Comprehensive guide for buying best Fiber Optic fusion Splicing Kit

​What is Fiber optic cable

​Fiber optic cable or optical fiber cable has become an industry standard when you need high bandwidth internet, audio video conferencing or your aim is to develop a super high speed internet.

​The Fiber optic splicers or fiber splicing kits we had mentioned in this article are equally useful for all sort of fiber oriented networks or Internet providers at residential houses, surveillance cameras, security alarms, VOIP based systems that utilize fiber optic cables.

Few ​Benefits of Optical Fiber

  • check
    ​Achievement of high bandwidth (10-0 GB per sec) for data transfer
  • check
    ​Can send and receive data to larger distances due to lesser signal degradation that is why fiber optic cables are used by most of Cable Television/ Internet provider companies.
  • check
    ​Lesser in cost, weight and size as compared to copper cables.

​Steps of fiber optic fusion

Step 1: ​A fiber optic stripper removes the first plastic layer of the fiber optic cable after that it can be placed inside the fiber optic splicer.

Step 2: ​We introduce a fusion protection sleeve to protect the bare fiber as shown in Figure below.

​Step 3: After that we use a cleaning wipe usually isopropyl alcohol to remove the wasters that may remain.

Step 4: After that we cut the fiber and for that we use device​ called Fiber optic cleaver or cutter that has a blade to cut the fiber optic at 90 degrees. We cut the fiber up to the length of 17 mm using the cleaver and this is shown in Figure below.

​Step 5: now we put the optical fiber into the fusion splicer and place it close to electrodes as shown in Figure below.

​We do the same process with other fiber end and close the clamps. We make sure that both the fibers that we want to join are close to electrodes but without joining each other as shown below.

​After that we close the shield of Fiber optical splicer and its screen will show the two fiber optics on the screen and they will be automatically aligned vertically and horizontally.

​​How we tested the Fusion Splicers

​Our test team consisted of three seasoned network technicians, and we evaluated fusion splicers provided by different companies. We tested them based upon precision of  ​their fiber alignment, speed and user friendly interface. We also compared the time required for the splicer to warm up and total time required in the splicing two fibers. According to us a quality splicer will fuse the fibers so precisely that there is no data loss or delay.

​Fiber Optic Fusion Splicer By DVP

DVP-765 Fusion Splicer

​According to our testers DVP-765 fusion splicer performed exceptionally well with great speed and its an excellent buy option. This splicer can automatically heat up (20 sec) and detect the fiber-touch. Another great feature is its portability after fully charge you can carry it any where in the field and you can splice 260 times without any charging. If battery is not charges you can also operate it with direct power. User interface is also very friendly and different colors indicate different fusion states. It has Innovative shockproof design which is also anti fall and quite sturdy. It has 6 groups of preset programs and 74 group of manual setting.

​AI-9 Fiber optic fusion splicing Kit {Bluetooth}

AI-9 Fiber optic fusion splicer

​AI-9 Fiber optic splicing kit is the best buy according to our testers team. The reason behind is that in the same price in which you get only a fiber splicing machine you are getting a complete kit that includes a cleaver, spare set of electrodes, fiber stripper, miller stripper, alcohol bottel and a brush for cleaning.

​Another great advantage of this splicer machine is that it has a builtin visual fault locator and a power meter as well. ​The power meter effectively measures connection loss​ and help ​in checking the fiber link transmission quality.

These added features saves you almost 300 dollars of purchasing these important equipment separately.

Bluetooth Splicer: ​The splicing can be very easily performed through mobile device due to the Bluetooth capability present in the splicer. The mobile APP can be used to turn on/off the machine menu,ARC calibration ,remote control,smart lock,etc.

Device menu is very user friendly and can be configured very easily in 10 different languages including English, french, Russian, Italian, Portuguese, Polish, Spanish, Thai and Arabic. The splicing machine operates very fast due to industrial quad-core chip CPU. Other than that all the core components of the splicer are of big brands e.g. the stepper motor is from Siemens and the builtin battery is from Siemens, We highly recommend this splicer kit to our blog users because it has Lifetime Friendly Customer Service,5 years warranty​ and once splicing reaches to 50,000 times free replacement a new machine.
