Furukawa Electric FITEL Launches S179 Core Alignment Fusion Splicer

  • OFS
NASHVILLE, TN — Furukawa Electric and OFS are pleased to introduce the FITEL S179 Hand-Held, Core Alignment Fusion Splicer, which offers powerful performance and delivers fast and reliable optical fiber splicing even under harsh environmental conditions. By combining speed, precision, durability, portability and state of the art communication methods all in one unit, this fusion splicing machine opens the door to an entirely new range of applications. The FITEL S179 Fusion Splicer is completely suitable for use with all Metro, LAN and FTTx fibers, including ultra-bend insensitive fibers.

The FITEL S179 Fusion Splicer's large-capacity battery system helps save time by allowing 200 splicing cycles (splicing/heating) in one charge. A 4.3-inch wide LCD screen with touch panel offers easy and intuitive operation and a proportionately wide splicing chamber makes optical fiber easier to load. For improved visibility in low-light conditions, 3 +1 LED lights illuminate the entire splicing chamber. A detachable left side V-groove makes cleaning and maintenance a breeze.

Designed to Meet the Rigors of Field Work
The user-friendly S179 Fusion Splicer was designed to meet the rigors of use in the field. While a substantially lower profile and lighter weight enhance portability, the splicer's canopy design and ruggedized body provide resistance to shock, water, and dust exposure. A powerful, high propulsion motor (8N) helps ensure stable splicing of even the most rigid indoor and drop cables. Internal battery charging, embedded Near Field Communication (NFC), and Smartphone readiness combine with other features to make the S179 one of the most powerful and user-friendly fusion splicing machines available today.
