Furukawa Introduces FITEL NINJA Fusion Splicer

  • OFS
ANAHEIM, CA — Furukawa Electric, a manufacturer of fiber optic products, and OFS, a provider of optical fiber cable, introduced the FITEL NINJA NJ001 handheld fusion splicer, designed for FTTH applications. The NINJA NJ001 is designed to be user friendly for today's FTTH technician. Combining portability and ease of use in a ruggedized body, the NJ001 offers powerful splicing performance with the durability needed for use in the field.

The NINJA has a list of compelling features for FTTH network splicing including the following:

  • Detachable V-groove – The NINJA's detachable V-groove enables the technician to remove and thoroughly clean this critical part in minutes, allowing the technician to get back to splicing quicker, which accelerates deployments while driving down splicing costs. Dirty V-grooves are the number one reason a splicer is sent in for repair. The NINJA's detachable grooves enable the technician to keep the splicer cleaner and in operation longer between scheduled maintenance visits.

  • Wide splicing chamber – Today's technician is in a hurry. The NINJA features a wider splicing chamber for faster and easier fiber loading, making this one of the most user-friendly splicers available.

  • Improved splicing chamber visibility – Work doesn't stop just because the sun goes down. Three LED lights illuminate the entire splicing chamber with more than 300 Lux. This light intensity improves visibility, making it easier to perform work in low-light environments.

  • Powerful motors for stable splicing – FTTH drop cables are often stiff. Weak splicer motors can require the technician to perform more cable prep to offset the motor weakness. The NINJA has powerful fiber propulsion motors to complete splices with even very rigid drop cables.

  • Lens protection cover – This protective cover makes the cleaning work for lens much easier for technicians and is a unique feature to this splicing model.

  • Fusion splice-on connector compatible With fusion splice-on connectors gaining acceptance as a way to field terminate cables, the NINJA compatible with fusion splice-on field installable connectors from a wide variety of manufacturers.

  • Large battery capacity to keep field technicians going – While the NJ001 design is compact and low profile, its large battery capacity allows 100 splicing and heating cycles in one charge.

  • Removable heater bracket – This allows the heater to perform ST & FC field installable connectors, thus eliminating the need for an external heater.
