What Do You need to Know About Fiber Optic Fusion Splicer?

Date: 2023-02-03 13:59:00

Fusion Splicing is a preferred method to weld two fibers together by using heat. Whether the fiber optic cable is broken or damaged, a fiber optic fusion splicer will make your job easier by repairing the fiber optic cable. This article provides some knowledge of fiber optic fusion splicers. 

What is Fiber Optic Fusion Splicer?
The fiber optic fusion splicer is an automatic machine that uses high-temperature heat generated by an electric arc and welds (fuses) two fibers together. In addition, the fiber optic fusion splicer uses high-speed image processing and precision positioning technology to automate the whole process of fiber fusion in 6/9 seconds.

Types of Fiber Optic Fusion Splicers

1. Single Fiber Optic Fusion Splicer
Single fiber optic fusion splicer can splice fibers between 250 and 900-Micron, flat drop cables, and splice on connectors. It can only split two fibers at a time. One fiber is stripped, cleaned, cleaved, and inserted into the machine. The same process is used for the second fiber.
2. Core Alignment Fiber Optic Fusion Splicer
Core alignment fiber optic fusion splicer uses image and light detection to look at the fiber cores to measure and monitor the core position while aligning the fiber cores. It provides a precise fiber alignment, with a typical splice loss of only 0.02 dB.
3. Mass Fiber Optic Fusion Splicer
Mass or ribbon fiber optic fusion splicer is capable of splicing up to 1/4/12/16 fiber ribbons at a time.

4. Clad Alignment Fiber Optic Fusion Splicer  
Clad alignment fiber opticfusion splicer uses a fixed V-Groove to align the fibers based on the claddings of the fibers being spliced. 

Fiber optic fusion splicer is used in feeder fiber optic cable splicing, fiber optic network installation and maintenance, fiber optic device manufacture and testing, fiber optic communications teaching and research, LAN, FTTx networks, data centers, long-haul networks, etc.


The fiber optic fusion splicer has high precision, low-loss splice, is durable, and is easy to use.It is mainly used in FTTx networks and other fiber optic cable installation and maintenance projects. Sun Telecom specializes in providing one-stop total fiber optic solutions for all fiber optic application industries worldwide.
