An instrument that splices fibers by fusing or welding them, typically by electrical arc.
The process of fusion splicing involves using localized heat to melt or fuse the ends of two optical fibers together.
The splicing process begins by preparing each fiber end for fusion. Fusion splicing requires that all protective coatings be
removed from the ends of each fiber. The fiber is then cleaved using the score-and-break method. The quality of each fiber end is
inspected using a microscope. In fusion splicing, splice loss is a direct function of the angles and quality of the two fiber-end faces.
The basic fusion splicing apparatus consists of two fixtures on which the fibers are mounted and two electrodes. inspection microscope
assists in the placement of the prepared fiber ends into a fusion-splicing apparatus. The fibers are placed into the apparatus, aligned,
and then fused together. Initially, fusion splicing used nichrome wire as the heating element to melt or fuse fibers together.
New fusion-splicing techniques have replaced the nichrome wire with carbon dioxide (CO2) lasers, electric arcs, or gas flames to heat the
fiber ends, causing them to fuse together. The small size of the fusion splice and the development of automated fusion-splicing machines
have made electric arc fusion (arc fusion) one of the most popular splicing techniques in commercial applications.
FiberOptic.com offers the variety of fusion splicing equipment all with the warranty and maintenance service provided by the manufacturer.
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 SpliceMateT, the world's smallest and most portable 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.
