The fusion splicer options today are far better than they were years ago. They used to be very large and hard to use. Today, they are actually quite a bit smaller, and they are handheld in many cases. This allows those in the telecom field to use them in a number of different locations and situations. The advances in the device, including the better quality controls and options onboard, help to make the entire process of splicing much easier. Those who are using high quality splicing tools will find that getting the splices right is relatively simple.
How fusion splicers work
When you are splicing optical wires, you want to make sure that the process works properly the first time. In order to do this, you not only need to have a good fusion splicer; you also need to go through the process of splicing correctly. First, you need to strip the fiber and then clean it properly. You can then cleave the fiber to prepare for the actual splicing.
About fusion splicers
A fusion splicer is a tool often used in the telecommunications industry. It allows the user to connect the ends of two optical fiber cables only using heat. It can actually be rather tricky to do this properly, as they need to fuse the cable in a way that the light that goes through the cable still travels smoothly from one end to the other without reflecting or scattering. The source of heat used to fuse the wires can vary based on the type and model of splicer you choose. It can be an electric arc, laser or a gas flame.
