Product Overview: Fujikura 90S Fusion Splicer

Fujikura 90S Fusion Splicer

Fujikura’s new core alignment splicer is the 90S. It’s made to provide you with high-quality splices while allowing you to remain in the field. From splicing low-quality legacy fiber to automated equipment repair and upkeep, the 90S kit addresses typical problems in the field today. The 90S can be used in any field splicing application that is currently available, including bend-insensitive fibers in drop cables, long-haul terrestrial and submarine LEAF fibers, loose buffer fiber, splice on connectors, and so on. The 90S’s speed and accuracy make it ideal for a variety of production and specialty environments where fast performance, tight packaging, and low loss are needed. With its various automatic and ease-of-use features, the 90S is designed to keep you working with an extended battery life of 300 splice and heat cycles, as well as by eliminating the need for conventional activity tasks such as periodic arc calibrations, cleaver blade rotations, cleaver use monitoring, and manual splicing operations. The 90S kit is more flexible than any of its predecessors in adjusting to changing work conditions and environments thanks to a revamped work tray, cooling tray, and optional cable clamp. Furthermore, there is no longer a need to buy and swap out an additional sheath clamp while splicing loose buffer fiber. Now, a universal sheath clamp that handles both loose and tight buffer fiber is standard.

Fujikura 90S Fusion Splicer Features:

  • Cleaver tracking and upkeep with wireless communication
  • Automated wind protector, sheath clamps and splice operation
  • Loose and tight buffer with same sheath clamp
  • Lithium-ion battery with 300 splices/shrinks per charge
  • Graphical User Interface with 5.0″ Touchscreen
  • PC software and 90S manual downloaded from splicer
  • Multi-function transit case with integrated workstation

Applications:

  • Distribution fiber repair
  • Long-haul network installation
  • Field termination with splice-on connectors
  • Access network installation
  • Fanout kits, pigtails and splice cassettes
  • OSP cable installation and repair
  • Optical modules – splitters, couplers, MUXs, EDFAs and attenuators

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
