The 90S+ is a core alignment fusion splicer, setting a new standard in the market for fusion splicing. The 90S+ is packed with a whole host of new and enhanced features, specifically developed to enable faster splice cycle times with higher precision.
Active Fusion Control Technology
1. Active Fusion control by cleave condition
One of main causes of high splice loss is bad cleave end face. The 90S+ analyzes the condition of both L and R cleave end faces and performs optimal fusion control. This new technology improves splice loss significantly and reduces the risk of re-installation.

2. Active Fusion control by fiber brightness
Fusion is easily affected by changes in the environment.
The 90S+ uses real-time fusion parameter control by analyzing the fiber’s brightness intensity during fusion. It contributes to stable, reduced splice loss.
3. Active Fusion control by fiber discrimination
Adequate splice parameters may differ depending on fiber type. The 90S+ automatically applies the optimum splice parameters depending on the ﬁber type.
Active Blade Management Technology
1. Active Blade rotation by motor
The 90S+ and CT50 ﬁber cleaver are enabled with wireless data connectivity. This capability allows automatic cleaver blade rotation when the 90S+ judges the blade is worn. The 90S+ can connect to two CT50s simultaneously.
2. Active Blade life management
The 90S+ displays the remaining blade life and informs the user when a blade height change, position change, or new blade is required.
Enhanced Splice Quality
The below graphs show the number of cleaves on the horizontal line with frequency of large cleave angle, bad cleave shape and no cleave at all. When the frequency of large cleave angle increases, Active Blade Management Technology can detect this increasing ratio point and rotate the blade position automatically. Active Blade Management Technology significantly reduces frequency of large cleave angles occurring but even when it does occur Active Fusion Control Technology can reduce high splice loss by precise fusion control.
The 90S+ can minimize the occurrence of high splice loss and contribute to reduce the risk of re-Installation by using these 2 key technologies together.
Operation Time Reduction
1. Automatic Open-Close Wind protectors
The faster automated features of the 90S+ reduce installation times. With this splicer, an operator can complete the entire splice process from splicing to heating without touching the 90S+ and only moving the fiber.

2. Operation time reduction
The shape of the sheath clamp is optimized for 60mm length protection sleeves. The length from splice point to the edge of the sheath clamp is 30mm. Therefore, it is easy to center the protection sleeve over the splice by using your fingers to reference the splice point.
Automatic heater clamp
3. Fiber retention clamp
The fiber retention clamps support the automated operations. When the sheath clamps open automatically after splicing, the fiber retention clamps gently hold the spliced fiber to keep it from flying out. The retention clamps release when the fiber is lifted by the operator.

4. Operation time reduction
These functions enable the 90S+ to reduce operation time by 50% over the previous model.
1. Carrying Case
There are multiple ways to utilize the 90S carrying case. The 90S+ is ready to use just by opening the case, but it is also possible to use the 90S on top of the carrying case or only with the work tray depending on the work environment.
2. Work Tray
The work tray has many functions. There are two drawers for storage, and the drawers are large enough to store tools or battery packs. Also, the work tray can be divided in two, so it is configurable to fit your work space.
3. Loose Tube Compatibility
The sheath clamp of the 90S+ is compatible with loose tube fiber. The Protrusion part on of the sheath clamp for loose tube fiber engages or retracts by simply changing the switch position with your finger.
4. Tool-less Electrodes and illumination
The 90S+ electrodes come as an “assy” including the fixing screw. You can rotate the screw by hand without tools, enabling easy electrode replacement.
The transparent electrode covers support wider illumination of the v-groove. As the sheath clamp opens on the opposite side of the illumination lamp, the sheath clamp area is illuminated without shadow.
