What is Fujikura 88S+ Fusion Splicer

Fujikura 88S+

The Fujikura 88S+ is a fusion splicer with high-precision lenses that provide accurate core-to-core alignment. Additionally, these lenses allow the splicer to discriminate between fiber types.

The 88S+ features advanced image processing technology that analyzes the fiber image profile as a brightness pattern. This tool finds the true core location and achieves consistent lower splice loss. The device features a fiber discrimination function: it automatically identifies the optimal arc discharge parameters depending on the fiber type.

Fujikura FSM-88S+

The Fujikura 88S+ is a new core alignment fusion splicer with faster automation features. The 88S+ Fusion Splicer's fast automatic features minimize installation times. The 88S+Fusion Splicer automatically identifies the optimum arc discharge parameters based on the plum type. The sheath clamp for the 88S+ Fusion Splicer is compatible with loose tube fibers.

Fujikura 88s+ Splicing Machine

The 88S+ Fusion Splicer and CT50 Fiber Cleaver are enabled with wireless data connectivity. This capability allows for automatic cleaver blade rotation when the cleaver disengages its blade. In addition, the 88S+ Fusion Splicer can connect to two CT50s simultaneously. It has a 4.9-inch TFT touchscreen. The 88S+ is also equipped with Active Blade Management Technology and Active Fusion Control Technology.

  • The lid of the carrying case may be used as a work table.
  • Splicing time: 7-9 sec (SM FAST mode).
  • Heat time: 13-15 sec (for 60 mm sleeves)
  • The sheath clamp is compatible with loose tube fiber.
  • Fiber discrimination function.
  • The faster automated features.
  • Time for opening wind protector is 80% lower comparing to the Fujikura 80S.
  • Time for placing fiber into heater is 50% lower comparing to the Fujikura 80S.
  • Wireless data connectivity allows automatic cleaver blade rotation when the splicer judges the blade is worn.
  • Increased electrode lifetime – up to 5000 splicing cycles with one set.
  • Blade life management: the device displays the remaining blade life, informs about blade height and position change, and when new blade is required.
  • Plenty of space in the carrying case. There are two drawers for storage, and the work tray can be divided into two separate places.
