Fujikura Europe has announced that it has expanded its fibre fusion splicer range with the launch of a new product – the 62S. The latest addition to Fujikura’s splicer family adds to the company’s portfolio to deliver a complete offering of splicers and accessories for the telecom and speciality markets. This includes the popular 12S (FTTH splicer) and the ultra-compact 22S (Advanced FTTH splicer), as well as the market-leading, flagship 70S (core-alignment splicer).

The 62S is a dependable, high specification core-alignment splicer, which delivers a shrink time of 15 seconds. It is also very robust, withstanding a 30 inch drop test on five sides.

“Our new 62S is a great addition to our product line up and demonstrates our knowledge and experience of developing new splicing technology,” said Neil Bessant, Fusion Splicer Divisional Manager at Fujikura Europe. “We have been making high quality, unparalleled products since 1978 and pride ourselves on always delivering the speeds and performance detailed on the specification sheet.”

The 62S sits beneath the flagship 70S in Fujikura’s portfolio. Specifically designed for speed, durability and ergonomics, the 70S is the fastest splicer on the market, with a splicing time of just six seconds and an improved shrink time of nine seconds.

The 70S has a rugged construction design to provide the highest reliability by resisting shock, rain and dust, allowing it to withstand a 30 inch drop test on six sides. It also features a fully automatic wind protector and automated tube heater developed to reduce the number of operational steps and provide quicker splicing cycles. The unit includes a high-resolution LCD monitor, powerful Li-ion battery for longer operation time and built-in videos for on-the-go training.

In comparison the 62s offers traditional style with manual wind protector and conventional tube heater but still offers high-speed splicing. “We have a range of robust, reliable, technologically advanced splicers and accessories, as well as an unparalleled ability to distribute our products globally,” said Bessant. “The 62S is a great addition to our line-up.”
