Fusion Splicers

Fusion Splicers are used in the connecting of fiber optics cables, but there are still some major differences in the types of splicers depending of the type of splicing you are looking to perform.

Core Alignment – Core Alignment splicers are used when performing splicing within the back-bone or at locations where dissimilar cores might be present. If you are unsure of the type of splicing you will be performing, a core alignment will handle most situations except for ribbon splicing.

V-Groove – V-groove, or cladding alignment splicers are generally less expensive than core alignment units, however they do not align the fibers in the same way and therefore allow for a higher level of loss during the splicing operation. These units are typically acceptable for FTTX or Premise splicing situations.

Ribbon Fusion Splicers – Ribbon fusion splicers are used when splicing ribbon fiber in configurations of 4 / 8 / 12 fibers. These ribbon fibers are typically found in the back-bone fiber plant.
