FSM-18S Fusion Splicer

The FSM-18S Fusion Splicer is a low cost, fixed V-groove, single fiber fusion splicer with the same robust features offered in other high end models.

The new rugged construction adds improved reliability by resisting shock, dust, and rain, and withstands a 30" drop test.New features such as automatic tube heater operation, user-selectable clamping method (sheath clamp or fiber holder system), automated monitor image orientation, and battery charge capability during splicer operation provide the end user a reliable productivity tool.
New software is included with each splicer and provides the user with the ability to download splice data to a PC for splice data reporting, download splicer operating software via the internet to maintain peak performance, and download video images from the splicer to enhance technical support.


 
Features
  • Rugged construction providing shock, dust and moisture resistance
  • Automatic arc calibration
  • Dual monitor position with automatic image orientation
  • User-selectable fiber clamping method – sheath clamp or fiber holders
  • Auto-start tube heater
  • Color LCD display and anti-reflective coating for excellent visibility in bright sunlight.
  • Long life battery (up to 150 splice/heat cycles per charge)
  • Data and video download software and splicer upgrade software included;
  • software upgrades through PC application via the internet
  • Simultaneous battery charge and splicer operation.
  • Detachable work table incorporated into the transit case.
  • Green friendly – RoHS & WEEE compliant
