Greenlee Communications has unveiled the 910FS Optical Fusion Splicer. The unit will help technicians splice a variety of fiber-optic cables in both indoor and outdoor applications – but will be particularly useful for FTTx networks, the company says. The 910FS has easy-to-change adapters that enable rapid changes from 250-μm bare fiber to 900-μm buffered fiber. It also features dual cameras with 240X magnification and a 5.7-inch color LCD screen. The splicer supports SC and LC splice-on fiber-optic connectors, while its auto core alignment technology reduces preparation time and yields lower connection losses, Greenlee asserts. The 910FS comes with 60 preset splice modes as well as custom user-defined modes. It can store up to 5,000 splice results. The unit is powered by a long-life Li-ion battery. The Greenlee Communications 910FS Optical Fusion Splicer is available as either a standard Fusion Splicer and Cleaver Kit, or a Contractor Fusion Splicer Kit.
