Sumitomo Fusion Splicer – Type-39 – Core Alignment Fusion Splicer

Sumitomo’s Type-39 FastCat core alignment fusion splicer is the industry’s first fusion splicer to feature a Dual-Automatic Heater System featuring Auto Start Heater and Auto Start Splice functions – making the Sumitomo Type-39 FastCat the fastest splicer available today.

The Sumitomo Type-39 FastCat’s advanced electronic design, which accomodates the built-in dual heating system and simultaneous operation, reduces the bottle neck of “heater wait time” by 88 percent. With an individual heater cycle time of only 30 seconds (60mm Fiber Protection Sleeves) and a splice cycle of only 9 seconds, the Type-39 FastCat improves splicing efficiency by 70 percent.

The Type-39 FastCat is a fully automatic, highly portable, self-contained instrument for creating quick and effortless low-loss optical fiber splices in any environment with a typical splice loss of only .02(dB) for identical single-mode fiber. It is designed to work with virtually all fiber types including single-mode, multimode, dispersion shifted and other specialty fibers.

The Type-39 utilizes precision High-resolution Direct Core Monitoring (HDCM) technology to form repeatable low-loss splice results. HDCM and Dual Heater technologies, combined with Sumitomo Electric’s track record for reliability and customer support, make the Type-39 FastCat the industry’s new standard for core alignment fusion splicers.
