Type-71C Datasheet
The Sumitomo Type-71C Direct Core Monitoring Fusion Splicer was developed on the basis of the concept of "ultra fast splicing in every environment." While compact, lightweight, rugged and durable, the TYPE-71C is capable of the fastest splice cycle time. Its touch screen display and remote support via internet enhance user friendliness, making the splicer simple and versatile. TYPE-71C has dual independent heaters to reduce splice cycle time. TYPE-71C marks the new standard for fusion splicers.
