Sumitomo Electric Lightwave Introduces New Quantum V-Groove Fusion Splicer with Industry First and Only Advancements Business Wire RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C. -- July 16, 2013 Sumitomo Electric Lightwave (www.sumitomoelectric.com), a major leader in the design and manufacturing of optical fiber and connectivity solutions, today announced the introduction of the Quantum Type-Q101-VS™ V-Groove Fusion Splicer, the third splicer launched in its Quantum Splicer product line. The design of the Quantum VS is based on the market demand for an advanced, yet economically affordable, fusion splicer that provides the speed, performance and efficiencies for data center, enterprise, FTTx, OEM, and communication network applications. The Quantum Type-Q101-VS V-Groove Fusion Splicer is the industry’s only V-groove splicer with patented dual independent heat shrink ovens that eliminate the heat waiting time for streamlined, consecutive splices—making the splicer one of the fastest V-Groove splicers that increases splicing efficiency by 70%. Like the Quantum Type-Q101-CA Core Alignment fusion splicer and the Quantum Type-Q101-M12 Mass fusion splicer, the Quantum VS is the only v-groove splicer with a fully functional touch-screen interface, making splicer function navigation more intuitive, faster, and easier than traditional keypad interfaces. Like its predecessors, the Quantum VS incorporates both the touch-screen and keypad interfaces to offer technicians a preferred choice. Like all Quantum fusion splicers, the Quantum VS is also the industry’s only v-groove splicer with internet interface for 24/7 remote maintenance, an SD port for virtually unlimited data storage, and the capability of downloading and uploading work related splicing project data, training videos, audio, and software. The key feature of this splicer is that it incorporates these industry-only advanced features, yet is one of the most competitively priced v-groove splicers on the market. Without compromising full splicing functionality, performance, and ruggedness, the Quantum VS is compact at 120w x 154D x 130H mm and weighs only 2.1kg with battery, making it easier to carry and work within the many small, confined spaces characterizing the data center, enterprise network, FTTx and outside plant work environments. Despite its small footprint and light weight, the Quantum VS boasts the industry’s largest 640 x 320 fiber view and longest electrode life, while complying with the most stringent shock, waterproof, and dust resistance requirements. “We are pleased to offer our customers the most technologically advanced v-groove splicer while making it one of the most affordable to own,” comments Dwayne Holst, product manager for the Lightwave Network Products division at Sumitomo Electric Lightwave. “Our goal is to listen to our customers’ valuable input and to design fusion splicers with our history of unwavering commitment to product and service reliability that ultimately offers our customers what they have asked for; the best and most advanced fusion splicing technology with 24/7 service and support. The consistent achievement of this goal is the foundation of the Quantum fusion splicer line’s success.” The new splicer is compatible with the Lynx2 CustomFit® Splice-On Connectors for customized, on-site cable builds and terminations. Orders and shipping for the unit are immediately available.
