Fujikura to demonstrate range of fusion splicers and optical solutions at ECOC 2015!

22 September 2015

Chessington South, UK. September 16, 2015.Fujikura Europe has announced that it will be showcasing its latest fibre splicing technology at ECOC 2015.

Among the products on show will be the new 22S splicer - the World's smallest and lightest active v-groove machine

The 22S - the latest addition to Fujikura's splicer range - is designed for high-end FTTH applications including; FTTX, Data Centre / LAN and Access Networks. The active v-groove alignment system offers users reliable and improved splicing performance for a range of different fibres such as SMF, MMF, DSF, and NZDSF in a compact and lightweight package

The improved 70S - Fujikura's gold standard single fibre splicer - will also be exhibited at this year's show.

Specifically designed for ease of use and durability, the 70S is the fastest splicer on the market with a splicing time of just six seconds and a class leading shrink time of just nine seconds. Its rugged construction provides resistance to rain, dust and shock - enabling it to withstand a 30 inch drop test on all six sides. Unique features include an automatic wind protector and tube heater which reduce the number of operational steps and splice time, whilst the powerful Li-ion battery provides extended operational time. Clear images are displayed on a high-resolution LCD monitor and built-in videos guides are provided for user on-site training and support.

"We are delighted to announce that our newest splicer and our gold standard splicer will be on display at Europe's flagship optical conference," said Neil Bessant, Fusion Splicer Divisional Manager of Fujikura Europe. "We have designed the 70S to be ergonomic, and have great durability whilst reducing splicing time to just six seconds, whilst the 22S delivers high-quality splicing without a high-end price tag. Fujikura has been developing innovative, class leading fusion splicers since the 1970's and our current family of machines are the result of that evolution. They are designed to provide customers with a high performance but easy to use product. I am sure visitors will be impressed by the comprehensive range of telecom and speciality splicers and equipment we have on show."

Fujikura will also be promoting our FLP-G series of high power (75W) pulsed fibre lasers for the OEM market. Our patented, unique optical design provides many end user benefits including unprecedented deep engraving capabilities on high-melting-point metals.  Light and compact, the FLP-G series offers laser machines/systems much greater flexibility in assembly.

Alongside the 22S, 70S and FLP-G series at ECOC 2015 will be a range of Fujikura's splicing accessories, an expanded portfolio of optical test equipment and passive solutions for Fibre-to-the-Home (FTTH) installations.

FTTH is a technology that uses fibre optic cable to deliver telephone, data and video services from the operator`s transmitter equipment to the end user`s home or business. Fibre optic cables have the capacity for an incredible amount of data, which is becoming a necessity in today's world.
