Fujikura FSM-18R Fusion Splicer

The Fujikura FSM-18R fusion spliceris a 4-fiber ribbon splicer which is well-suited for FTTx or LAN applications. The FSM-18R can splice up to 4 fibers as well as capably handling single fiber splices. Its rugged construction and enhanced robust features provide resistance to shock, dust and rain to minimize downtime and improve operational performance. It has also been tested to withstand a 30" drop test.

Automated features such as auto-start splicing, auto-start tube heater operation, automatic ribbon fiber identification and auto-arc calibration reduce operational steps and improve splicing performance. Additional improvements include automatic image orientation when switching the dual position monitor, a large capacity battery option and the ability to charge the battery during splicer operation.

The software included with each FSM-18R splicer provides 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.
