TOKYO -- The Furukawa Electric Co., Ltd. announces the launch of the world’s fastest, smallest and lightest 24-fiber Mass Fusion Splicer (FITEL S199M24). Primarily targeted for the North American market, FITEL’s S199M24 is capable of fusing up to 24-fibers simultaneously.

The FITEL S199M24 Mass Fusion Splicer is the smallest and lightest machine in its product category. The S199M24 weighs only 3.4kg and has the same body size (150W x 150H x 150D[mm]) as the FITEL S199M12. In addition, the splice time for SM fiber is only 40 seconds, which makes it the fastest in its product category. All these features are realized by using a compact optical observation unit (newly developed lens system) and a compact power supply which can provide a greater arc discharge power for 24-fiber ribbon splicing.

The machine can handle not only single mode 24-fiber ribbon but also non-zero dispersion shifted (NZDS) 24-fiber ribbon among others (such as MM fiber, etc.). By replacing the proper parts called the Fiber Holders, the S199M24 covers single fiber up to 24-fiber ribbon (including 2-, 4-, 6-, 8-, 10- 12-fiber ribbon).
