Fujikura Europe to launch new line of Bluetooth enabled fusion splicers at ECOC 2017

The 70S+ and 70R+ models are Bluetooth enabled and compatible with the recently launched “Splice+” Smartphone application

Chessington, UK. 11 September 2017: Leaders in connectivity and splicing technology, Fujikura Europe will be launching a new line of Bluetooth enabled splicers at ECOC 2017 in Gothenburg, Sweden – the largest market in Europe for ribbon splicing.

The new core alignment single fibre optical fusion splicer, the 70S+, and the new twelve fibre ribbon optical fibre fusion splicer, the 70R+, are welcome additions to the original line of Fujikura fusion splicers, with the introduction of Bluetooth integration which allows the splicer to pair via the accompanying “Splice+” Smartphone application.

These smart splicers can detect cleave and strip condition, monitor battery and power usage, and retain the unique, class-leading features from the original high-performance flagship line-up, including: fully automatic wind protector and improved heater, user customisable settings, ruggedized exterior which is dust, shock and rain resistant, and true core-alignment splice performance. The splicers also include a three year warranty as standard, supported by Fujikura’s fully trained network of distributors.

Also being presented at ECOC 2017 alongside the 70S+ and 70R+ will be the new RS02 and RS03 Ribbon Fibre Strippers, which are suitable for use with all Fujikura models of splicers. Featuring Bluetooth connectivity and Smartphone app capabilities, and with a typical heating time of just three seconds and an auto adjusting heat sensor to monitor temperature and heating time, the RS Strippers are the perfect accessories for fast, smooth and efficient stripping. The RS03 comes equipped with new features such as large capacity battery for 600 stripping cycles – six times larger than a conventional stripper – and a wireless link with Smartphones for operational parameter adjustment. Developed to suit the stripping and splicing needs of Fujikura’s SpiderWeb® ribbon technology, the RS02 and 03 can both effectively and reliably strip up to twelve fibres, making them an essential investment.

“Our fusion splicers, connectors and cabling products can make a real difference to clients’ networks by providing an accessible and efficient solution without compromising performance,” said Neil Bessant, Fusion Splicer Divisional Manager at Fujikura Europe. “With ECOC 2017 taking place in Europe’s largest market for ribbon splicing, we are especially looking forward to launching our newest splicers as well as showcasing our other world-leading technology and the potential it offers to ECOC attendees.”

A full range of Fujikura Europe’s fibre optic solutions will also be on display at the company’s booth (#439) at ECOC, including the original 70S and 12S fibre optic splicers, the ever-popular 22S, as well as a range of other specialty splicers, cable connectors, cleaners and cabling solutions.
