New AFL 41S and 31S Fusion Splicers and CT50 Fiber Cleaver
AFL introduces two new fusion splicer models, the Fujikura 41S Core Sensing fusion splicer and the 31S. Both feature touchscreen technology and active cladding alignment capability, simplifying use and greatly reducing the need for rigorous cleaning in typical field conditions. The Fujikura 41S adds more accurate core sensing loss estimation capabilities enabled by Warm Splice Imaging (WSI) and incorporates active cleaver management via Bluetooth® technology.
The Fujikura 41S model enhanced loss estimation technology allows evaluation of core alignment during the splice and unprecedented accuracy with a cladding alignment type splicer. The splicer also features Bluetooth communication for use with the new CT50 fiber cleaver. In an industry first, cleaver blade positions can be advanced automatically based on cleave quality assessment in the 41S splicer. Both the 41S and 31S models offer legendary Fujikura ruggedness and quality.
The touchscreen technology of these splicers provides a convenient method to navigate device menus. The six-second splice time combined with a twenty-five second heating time increases productivity. Both models are equipped with removable sheath clamps allowing users to utilize fiber holders if desired.
