Active Fusion Control Technology:
· Active Fusion control by cleave condition
One of the main causes of high splice loss is bad cleave and face quality. The Fujikura 48S analyzes the condition of both L and R cleave end faces, then applies optimal fusion control, thus improving splice loss significantly and also greatly reducing the need for rework.
· Active Fusion control by fiber brightness
Fusion gets easily affected by changes in the environment. The Fujikura 48S uses real time fusion parameter control by analyzing intensity of fiber brightness during splicing, thus contributing to stable & low splice loss results.

User Friendliness:
· Easy Fiber Protection Sleeve Positioning
The Fujikura 48S sheath clamp's shape is optimized for 60mm length protection sleeve. The length from the splice point to the edge of the sheath clamp is 30mm. Therefore, it is easy to center the protection sleeve after splicing just by using your finger as a reference point.
· Universal Tube Heater
The 48S fusion splicer supports a wide range of protection sleeve sizes of diameter up to 6.0mm.
· Tool-less Electrodes replacement
The 48S electrode comes as a full assembly which includes electrode mounting fixture and thumb screw, where the thumb screw can be easily loosened or tightened just by hand without any tools, thus enabling an easy electrode replacement.
