Furukawa Electric Launches New Fusion Splicer

Furukawa Electric Co., Ltd. has launched the FITELNINJA NJ001 fusion splicer. This hand-held single fiber fusion splicer is ideal for working on LAN (Local Area Network) and FTTx (Fiber to the home/building/node/curb, etc.) connections. As robust as its predecessor the S123C, the FITELNINJA is considerably smaller and lighter offering the operator optimal ease of use, portability and durability. The ongoing expansion of FTTx networks worldwide calls for affordable, compact and light fusion splicers that are also robust and can safely be used in demanding environments including high, narrow or dark places both inside the home and on construction sites. Furukawa Electric has designed the FITELNINJA in order to meet these requirements. The splicing chamber has been redesigned; 4 times more space has been created around the fiber holders, providing enough room for the fingers to facilitate fiber loading. The 3 LED lamps illuminating the splicing chamber make it easier to work in a dark environment. The 4 rubber pads on the corners of the machine increase the shock resistance of the machine.
