Sumitomo launches the T-201e micro splicers. The ‘e’ adds the ability to charge its battery inside the splicer body and acceptance of fibres cleaved 5mm from the end of the coating to the already highly praised T-201.
A choice of standard, BU-12S and long-life, BU-12L, batteries are offered for the T-201e. The batteries are in a hard plastic cassette and easily removed from the splicer without use of tools of handling flimsy connectors. With the optional BC-12 external battery charger you can charge batteries both inside the splicer body and externally in the BC-12.
‘5mm cleave length’ means the T-201e-VS is now compatible with Sumitomo’s Lynx2-Mini splice-on connectors, in addition to the standard Lynx2 connectors
