The FITEL S178 Hand-Held Core-Alignment Fusion Splicer is the latest, state-of-the art addition to the S17X series of splicers. By combining speed, precision, durability and portability in one unit, the S178 Fusion Splicer ushers in an entirely new range of applications for core alignment splicing.

Equipped with a new alignment system that can save up to 20% on splicing time, the S178 Splicers improved heating mechanism can also reduce protection sleeve shrink time by more than 30%. In addition, a newly incorporated USB 2.0 interface speeds PC communication and image/video transfer, while enhancing reliability.

Although the S178 Fusion Splicer is significantly smaller and lighter in weight than previous models, its canopy design, durable metal body frame and rubber protection corners provide robust protection, enabling use in demanding environments without compromising splicing performance.

Along with its rugged durability, the splicer also offers convenience. A new battery system allows up to 200 splicing cycles (splicing/heating) before additional batteries are needed, and an innovative, mirror-free alignment system makes maintenance work a snap.

While the S178 Fusion Splicer is fast and durable, it continues the FITEL tradition of quality and excellence by delivering precise, accurate splices even under rigorous conditions in the field.

The S178 Fusion Splicer is your logical choice for a wide range of uses including FTTX, LAN, backbone, enterprise, long-haul installations, data-center and/or OEM applications. It is also an excellent option for use in the conventional telecommunications industry, along with other industries (including oil and gas)
