The Fujikura 70S Fusion Splicer combines streamlined operation with a consistent and reliable splice and heat shrink performance of 7 and 14 seconds for an overall splicing process of just 21 seconds. Both fast and economical, the 70S allows users to customize the machine’s splicing operations to best suit their splicing technique and process. An automated wind protector and "auto open sheath clamps" accelerate the splicing process by opening and closing to initiate and cease splicing operations for easier fiber induction and removal, while a new "clamshell" design tube heater applies heat to both sides of the splice protection sleeve for reduced shrink time. Thanks to a mirror-less optical system and severe impact-resistant monitor, the 70S is more rugged and resilient against shock, dust and moisture damage. Combined with an enhanced battery capacity of 200 splices/shrinks and an innovative carrying case that doubles as a mobile workstation, the 70S Fusion Splicer makes splicing in any setting faster and easier than ever before.
