INNO Instrument Inc. says the new IFS-15H fusion splicer is compact, fast, and easy to use. It is capable of splicing flat or round fiber-optic cables as well as splice-on fiber-optic connectors, and offers many more features, the company adds. INNO prides itself on offering top quality, high production fusion splicers for FTTx applications around the world, enabling communities and companies to increase their productivity and cut costs. Improved productivity, shorter splicing times, and more average arcs per set of electrodes are some of the reasons the IFS series splicers are taking market share, the company claims. INNO says the IFS-15H is a compact, yet more versatile unit, weighing only 1.82 kg without the battery, and performing as well as many of its heftier competitors. “Don't let the size fool you - it is waterproof, shockproof, and dust proof, making it one of the toughest splicers available, at a price that has the competitors re-thinking their profit margins,” the company wrote. The INNO IFS-15 is available through global distributor eFiberTools.com. For more information on splicing equipment and suppliers, visit the Lightwave Buyer’s Guide.
