The X77 Fusion Splicer is Corning Cable Systems’ best-selling unit. Like its predecessor, the M90 fusion splicer, the X77 offers the core alignment accuracy of Corning Cable Systems’ LID-SYSTEM® Unit and the speed of a Profile Alignment System. With the increasing number of applications for splicing dissimilar and specialty fibers, the LID-SYSTEM Unit is a necessity for low loss splices. The X77 fusion splicer is the perfect combination of precision operation and ease of use, both in a cost-effective machine. The recent addition of patented maintenance-free electrodes provides even more value by eliminating the time spent cleaning and replacing electrodes.
The accuracy of the LID-SYSTEM Unit eliminates the timeconsuming task of evaluating splices with an Optical Time Domain Reflectometer (OTDR) while splicing. The X77 fusion splicer utilizes Automatic Fusion Time Control by monitoring in real time the relative power level through the splice and ends fusing when splice loss is at a minimum. With the addition of the X77’s pigtail adapter, the craftsperson is able to apply the accuracy of the LID-SYSTEM Unit when splicing pigtails.
The X77 fusion splicer offers programs for single-mode and multimode splicing. While the standard parameters are preset at the factory in three fixed programs and eight specialty, every individual parameter can be freely programmed by the operator in the 10 user-defined programs. Up to 250 splice loss values can be stored for downloading to a text file for system records. Messages and splice loss results are shown on the X77’s 5.5-in high resolution LCD display with contrast adjustment. A tilt stand on the attachment power supply provides improved viewing and operation orientation.
