Fusion splicer

Programmable fiberoptic fusion splicer, Fusion 2000, automatically aligns, gaps, and fuses fibers in 35 s. The unit combines the low loss and accurate loss estimation of a local-injection-and-detection splicer with a profile-alignment-system splicer?s ability to splice all standard colors of coatings. Average splice loss is less than 0.02 dB on single-mode fiber, position resolution is 0.05 ?m, and the device estimates extrinsic splice loss within ?0.02 dB 90% of the time.
