Mass-fusion splicer

The Type-63 is a 9-lb mass-fusion splicer with an optical system that focuses on 12 fiber images with the same resolution to allow loss predictions across the splice. According to the manufacturer, the splicer can complete a 12-fiber ribbon splice in less than 42 sec. A built-in "sleep" mode conserves battery power when the unit is not performing a splice. Up to 100 splice data points can be stored for printing at a later time.
