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