Product Overview: Fujikura 70S Core Alignment Fusion Splicer

The Fujikura 70S is the latest addition to Fujikura’s fusion splicer range and has been specifically designed to be more ergonomic, faster and have greater durability than the 60S, reducing splicing time to just seven seconds.

 

The rugged construction design adds improved reliability by resisting shock, rain and dust, allowing it to withstand a 30 inch drop test. Two of the newest features include an automated wind protector and a tube heater which has been developed for quicker splicing cycles and to reduce the number of operational steps. The unit also includes a high-resolution LCD monitor, powerful Li-ion battery for longer operation time and built in videos for on-the-go training.

Fujikura 70S Features:

• Automated and programmable wind protector

• 9-second automated tube heater

• Fully robust 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 fibre holder operation

• On-board training and support videos

• Internet software upgrades

• 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, such as the https://jmtest.com/i/fiber-fox-mini-universal-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
