Furukawa Electric FITEL NINJA Fusion Splicer Targets FTTH Network Splicing

ANAHEIM, Calif. — 2015 FTTH Connect Conference, Booth 513 - Furukawa Electric and OFS are pleased to introduce the FITEL NINJA NJ001 handheld fusion splicer, designed for Fiber to the Home (FTTH) applications.

As FTTH continues to grow around the globe, the NINJA NJ001 is designed to be user friendly for today's FTTH technician. Combining portability and ease of use in a ruggedized body, the NJ001 offers powerful splicing performance with the durability needed for use in the field.

The NINJA has a list of compelling features for FTTH network splicing including the following:

    --  The industry's first detachable V-groove - Although many splicers on the

        market enable some maintenance by field technicians, the NINJA's

        detachable V-groove enables the technician to remove and more thoroughly

        clean this critical part in minutes, allowing the technician to get back

        to splicing quicker, which accelerates deployments while driving down

        splicing costs. This is important since dirty V-grooves are a source of

        error, and is the number one reason a splicer is sent in for repair. The

        NINJA's detachable grooves enable the technician to keep the splicer

        cleaner and in operation longer between scheduled maintenance visits.

        Cleaner V-grooves make better splices and with higher productivity,

        since fewer repreps are needed.

    --  Wide splicing chamber - Today's technician is in a hurry.  The NINJA

        features a wider splicing chamber for faster and easier fiber loading,

        making this one of the most user-friendly splicers available.

    --  Improved splicing chamber visibility - Work doesn't stop just because

        the sun goes down.  Three LED lights illuminate the entire splicing

        chamber with more than 300 Lux. This light intensity improves

        visibility, making it easier to perform work in low-light environments.

    --  Powerful motors for stable splicing - FTTH drop cables are often stiff.

        Weak splicer motors can require the technician to perform more cable

        prep to offset the motor weakness.  The NINJA has powerful fiber

        propulsion motors to complete splices with even very rigid drop cables.

    --  Lens protection cover - This protective cover makes the cleaning work

        for lens much easier for technicians and is a unique feature to this

        splicing model.

    --  Fusion splice-on connector compatible - With fusion splice-on connectors

        gaining acceptance as a way to field terminate cables, the NINJA

        compatible with fusion splice-on field installable connectors from a

        wide variety of manufacturers.

    --  Large battery capacity to keep field technicians going -  While the

        NJ001 design is compact and low profile, its large battery capacity

        allows 100 splicing and heating cycles in one charge.

    --  Removable heater bracket allows the heater to perform ST FC field

        installable connectors, thus eliminating the need for an external


Just like a NINJA, the NJ001 is strong, fast, and precise! For product demonstration and chance to win a gift card*, please visit OFS booth 513 at FTTH June 29 30 at the Anaheim Convention Center, California.
