The Fujikura FSM-50S Fusion Splicer sets the standard for core alignment fusion splicers. The FSM-50S is the fastest field splicer available, and can complete a splice and tube heat in a total of 44 seconds. Important features include the smallest size and weight in the industryand the legendary ruggedness Fujikura provides.

The FSM-50S also includes user friendly features such as calibration-free arc adjustments (with AUTO splice mode), automatic fiber type identification and reduced operational steps. The Fujikura FSM-50S also offers increased flexibility for various splicing tasks with user-selectable front and back monitor positioning.
Fujikura (AFL Telecommunications) FSM-50S Features
  • Automatic core to core, low-loss splicing regardless of fiber quality or age
  • 9 second splicing time
  • 35 second heat time (60mm sleeve)
  • Wind protector design withstands 30 mph cross wind
  • User selectable monitor position
  • Excellent visibility in bright sunlight with5.6 TFT Color LCD display
  • Multiple pre-programmed modes for specialized splicing
  • Optional data download system to connect splicer to PC (USB port)
  • Automated arc calibration during AUTO mode splicing
