Fujikura 41S Splicer

The Fujikura 41S is a fully ruggedized, two camera, dynamic cladding alignment fusion splicer with Active Blade Management Technology. (A world First). Core Sensing Loss estimation technology provides the most accurate assessment of splice loss available in any active cladding alignment splicer in the world.

Enabled by Warm Splice Imaging (WSI), the 41S can determine the accuracy of core alignment by evaluation of the splice during the heating process. This technology delivers splice loss estimates with a greater level of accuracy as those based on only cladding alignment.

State-of-the-art cleaver management via Bluetooth® connection with the CT50 Cleaver tracks usage and enables automated blade rotation as needed. The dual-camera, active V-groove alignment system provides consistent splicing performance in the most challenging conditions.

A 6-second splice time and 25-second shrink time offers unmatched speed and productivity, while an easy-to-use touchscreen monitor provides simple and intuitive menu navigation.

The extended-life battery is rated for up to 200 splice and heat cycles. Long-life electrodes, lasting 5,000 splices, help minimize downtime for replacement and stabilization. The large 5″ monitor provides a crystal-clear image, even in the brightest sunlight.

Software updates are accomplished via the internet allowing users to quickly update their software as new splice programs become available.

Backed by the best service team in the industry, the Fujikura 41S is the ideal splicer to use when portability, ruggedness, and reliability are needed for your splicing application.
