The 41S+ is our new active cladding alignment single fibre
V-groove splicer, which takes a step beyond its predecessor with
the inclusion of Active Fusion Control Technology and Active Blade
Management Technology. These two proprietary technologies allow
customers to achieve more consistent and stable low-loss splicing,
reducing the need for rework and re-splicing.
The 41S+ retains all the unique, class-leading features from the
current high-performance flagship line-up of Fujikura splicers,
including quick splice and heat times, fully ruggedized features,
and user customizable settings. The 41S+ offers installers the
convenience of a 5" colour touch-panel display and menu system but
also maintains the traditional easy-to-use button navigation
system. Convenience is further bolstered by the improved v-groove
illumination and the benefit of easy splice protector positioning.
The machine reassures users of reliable splice results using CORE
loss estimation using Warm Image Splicing Technology.
Thanks to integrated Bluetooth connectivity, the 41S+ wirelessly
connects to the CT50 fibre cleaver and enables a range of
pioneering features that will improve the overall installation
time, cost and efficiency for operators. The 41S+ also has the
unique capability to estimate splice loss with greater accuracy,
using its Core Loss Estimation Function.
The issue of poor fibre cleaving due to worn, incorrectly
adjusted or damaged cleaver blades is conveniently dealt with. When
the 41S+ detects a high cleave angle or bad end shape, it sends a
blade position change instruction to the cleaver. The CT50 cleaver
then rotates the cleaver blade automatically to the next position,
restoring optimum cleaving performance.
By utilising the low radio power of Bluetooth technology, other
equipment nearby will not be interfered with. Operators can benefit
from the "always on" technology due to the low power consumption of
the Bluetooth, which means that batteries can last for several
months. In addition to cleave performance, the smart splicer can
also wirelessly monitor the battery and power usage of the CT50
As the latest addition to the Fujikura splicing family, the 41S+
is flexible, smart and efficient and is therefore capable of making
a huge difference to efficiency of users. The easy-to-handle and
operate qualities of this splicer means quick and simple splicing,
with performance never being compromised.
Active Fusion Control Technology
One of main causes of high splice loss is bad cleave end
face quality. The 41S+ analyses the condition of both L and R
cleave end faces and applies optimal fusion control. This new
technology improves splice loss significantly and greatly reduces
the need for rework.
Because fusion is easily affected by changes in the environment,
the 41S+ uses real-time fusion parameter control by analysing the
fibre brightness intensity during splicing. This contributes to
stable, low-loss splice results.
Active Blade Management Technology
The 41S+ and CT50 fibre cleaver are equipped with wireless
data connectivity, which allows automatic cleaver blade rotation
when the 41S+ judges the blade is worn. The 41S+ displays the
remaining blade life and informs the user when a blade height
change, blade position change, or new blade is required.
Enhanced splice quality
When the frequency of large cleave angle or other cleave
problems increases, Active Blade Management Technology can detect
this increasing ratio of poor cleaves and rotate the blade position
automatically. Active Blade Management Technology
therefore significantly reduces the frequency of poor quality
cleaves. Even when a poor cleave is detected, the 41S+ compensates
by using Active Fusion Control Technology to apply
optimized fusion to reduce the incidence of high splice loss. By
using these two key technologies together, the 41S+ minimizes the
occurrence of high splice loss and greatly reduces the need for
rework and re-splicing.
The 41S+ can accommodate splice sleeves with a diameter of
up to 6.0mm, so it supports a wide range of protection sleeve
The 41S+ electrodes comes as an assembly including
electrode mounting fixture and thumb screw. The thumb screw is
easily loosened or tightened by hand without tools, which makes it
simple to replace electrodes.
The CT50 fiber cleaver has a user replaceable blade and
rubber clamps - there's no need to send the device to a service
centre for blade or clamp replacement.
Multi-functional carrying case with integrated
There are multiple ways to utilize the 41S+ carrying case.
The 41S+ is ready to use just by opening the case, but can be
removed with the work tray, or the tray can be placed on top of the
carrying case or other work surface, mounted it on a tripod, etc.
The work tray has a drawer which can slide open to expand the work
area and it includes convenient features such as a recess to lock
an included alcohol dispensing bottle in place to prevent it from
