The 21S active cladding alignment fusion splicer bridges the long standing gap between core alignment and fixed v-groove fusion splicer technology. Moveable v-grooves eliminate splicer errors due to dust and other contaminants. Long life battery provides power for up to 200 splice cycles which include application of the splice protection sleeve.
The electrode life has been extended to 3,000 splices, minimizing downtime for replacement and stablization. The fully ruggedized chassis provides for shock, dust and moisture protection while the two camera observation system provides for accurate fiber alignment and loss estimation calculations. The 21S is also fully compatible with the FuseConnect line of fusion installable connectors.
