ECOC 2013 in London ExCel Centre
Sumitomo Electric Europe will be at the ECOC exhibition in London ExCel Centre on booth 404. We will exhibit our latest 100G CFP transceivers and the new T-201 'Handy' fusion splicer.
T-71M12 new mass fusion splicer
Sumitomo introduces the T-71M12 mass fusion splicer. In addition to normal splicing the T-71M12 can be used with Sumitomo's Lynx2 Standard single fibre splice-on connectors and Lynx2-MPO 12 fibre splice-on connectors. Users of past generations of mass fusion splicers are familiar with the situation when the fibres do not lie correctly into the v-grooves. Requiring the wind hood to be opened the fibre positions adjusted before splicing. The T-71M12's Auto Clamp Adjust System, 'ACAS', is designed to prevent this happening and to increase your productivity. Just like the T-71C, the T-71M12 includes built in help videos and easy to use touch screen controls. The T-71M12 is protected against dust and water to IP52 and can receive software upgrades over the internet.
Lynx2-MPO splice-on connectors
With the launch of the T-71M12 Sumitomo is also able to introduce the Lynx2-MPO splice-on connector. Lynx2-MPO is offered in 3 versions: for bare fibre ribbon, for flat ribbon cord and for ribbonised groups of 12 individual fibres in round 3mm cord.
Lynx2 single fibre splice-on connectors
Sumitomo introduces the ST version of the Lynx2 splice-on connector. The single fibre Lynx2 family now includes FC, LC, SC and ST versions.
Lynx2 Short Boot and Lynx2-Mini splice-on connectors
Sumitomo's Lynx splice-on connector was originally developed for the USA market where it required compliance with the Telcordia GR-326-CORE standard for optical connectors. To meet this requirement the connector was designed with a relatively long boot. In Europe customers do not usually require Telcordia compliance, but look to IEC connector standards and often require shortest possible connector lengths. For the non-USA markets Sumitomo has launched a 'Short Boot' version of the Lynx2 splice-on connector. For those customers who find the Short Boot Lynx2 connector too long, there is now the Lynx2-Mini connector series. Lynx2-Mini connectors can be used on the T-71C splicer and are 8 to 11mm shorter than their standard counterparts.
