Mass Fusion Splicer
The 41R is designed for high mobility and includes a wireless communication function, “Active Blade Management Technology”, where the splicer is connected to and monitors the fiber cleaver and ribbon fiber stripper.
This functionality greatly prevents operators from making a bad splice due to a worn-out blade position. In addition, both the heating temperature and heating time of the ribbon fiber stripper are automatically changed according to the splice mode setting.
Active Fusion Control Technology
1. Active Fusion control by fiber count
The 41R automatically determines the number of optical fibers from a single to maximum of 4 fiber ribbon. It minimizes splice loss by performing fusion splicing according to the number of fibers.
2. Active Fusion control in real-time
The 41R features real-time fusion power control by analyzing the fiber’s brightness intensity during splicing. Therefore, it can splice the fiber using appropriate fusion parameters. The 41R does not have active core alignment mechanisms, however, during fusion, fiber surface tension effects minimize preexisting offsets.
Active Blade Management Technology
1.Active Blade rotation by motor
The 41R fusion splicer and CT50 ﬁber cleaver are enabled with wireless data connectivity. This capability allows automatic cleaver blade rotation when the splicer judges the blade is worn.
2. Active Blade life management
The 41R fusion splicer displays the remaining blade life and informs the user when a blade height change, position change, or new blade is required.
1. Simple sleeve centering
The 41R mass fusion splicer features simple sleeve positioning with its designated centering area on top of the tube heater.
2. Universal Tube Heater
The 41R mass fusion splicer can accommodate a max 6.0mm (before shrinking) diameter protection sleeve. As a result, it supports a wide range of protection sleeve sizes.
3. Easy replacement of consumable parts
3-1 Tool-less Electrode replacement
The 41R electrode comes as an assembly including the fixing screw. The screw can be tightened by hand without tools, enabling easy electrode replacement.
Electrode replacement without tools
3-2 Easy Maintenance
The CT50 fiber cleaver has a user replaceable blade and rubber clamps – there’s no need to send the device to a service center for blade or clamp replacement.
4. Carrying Case
There are multiple ways to utilize the 41R carrying case. The 41R is ready to use just by opening the case, but it is also possible to place the tray on top of the carrying case or only with the work tray depending on the work environment.
5. Work Tray
The tray incorporates a drawer which can be slid open to provide more work-space. A locking mechanism is also provided which secures the alcohol pot in place.
