Rent Sumitomo Type-46S


Sumitomo’s Type-46 TomCat plus Fusion Splicer is the industry’s 1st and only fixed v-groove fusion splicer with built-in dual heat shrink ovens featuring automatic splice and heater start functions, making the TomCat plus the fastest v-groove splicer available today.  Like the proven Type-25e TomCat, the TomCat plus utilizes passive diameter alignment splicing technology for repeatable low loss results.

The unit enhances Sumitomo’s standard TomCat Fusion Splicer with enough battery capacity to perform up to 240 splices and heater shrinks per battery charge. The monitor has been increased in size to 5.6”inches and can be easily adjusted 180 degrees for optimal viewing or effective work flow operation. The TomCat plus features auto-start and auto-heater functions, internal memory for up to 2,000 splicing points, and adjustable batterysaving settings.

The TomCat plus is compatible with the latest fiber termination breakthrough — the Lynx2 CustomFit® Splice-on Connector. The Lynx2 Splice-on Connector is the most efficient and economic choice for custom terminations.

The TomCat plus continues Sumitomo’s mission of customer focused engineering by offering the advanced features of legacy splicers with the economic benefits of precision fixed v-groove technology and a user-friendly fiber holder system.
