AFL Launches the Fujikura 90S+ Fusion Splicer with Active Fusion Control Technology

Spartanburg, SC – AFL, an international manufacturer of fiber optic cable, equipment, and accessories is launching a new single fiber core alignment fusion splicer—the Fujikura 90S+. With improved ergonomics and enhanced automation of its predecessor, the Fujikura 90S, the 90S+ improves productivity and minimizes downtime with new Active Fusion Control (AFC) technology.

“The pandemic took the world by surprise, but the world adapted faster than expected, largely leveraging virtual connectivity to do so,” commented Lucas Mays, associate product line manager for AFL’s Fusion Splicing Systems. “Because of this, it’s no surprise broadband demand spiked. Fujikura fusion splicers met this demand by minimizing installation and repair times of broadband networks. With the new Active Fusion Control feature in the 90S+, downtime is reduced, output is more efficient and ultimately, productivity improves.”

Active Fusion Control (AFC) technology improves splice loss from poorly cleaved fibers and prevents bad splices due to a dull or dirty blade, or a poorly maintained cleaver in general. The Fujikura 90S+ can be used in many field splicing applications including bend-insensitive fibers in drop cables, long-haul terrestrial and submarine LEAF® fibers, loose buffer fiber, splice-on connectors, and more. Additionally, the speed and accuracy of the 90S+ make it suitable for certain production and specialty environments, where high output, tight packaging, and low loss requirements are needed. 

“In the real world, it can be difficult to maintain spotless equipment. With a more robust splicing process, the Fujikura 90S+ prevents additional truck rolls for reworking splice points,” continued Mays. “Active Fusion Control combined with Active Blade Management (ABM) between the CT50 cleaver and 90S+ delivers a complete value-add feature set not seen in other splicing equipment on the market.”

AFL operates the only authorized repair facility for Fujikura splicing products in the U.S. Technical support is available 24/7 and complimentary on-site training is available with every splicer purchased.
