The Fujikura FSM-12S Fiber Optic Fusion Splicer is the smallest, lightest, and most portable splicer in the world. The robust chassis features shock, dust and moisture protection while the two camera observation system provides for accurate fiber alignment and loss estimation calculations. Weighing less than two pounds and having a footprint of approximately 6" x 5", the 12S provides users with an unprecedented level of flexibility for the most challenging splicing applications. The functional transit case also serves as a workstation when needed. The large 4.5" scratch resistant monitor is viewable in direct sunlight. Software updates are accomplished via the internet, allowing users to quickly and conveniently update their software as new splice programs become available. The Fujikura FSM-12S fiber optic fusion splicer is also fully compatible with the FuseConnect line of fusion installable connectors. To cap off all these great features, a long life battery and extended life electrodes keep you up and running when you need it most.
