FEBRUARY 2020 PRODUCT UPDATES


If you missed our February email newsletter, we highlighted three products:

Fujikura 90S/90R Splice Machine

The Fujikura 90S and 90R Splices feature ergonomic improvements, combined with enhancements to automate operation, and are designed to maximize productivity in the field and minimize downtime for routine maintenance.
The Fujikura 90 series models also feature:
  • A touchscreen monitor that enables immediate access to key software functions;
  • A redesigned transit case that adds multiple workstation configurations and increased storage space for splicing accessories and consumables;
  • Enhanced Bluetooth® cleaver management that allows tracking and management of two cleavers simultaneously;
  • Increased battery life of approximately 50 percent.

The 
Fujikura 90S features a new multi-function sheath clamp which incorporates an innovative dual clamping capability that enables proper clamping of loose jacketed 900 ┬Ám without the need to exchange the sheath clamp. New fiber retention clamps also secure the completed splice in the v-grooves to enable quicker application of the protection sleeve and transfer to the sleeve heater.
 
The 
Fujikura 90R, primarily used with ribbon fiber, is provided with a spare 12-fiber v-groove and electrode assembly which can be quickly exchanged in the field to address silica buildup and contamination issues that often slow the splicing productivity of high fiber count cables.  


Prysmian’s 288 Microduct Cable
Prysmian recently announced it had released a new, 288-fiber, reduced diameter microduct cable. The 288-fiber ezMICRODUCT, made with 200-micron fiber, has an outer diameter of only 8 mm. This marks the latest innovation to Prysmian Group’s already impressive microduct product line, which includes a 528-fiber cable optimized for 14 mm duct.

The 288-fiber ezMICRODUCT not only has a higher density, but was also developed for ease of installation. The size of the cable and amount of fiber allows the installer to work with existing infrastructure. With 24 fibers per tube versus at least 48 fiber per tube from competitors, it makes the fibers easier to identify and fit into a standard splicing tray. With an operating temperature of -40°F to 158°F, this cable is suitable for microduct systems anywhere in the U.S.

EXFO Power Optical Expert
