S123M series Hand-Held Ribbon Fiber Fusion Splicer

Fast splice(15sec) at low loss and fast heating(36sec), 70 cycles(Splicing & heating) for S123M4 and 160 cycles for S123M8/S123M12 with two batteries

General Details

The S123M Series Hand-Held Ribbon Fiber Fusion Splicers have been enhanced and updated to version 2. The battery is automatically charged internally when connected to AC mains power even during operation. The new illumination lamp lights up a wide area around the V-grooves and helps operation in low light environment. The redesigned and strengthened heater simplifies the protection sleeve loading process.
