Fiber Optic Fusion Splicer Fujikura, Sumitomo, Fitel, Corning & Ericsson Fiber Splicers

Fiber Optic Cables might have to be spliced, when?

  • Link of a particular length. Another
  • A fiber Optic cable might have been ripped apart due to trenching work.
  • Network installer might have in his inventory several fiber Optic cables, none long enough to satisfy the required link length.
  • A link of 10 km can be installed by Fusion Splicing several Fiber Optic cables together.
  • Fiber Splices might be required at building entrances, wiring closets, couplers, and between a transmitter and receiver.

Connecting two Fiber Optic cables requires precise alignment of the mated fiber cores or spots in a single mode Fiber Optic cable. This is required so that nearly all the light is coupled from one Fiber Optic cable to another Fiber Optic cable.

There are two principal types of splices Fusion and Mechanical.

· Fusion Splices use a fusion splicer machine with an electric arc to weld two Fiber Optic cables together. The process of fusion splicing involves using localized heat to melt or fuse the ends of two optical fibers together.

  • The fiber splicing process begins by preparing each fiber end for the fusion splicer machine which will conduct fusion splicing.
  • Fusion splicing requires that all protective coatings be removed from the ends of each fiber.
  • The fiber is then cleaved using the score and break method.
  • The quality of each fiber end is inspected using a microscope.
  • In fusion splicing, splice loss is a direct function of the angles and quality of the two fiber end faces.

The basic fusion splicer machine consists of fiber holders on which the fibers are mounted with two electrodes. An inspection microscope assists in the placement of the prepared fiber ends into a fusion splicing machine. The fibers are placed into the fiber splicer holders, aligned, and then fused together. Fusion splicing used use nichrome wire as the heating element to melt or fuse fibers together.

New fusion splicers have replaced the nichrome wire with carbon dioxide (CO2) lasers, electric arcs, or gas flames to heat the fiber ends, causing them to fuse together.

Arc fusion splicer can splice single fibers or 4, 8, 12 and 24 fiber count ribbon fibers at the same time. The small size of the fusion splice and the development of automated fusion splicer machines have made electric arc fusion one of the most popular splicing techniques in commercial applications. The fusion splicers offer sophisticated, computer controlled alignment of Fiber Optic cables to achieve loss as low as 0.02 dB.
