The S182A is specifically designed for splicing fiber of the same mode field diameter. The unit’s optimized design – with function keys and LCD monitor located behind the splicing area – provides you with uncluttered, efficient access to the splicing area for maximum productivity. The attenuation function can also be automated with optional PC-remote control software.
The S182A does not touch the bare portion of the fiber, can accommodate 3- to 5-mm cleave lengths and, when used with FITEL’s High Strength Splicing Kits, provides a high-strength splice with an average tensile strength of 20N. The unit can also be used for non-high strength applications.
The keypad and monitor are mounted in the rear, giving the user easy access to the plice chamber and protection sleeve oven.
The overall shape of the splicer is rectangular with a flat top for easy incorporation into the work table.
When used with the correct high-strength accessories, the S182A/K prevents bare fiber from touching the v-grooves to yield high tensile strength results.
Remote control software is available for hands-free operation from a PC.
