3SAE Technologies featured the industry's newest and most compact fusion splicing equipment for specialty fibers at OFC 2019 in San Diego Mar. 3-7. Designed and manufactured by Furukawa Electric Co. Ltd, the FITEL S185 series provides high precision and low splice loss for specialty fiber splicing.
"We're excited to bring Furukawa's breakthrough design to the North American market. As optical assemblies continue to become smaller in size, the need for correspondingly smaller fusion splicers became clear," said Don Grasso, Chief Executive Officer of 3SAE Technologies. "Conventional models have become bloated, oversized and overpriced. The FITEL S185 series delivers exacting precision and low splice loss in a compact unit half the size of conventional models and at a much more affordable price point. We're proud to offer turnkey sales, service and support for the FITEL S185 product line."
The FITEL S185 series also significantly reduces the length of fiber needed under the windshield and delivers more precise operation for today's compact optical assemblies, fiber lasers and optical sensors. The high capacity battery option provides additional portability and WiFi-enabled operation allows for faster and easier operational control.
The FITEL S185HS and S185PM units are designed specifically for High Strength and Polarization Maintaining fibers ranging from 80µm to 150µm. The FITEL S185LDF and S185PMLDF are designed to handle Large Diameter Fibers and PMLDF ranging from 80µm up to 500µm. They are ideal for manufacturing, research and other specialty fiber splicing applications.
