.
