Chessington, UK - Fujikura Europe has launched two new fusion splicers, the 19S and the 19R, to complete its line-up of new field splicer solutions. The 19S and the 19R will be previewed for the first time in London at ECOC 2013 on September 23 to 25.

The 19S has been developed to be a lower cost alternative to the 70S fusion splicer that was launched earlier this year and features a shrink time of only 14 seconds. It is fully ruggedized for resisting shock, dust, and moisture and has a fixed v-groove, which follows the previous successful design. The design also streamlines the steps required to complete splices, resulting in greater productivity.

The features include an automatic and fully programmable wind protector, a multi-function transit case with integrated workstation, and a sheath clamp for fiber holder operation.

It also contains a powerful Lithium-ion battery, capable of up to 180 splices/shrinks. Like the company's other splicers, built-in videos are provided for on-the-go training.

Alongside the 19S, Fujikura Europe will launch the 19R. The 19R is a four-fiber ribbon fusion splicer and as well as the 19S, benefits from a new design that streamlines the steps required to complete splices, resulting in greater productivity. The 19R also has a wind protector, along with a 40-second tube heater, and high capacity Lithium ion battery pack that can manage 110 splices/shrinks.
