The S183 Advanced Fusion Splicer series was designed specifically for the demanding production and research applications of the optical components industry. There are two versions of the S183: the S183K offers programs for specialty and exotic fiber combinations as well as high-strength splicing applications. The S183PM can also splice polarization maintaining fiber faster than any other unit in the world. The S183 Advanced Fusion Splicer series is setting a new standard in the field of high-end fusion splicing applications.
FEATURES & APPLICATIONS
● SAFE PM FIBER ROTATION
The new rotation mechanism on the S183PM allows PM fiber to rotate while keeping straight and stable. This minimizes fiber twist, which can be detrimental to sensitive splicing applications.
● QUICK LOADING & AUTOMATIC MACHINE ADJUSTMENT
The S183 automatically adjusts for different fiber coating and cladding sizes. There is no need to exchange electrodes, v-grooves, or fiber clamps. In addition, the S183 has been designed so that the user simply loads the fiber and closes the lid to begin the fusion process. There is no need to lower or set fiber clamps before beginning your splice.
● BI-DIRECTIONAL OPERATION
By changing the vertical screen display orientation, you can use the S183 with the LCD in the front or rear.
● ADVANCED “SMARTFUSE” FUNCTIONALITY
The S183 includes a sophisticated software platform that enhances your splicing performance in the lab and factory. This software allows the user to document all splicing results, perform “live” splicing with real-time feedback from test equipment, and study splicing characteristics, to name just a few of the advanced features.
● ADVANCED FUSION CONTROL
Arc curving, arc sequencing and arc scanning functions on the S183 allow it to perform a wide variety of advanced fusion control techniques to minimize the insertion loss and maximize the tensile strength for any specialty fiber combination
● FAST SPLICE TIME!!
The splice time is lightning fast at 42 seconds for PANDA and 20 seconds for SM. The S183 is the fastest in the industry for most fiber applications, allowing you to increase efficiency on your production line.The advanced features of the S183 allow you to splice today’s and tomorrow’s most exotic fiber types. Whether performing high-strength splices, splicing small cladding fibers (80mm), large cladding fibers (400mm), high MFD splicing combinations, PM fibers, or erbium-doped fiber, the S183 is the splicer for your high-end applications.
