Fujikura Splicer Electrodes

Fujikura started out by producing electric wires and cables, and in the 1970s expanded its business to the optical fiber business. Rich manufacturing experience provides a solid foundation for the development of Fujikura optical fiber fusion splicer. In the 1980s, Fujikura developed the world’s first core alignment fusion splicer and multi-core fiber fusion splicer, which not only promoted the development of the fusion splicer industry, but also allowed Fujikura to dominate the global fusion splicer market. Until now, Fujikura’s optical fiber fusion splicer business has the largest market share in the world.

Sumitomo Splicer Electrodes

Sumitomo Electric is the core company of the Sumitomo Group, one of Japan’s four major chaebols, and a world-renowned manufacturer of communications equipment. Its optical fiber production and sales account for more than 30% of the market share in Japan, and it has remained at the forefront of the world for many years. Sumitomo Electric’s fusion splicers are well received by international users. Its models are rich, whether it is single-core fiber, ribbon fiber, or cladding-aligned fiber, core-aligned fiber, you can find corresponding products.Its fusion splicer is small in size and light in weight, and the operator can work with one hand.


We started to make fiber optic products since 1995, our products range is from data center fiber cables, transceivers, boxes to FTTH/FTTA cables and equipment. We are known as one of the top fiber optic factory in China supplying various kinds of fiber optic cables, closures, transceivers, converters, testers and fiber optic cleaning equipment. In the field of fiber optic fusion splicing, we have splice trays, closures, splice sleeves, splicer electrodes, etc. Our products are reliable high quality but with low cost. Welcome to contact us for your fiber optic products needs.

Fusion Splicer Electrodes Maintenance

The electrode is an important consumable in the optical fiber fusion splicer. The electrode works in a high temperature and high-pressure environment for a long time, and the discharge part (tip) is easily oxidized to change the discharge intensity and discharge position, resulting in poor discharge effect and increased fusion loss. Therefore, it is very important to regularly maintain and replace the electrodes.

Cleaning: Keep the tip free of foreign objects. If the attachments on the tip are difficult to remove (such as oxides, etc.), special abrasive paper can be used to grind the tip part to make the tip shape regular.

Discharge experiment: Discharge experiment is an important operation for correcting discharge parameters. Generally, the fusion loss is large, the fusion splicer machine has not been used for a long time, or the use environment has changed significantly (such as from low-altitude to high-altitude areas or from high-temperature areas to low-temperature areas, etc.) , a discharge experiment is required.

Depending on the use of the electrode, it is generally recommended that the electrode be replaced after 3000 to 5000 discharges. If you continue to use it, it will affect the fusion effect. It is recommended to replace the electrodes in time after the fusion splicer has been discharged for 4500 times. When the number of discharges reaches 5000 times, if they continue to be used without replacing them, it is likely to cause very large fusion losses and greatly reduce the strength of the fusion point. In some cases of high-intensity load work, frequent cleaning of the electrode is also a very effective method to prolong the service life of the electrode. If the fusion effect is not good, you must change it, and many types of fusion splicer will prompt you to do so.

Depending on the model of the fusion splicer, please refer to the instruction manual of the fusion splicer to clean or replace the electric shock bar.

The fusion splicer melts the fiber end face by the heat of about 1,800°C generated by arc discharge (it is one of gas discharge. The gas between the electrodes and the two electrodes rise to high temperature and emit strong light for fusion splicing). Fusion splicer can instantly connects the fiber end faces placed on the left and right sides. The optical fiber used in the optical communication network is made of silica glass, and the interior is composed of a core in the center and a cladding part covering it, which is concentric. The optical signal enters the fiber core and propagates by continuous reflection between the core and the cladding. Optical fibers are divided into two types, namely single-mode fiber (SMF) with a thin core part and multi-mode fiber (MMF) with a thicker core part.
