The KF4A is the ideal fusion splicer for FTTx and working at height because of the All-In-One design – Splicer and heatshrink oven are what you would expect but it also comes with a built in heat stripper, precision cleaver and alcohol dispenser. As options you can add a power meter and visible light source for testing components such as Splice On Connectors.
South Korea is one of the leading countries in FTTx deployment and UCL Swift has developed their range of splicers based on years of experience and innovation. Innovation that gives engineers using their equipment a distinct advantage.
All In One Design – When working at height, safety is paramount and the KF4A can be worn in a harness and beacuase everything is built into the splicing unit, there is no risk of dropping strippers or cleavers or alcohol dispensers, with everything built in – everything is safe.
Heat Stripping – When you strip fibres using hand strippers such as Miller strippers there is a risk that the fibre is nicked and damaged which leads 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 part of the All-In-One package.
Fibre Holders – As an option the KF4A can operate with fibre holders 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 SCAPC patch cord in an hour – you can make one now on site in 6 minutes)
