Mass Fusion Splicer
The 90R is a mass fusion splicer capable of splicing up to 16 fiber ribbons. The 90R series is the first of its kind with an innovative user replaceable V-groove assembly which makes cleanliness and application versatility an issue of the past. Spare replaceable V-grooves are supplied as standard item in the 90R kit.
Mass Fusion Technology
The 90R Series has three types of fusion splicers suitable for 4-fiber ribbon, 12-fiber ribbon and 16-fiber ribbon. The each type mass fusion splicer has a wide heating area for maximum fibers that can be spliced. The wide electrode gap melts the fibers uniformly and has real-time arc discharge control by analyzing the arc’s brightness intensity. The 90R series does not have active core alignment mechanisms, however, during the discharge, fiber surface tension effects minimize preexisting offsets.
＊Even if the V groove is exchanged, the ability of maximum number of splice fiber does not change.

Replaceable V groove
The 90R Series mass fusion splicer includes a spare set of V-grooves with electrodes installed and ready to splice as part of the standard package. These spare V-grooves are field replaceable, so your downtime is minimized.
The FH-70 Series fiber holder is compatible with many types of ribbon fiber, such as 0.3mm or 0.4mm thick encapsulated ribbons and 200μm or 250μm coated Spider Web Ribbon (SWR). The 250 µm pitch V-grooves in the FH-70 fiber holder simplify SWR loading and ribbon preparation.
Pitch Conversion Fiber Holder
The pitch conversion fiber holder, FH-70-12PC, enables spacing conversion of individual 200µm coated fibers from a 200µm to 250µm spacing. The pitch converted 200µm fibers can now be loaded in the 90R12 mass fusion splicer.
The RT-02 is a tool which enables quick and easy ribbonization of 12 individual fibers into a temporary ribbon which can be spliced using an 90R12. No glue or adhesive is required when using this ribbonizing tool since the arranged fibers are immediately loaded into the fiber holder. The RT-02 doesn‘t require the user to insert the fibers in the color code sequence, which is necessary with other ribbon arrangement tools. The user can choose any fiber at random, and place in the correct slot by referring to the color code label on the tool. The RS-02 is applicable to ribbonize both 200µm and 250µm coated fibers. It’s also capable of ribbonizing 200µm coated fibers into 250µm spacing ribbon using the FH-70-12PC pitch conversion fiber holder.
Necessary Tools for Mass Fusion Splicing(90R12, 90R16)
Universal Ribbon Stripper
The RS series ribbon strippers are compatible with 200 µm to 400µm coated fibers without replacing the stripper blades.
Available thickness range
Universal Tube Heater
The 90R mass fusion splicer can accommodate a max 6.0mm diameter heat sleeve before shrinking. As a result, it supports a wide range of protection sleeve sizes.
1. Automated Functionality
The automated wind protector and heater clamps support the operator in completing the entire splicing process with minimal manual steps.

2. Simple Sleeve Centering
The 90R mass fusion splicer features simple sleeve positioning with its designated centering area on top of the tube heater.
3. Carrying Case
There are multiple ways to utilize the 90R carrying case. The 90R is ready to use just by opening the case, but it is also possible to use the 90R on top of the carrying case or only with the work tray depending on the work.
4. Work Tray
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.
Active Blade Management Technology
1. Automated Blade Rotation
The 90R 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. Also, the 90R12 fusion splicer can connect to two CT50s and RS03 simultaneously.
2. Blade Life Management
The 90R fusion splicer displays the remaining blade life and informs the user when a blade height change, position change, or new blade is required.
3. Stripping Condition Control
When the user changes the splice mode, e.g. from 12 ﬁber ribbon splice mode to SWR fiber splice mode, the ribbon stripper RS03 automatically changes its heating temperature and time with a wireless command from the splicer.
