The Type 41-S battery-powered single-fiber mini fusion splicer is suitable for taut-sheath and aerial-splicing applications as well as for standard cable installation and restoration. The device is the fourth generation in the company`s line of mini splicers that use fixed V-groove alignment technology. Features include a mirror-free design to reduce maintenance time, a dual light-emitting diode X-Y observation system, an arc-test function, and a multipositional 4-inch monitor with 50x magnification. The 6.6-pound portable unit creates permanent splices in singlemode, multimode, and dispersion-shifted fiber. Typical splice losses are 0.06 decibel for identical singlemode fiber and 0.03 dB for identical multimode fiber. Splices are completed in 25 seconds, after which the splicer inspects and measures the quality of the finished splice.
