Incorporating mass fusion splicing practices saves installation time and improves consistency and project reliability compared to performing single fiber fusion splicing.
Cable preparation is streamlined since the fibres emerge from their buffer tubes ready for fusion splicing or optical testing, eliminating the need for cleaning products and leaving the work area and tools safer and cleaner.
FC-6RM-C fiber cleaver is the industry's first and only automatic blade rotation cleaver for high precision cleavers of 1 to 12 fibers for using in fusion splicing, field termination, while FC-60S automatic blade rotation cleaver is for single fiber applications, both of which are provided by FiberStore to address the market need for a more precise fiber cleaver that safe the consumed time and eliminate error prone process of height and blade rotation adjustments, and finally increase ease of use, precision and the cleaver's maximum product life.
