Product Overview: Fujikura 70S+ Core Alignment Fusion Splicer with Bluetooth

Fujikura 70S+ Core Alignment Fusion Splicer with Bluetooth

The Fujikura 70S+ is the world’s fastest and most robust core alignment fusion splicer.
Incorporating the proven ruggedized features pioneered by Fujikura, the 70S+ has
added automated and enhanced user control features to increase splicing efficiency.
A user programmable, automated wind protector expedites the splicing process by
automatically closing to initiate the splice process, and opening upon splice completion.
Fully programmable “auto open sheath clamps” open one or both sheath clamps, after
the tensile test, to prepare the fiber for removal. A new automated “clamshell design”
tube heater applies heat to both sides of the splice protection sleeve resulting in a
13-second shrink time. The result is a total splice process time of approximately 21
seconds! Ruggedness and durability are greatly enhanced by a mirror-less optical system
and “severe-impact resistant” monitor. Battery capacity is now 200 splices/shrinks.
An innovative transit case doubles as a built-in or mobile workstation and makes
splicing easier than ever before. In an industry first, the 70S+ is also equipped with
Bluetooth® technology. This allows the splicer to actively communicate with Bluetooth
enabled fiber preparation accessories making maintenance of fiber preparation tools
easier than ever! The 70S+ will also be available without Bluetooth functionality.

Features
• Bluetooth wireless communication
• Automated and programmable
wind protector
• 13-second automated tube heater
• Fully ruggedized for shock, dust
and moisture
• Li-ion battery with 200 splices/shrinks
per charge
• 5 mm cleave length for splice on
connector or small package needs
• Sheath clamp or fiber holder operation
• On-board training and support videos
• Multi-function transit case with
integrated workstation

If you are in the field and are experiencing issues, errors or just having a hard time successfully splicing your fiber optic cable and/or using your fiber splicer, here are a few of the most common errors, reasons and solutions to help you troubleshoot.  All fiber splicer rentals from JM Test are supplied with a splicer cleaning kit to help you stay productive.  Having a fiber prep kit is also good to have on hand and a great addition to any Fiber Technicians tool belt.

Error Message Reason Solution
Too Long Fiber

 

• The Fiber end-face is placed on the electrode centerline or beyond it
• The cleave length (bare fiber part) is too long
• Dust or dirt is on the objective lens
• Press “RESET” and set the fiber end-face between the electrode centerline and the V-groove edge.
• Confirm the placement of the stripped fiber end on the fiber cleaver.  Check the cleave length.
• Execute the “dust check” and clean the lens when dust or dirt exists.
Too Dusty Fiber

 

• Dust or dirt is on the fiber surface
• Dust or dirt is on the objective lens
• “Cleaning Arc” time is too short of “OFF”
• Splicing fibers with unresolvable core positions using the SM or DS Modes
• “Align” is set to “Core” when splicing fibers with unresolvable core positions when using the other splice modes
• “Focus” is incorrectly set when using other splice modes 
• Completely prepare the fiber again (strip, clean and cleave)
• Execute the dust check.  Clean the lens if dust or dirt exists
• Set the “Cleaning Arc” time to “150ms.”.  If/When splicing carbon coated fibers, set to “200ms.”
• Use the MM mode to splice fibers with unresolvable core positions. (i.e. mm fiber)
• Set “Align” to Clad to splice these fibers (i.e. mm fiber)
• Set “Focus” to Edge to splice fibers with unresolvable core positions (i.e. mm fiber).  To splice distinct core fibers, “Auto” or the correct focus value should be entered. 
ZL/ZR Motor Overrun

 

• The fiber is set too far back and does not reach the splice point
• The cleave length (bare fiber part) is too short
• Splicing loose buffer fiber without protrusion engaged 
• Press “RESET”, re-position the fiber again with the end-face closer to the electrodes
• Confirm the placement of the stripped fiber end on the fiber cleaver.  Check the cleave length.
• Flip the protrusion switch so it engages the loose buffer fiber 
Large Cleave Angle

 

• Bad fiber end-face
• Cleave Limit is changed to low value 
• Check the condition of the fiber cleaver.  If the blade is worn, rotate the blade to a new position
• Load the initial value from database 
Cleave Shape NG

 

• Bad fiber end-face

 

• Clean and check the condition of the fiber cleaver.  If the blade is worn, rotate the blade to a new position

 

High Estimated Loss

 

• Dust or dirt is on the fiber surface
• Bad fiber end-face
• Improper splice mode selected
• Unstable arc discharge 
• Completely prepare the fiber again (strip, clean and cleave)
• Check the condition of the fiber cleaver.  If the blade is worn, rotate the blade to a new position
• Select proper splice mode
• Electrodes may be worn.  Perform “Electrode Stabilization” or replace electrodes if necessary
