FASE II is a compact fixed-alignment splicer. It is designed to produce low loss splices with both singlemode and multimode fibre. When quality of splice and speed of installation are important FASE II is the cost-effective solution.

A precision-engineered ceramic V-block guides the fibres into alignment. The operator need only place fibres in the self-centering clamps, look through the high power microscope, adjust the gap between the fibres using thumbwheels and press the arc button.

As the arc is fired the fibres are driven together using a piezoelectric translator. The surface tension of the molten fibres pulls them into alignment.

FASE II achieves low loss splices by using a unique fusion technique - Axial Reciprocation*. Developed during years of research this technique increases the surface tension effect by vibrating one of the fibres as they are brought together.

FASE II is microprocessor controlled and has a range of programs suiting most fibre types - both singlemode and multimode. This is complemented by an operator programmable facility allowing the user precise control over all the splice parameters.

Ergonomic design ensures that FASE II is quick and easy to use, enabling you to efficiently complete your installation tasks.

FASE II incorporates power-efficient electronics and an auto-power-down feature to provide over one hundred splices from its internal lead acid battery. A low-battery indication tells you when to plug in the supplied charger.

FASE II is housed in a robust aluminium case and has been designed to withstand harsh field use. It is small enough to be operated in the confined spaces found in premise installations. The microscope folds away without being detached so that the unit maintains a low profile when not in use.

FASE II has been designed to ensure safe operation. The high voltage arc has a dual software and hardware interlock so it cannot be fired accidentally. The X75 magnification microscope provides a clear view of the fibres and is designed to protect the user from both ultraviolet and infrared light.

The design of the splicer has been simplified to give excellent reliabilty - FASE II comes with a one and optional three year parts and labour guarantee.

The only maintenance required is the occasional replacement of the electrodes. The preset electrode blocks are quickly fitted and ensure an accurate gap. The software keeps track of the number of splices performed so the user can monitor usage. Tools are provided for cleaning the V-block and the electrodes.

The FASE II fusion splicer can be supplied as part of the
FASEKIT, which includes the HSO II heatshrink oven, providing a cost effective jointing kit.

The FASEKIT(LCD) is modified to accept a camera kit providing a clear image of the fibres on a 3.8" LCD monitor.

For splicing in difficult access situations, TRITEC provide a mounting kit, including a lightweight, robust tripod, bench clamp, mounting plate and fibre handler. Both the HSO II and the FASE II can be secured on the mounting plate. The fibre handler firmly holds the fibres and transports the finished splice to the heatshrink oven.
