The KF4A is the ultimate FTTx splicer which means splicing will be easier and faster. The unique design includes splicer, oven, a built in heat stripper, precision cleaver and alcohol dispenser in one tidy platform. Consequently, you don’t have to juggle cleaver, hand strippers and alcohol bottles when you are up a pole or working on a ladder, the KF4A has everything safe in one unit. Add a built-in power meter and visible source option to give you the complete splicing platform to install FTTx networks. Splice fibre easily with this all-in-one fusion splicer. You can splice on connectors, repair cables and make pigtails and bespoke patch cords to exact specifications on site. It is not just a splicer, it is a splicing multi-tool.
The 4 motor active cladding alignment means that losses are low and a built in heat stripper gives high strength splices. You can splice connectors directly to fibre and make your own pigtails and patch cords on site. The KF4A gives you maximum flexibility, capability and productivity.
The All In One Design means all tools are in one platform so you don’t lose anything and you don’t drop anything when working at height. The splicer is light enough to be worn in a work harness and with the fibre stripper, alcohol dispenser and cleaver built in to the splicer there is no risk of losing or dropping these tools. So with everything built in, everything is safe and you can focus on getting the job done quickly and professionally.
When you strip fibres using hand strippers there is a risk that the fibre is damaged. This can lead to weak splices and link failure. The KF4A has a heat stripper built-in which softens and rips the coating off the fibre without touching the glass. This method is normally used in under sea joints but the KF4A offers this as standard. Click here to see the strength advantages of heat stripping the fibre.
IPASS Active Clad to Clad alignment ensures low loss splices of 0.02dB on singlemode and 0.01dB on multimode fibre.
As an option you can use fibre holders with the KF4A which means you no longer have to worry about strip lengths and cleave lengths. The holders improve the precision and repeatability of the splicing operation. In addition holders for making fibre repairs and splicing on connectors are available allowing you to make your own pigtails and bespoke patch cords. (If you need a precise length 28 metre SCPC to LCAPC patch cord you could call your supplier for a 7 day delivery or – you can make one now on site in 6 minutes)
A One-touch pump action dispenser is built into the splicer between the stripper and cleaver and is just where you want it and easy to refill.
The Auto rotating cleaver blade moves round after each cleave which ensures better cleaving and reduces the need for maintenance. A Built in fibre chip collector ensures a safe working environment.
The splicer gives a splice loss estimation and with the Built-in Power Meter and visible source option a measurement can be made of the loss of Splice On Connectors or other components.
Resistance to Shock, Dust and Water:
The KF4A FTTx splicer is highly reliable and offers a stable performance even in a harsh environment. It has a proven resistance to shock, water and dust.
