The FITEL® S178 Version 2 Hand-Held Core-Alignment Fusion Splicer is the latest, state-of-the art addition to the S17X series of splicers. By combining speed, precision, durability and portability in one unit, the S178 ver.2 Fusion Splicer ushers in an entirely new range of applications for core alignment splicing.
The S178 ver.2 Fusion Splicer has been enhanced with new features
to promote ease of use. The splicer is updated to automatically charge the battery internally (when connected to AC main power) even during operation.
The new illumination lamp lights up a wide area around the V-grooves and improves operation in low light environment. The redesigned and strengthenedheater simplifies the protection sleeve loading process.
Equipped with a new alignment system that can save up to 20% on splicing time, the S178 ver.2 Splicer’s improved heating mechanism can also reduce protection sleeve shrink time by more than 30%. In addition, a newly incorporated
USB 2.0 interface speeds PC communication and image/video transfer,
while enhancing reliability.
Although the S178 ver.2 Fusion Splicer is significantly smaller and lighter in weight than previous models, its canopy design, durable metal body frame and rubber protection corners provide robust protection, enabling use in demanding environments without compromising splicing performance. Along with its rugged durability, the splicer also offers convenience. A new battery
system allows up to 200 splicing cycles (splicing/heating) before additional batteries are needed, and an innovative, mirror-free alignment system makes maintenance work a snap.
While the S178 ver.2 Fusion Splicer is fast and durable, it continues the
FITEL tradition of quality and excellence by delivering precise, accurate
splices even under rigorous conditions in the field.
The S178 ver.2 Fusion Splicer is your logical choice for a wide range of uses including FTTX, LAN, backbone, enterprise, long-haul installations, data-center and/or OEM applications. It is also an excellent option for use in the conventional telecommunications industry, along with other industries (including oil and gas). S178-A-V2 Data Sheet
