New Laboratory Splicer Family: FITEL S185


Compact, Affordable Models from Furukawa

LASER COMPONENTS now offers the following splicing units: FITEL S185PM and FITEL S185HS. With these models, the manufacturer Furukawa has started a new product family with inexpensive, compact models for special applications.

The core-centering, three-axis splicer S185PM is designed for polarization-maintaining fibers with diameters from 80 µm to 150 µm and is therefore also suitable for special fibers and high-strength splices. Since the adjustment and rotation precision has been further improved, it is now possible to splice short fiber lengths. In addition, there are numerous new functions that make splicing easier. The FITEL S185PM is easy and intuitive to operate via the integrated touchscreen. The compact device can be equipped with a rechargeable battery on an optional basis and has a WLAN interface for remote control and data transmission.

The S185HS is based on the same platform but does not have rotating sockets for splicing PM fibers. It was designed for applications in which high-precision, high-strength splices are required.

Would you like to see or test the equipment? Visit us at the LASER World of PHOTONICS (Booth B3.303).
