Fujikura launches 21S compact fusion splicer

Fujikura Europe has launched the 21S, an advanced single-fibre splicer that it claims is the smallest and lightest active V-groove model on the market.

The compact splicer, which has been developed for FTTx, access network, data centre and LAN applications, features a moveable V-groove mechanism for active alignment to improve splicing performance and give consistent splicing results.

Fibercore expands range of specialty fibre coatings

Fibercore, the UK-based developer of specialty optical fibres, will be officially releasing its new harsh environment graded-index pure silica core multimode fibre product at the Photonics West exhibition on 10-12 February.

3SAE offers micro-diameter soft-glass splicing services

3SAE Technologies, a provider of advanced fibre-optic preparation tools and glass processing equipment, announced today the expansion of its custom and standard fibre splicing and glass processing services and the addition of a new proprietary splicing service for soft-glass micro-fiber diameters ranging from 80µm to less than 25µm.

R&M combines platforms for breakout and splice cables

Swiss cabling specialist R&M is putting a new generation of patch boxes for fiber optic networks on the market. With these platforms for 19" racks, you can terminate up to 48 fibers in one unit (1U). For the first time, a common basic model accommodates both breakout cabling and splice cabling. FibereasyRack 2 is the name of the version for breakout cabling. It contains a loose tube tray. The version for splice cabling is called UniRack 2 and contains a removable splice tray plate.

Fujikura introduces fibre recoater series

CHESINGTON SOUTH, UK: Fujikura is introducing a new series of Fujikura fibre recoaters – the FSR-05, FSR-06 and FSR-07. The recoaters feature easy-to-exchange moulds for common coating sizes including 196 µm, 255 µm, 280 µm, 450 µm, 670 µm and 1,000 µm. All recoaters consist of a programmable resin injection quantity and colored and non-colored fibre recoating capability. The FSR-06 and FSR-07 recoaters include proof testers to test the strength of fibre after recoating. 

Fujikura CT- 105/106

Fujikura has launched a new line of high precision large diameter fibre (LDF) cleavers designed for fusion splicing and glass processing preparation.

The Fujikura CT- 105/106 are the first devices for Fujikura in the range  to go on sale, and will provide advanced cleaving solutions for end-users in fibrelaser and optical fibre sensor applications  - across the oil and gas, university, R&D, submarine cabling, defence, optical components and medical markets.

Multicore Fibre

Fibercore, a UK-based provider of specialty optical fibre, has developed a new capability for the fabrication of multicore fibres. The standard product used for demonstration has four cores, but the fabrication method allows for virtually any practical configuration, spacing and number of cores.

In the telecoms sector, multicore fibers can be used to reduce the amount of space required and increase the bandwidth of cables used in datacentres and exchanges.
