Fusion Splicers

The modern fusion splicer is an apparatus consists of two movable fixtures on which the fibers are mounted, two electrodes (3 in the "Ring of Fire" patented by 3SAE), a monitor, a heater, and software to guide the alignment fixtures into position and manage the splicing conditions. The fibers are placed into the apparatus, aligned, and then fused together. Most commonly, fusion splicers use electric arcs to heat the fiber ends, causing them to fuse together. The small size of the fusion splicer and the development of automated core alignment aoftware have made electric arc fusion the default standard in commercial applications.

Ericsson Fusion Splicers
The demands for more specialized and sophisticated splicing equipment for use in industrial applications has increased rapidly. To match this, Ericsson releases a new series of fusion splicers for industrial use.
Fitel Fusion Splicer
The new hand-held unit features an improved heating design that cuts splice-to-heat time by 40 percent, achieving a 9-second splice time and 37-second heat time. The unit is also 40 percent lighter than a conventional unit, yet offers the full functionality and precision of a traditional core-alignment splicer
Fujikura Fusion Splicer
Fujikura FSM-60S Fusion Splicer is the world's most popular fusion splicer, is designed to meet the challenges posed by today's fiber networks. Although small enough to fit in the palm of your hand, it's smart and reliable enough to be used with confidence by inexperienced operators.
Sumitomo Fusion Splicer
The splicer 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 FastCat the industry's new standard for fusion splicers.

OTDRs - Optical Time Domain Reflectometers

An optical time domain reflectometer (OTDR) is aa specialized piece of optoelectronic instrumentation used to characterize the loss over distance of an optical fiber.

An OTDR uses a laser to inject a series of optical pulses into the fiber under test. It also received, from the same end of the fiber, light that is scattered and/or reflected back from points in the fiber where the index of refraction changes. The intensity of the return pulses is measured and integrated as a function of time, and is plotted as a function of fiber length. In the field, an OTDR may be used for estimating the fiber's length,perform acceptance testing on a fiber that has been installed, measuring overall attenuation, or locating events including fusion splices and mated-connectors.
