The Fitel S153A using “Active V-Groove alignment” is the first choice for low cost field optical fiber splicing equipment. The Active V-Groove technology used on the S153A delivers low loss splices with ease while eliminating common Fixed V-Groove splicing errors. Using the same rugged metal body as also-new FITEL S178, S153A is designed to endure harsh operating conditions by improving shock/impact resistance with rubber pads embedded on 4 corners of the splicer body. It also achieves water resistance compliant to IPX2 and dust resistance compliant to IP5X.

Another key feature of the S153A is the significantly reduced operation time. Protection sleeve shrink time is mere 25 seconds, while splicing requires only 9 seconds. Power saving technology used in these machines allows up to 200 splicing cycles (splicing and heating) with 2 built in rechargeable batteries.
By combining ease of use, improved speed, precision, durability and portability, the S153A Fusion Splicer becomes your first choice for a versatile low cost splicer with a wide range of applications.
