Advanced FTTH splicer for single fibre

Paul Boughton

Fujikura Europe has launched the 21S, a new advanced FTTH splicer for single fibre which is the world’s smallest and lightest active V-groove model.

The high-end splicer, which is developed for applications in FTTX, Data Centre, LAN, and Access Network, features a moveable V-groove mechanism for active alignment to deliver improved splicing performance and consistent splicing results.

The latest addition to Fujikura’s splicer family adds to the company’s portfolio to deliver a complete offering of splicing options from the basic, with the 12S, to the very advanced, which is met by the flagship 70S, and everything in between.

In addition to the active V-groove alignment mechanism, the 21S also boasts accurate splice loss estimation and real-time arc calibration functions. Its typical splice time is nine seconds and its tube-heating time is 30 seconds.

At 1.1kg it is lightweight and measures 120 x 189 x 71.3mm. The splicer also has a 4.7inch TFT colour LCD monitor and a built in battery which enables 200 cycles of splice and tube-heating when fully charged.
