The user-friendly S179 Fusion Splicer was designed to meet the rigors of use in the field. While a substantially lower profile and lighter weight enhance portability, the splicer's canopy design and ruggedized body provide resistance to shock, water, and dust exposure. A powerful, high propulsion motor (8N) helps ensure stable splicing of even the most rigid indoor and drop cables. Internal battery charging, embedded Near Field Communication (NFC), and Smartphone readiness combine with other features to make the S179 one of the most powerful and user-friendly fusion splicing machines available today.
For a product demonstration and to learn more about the S179 Fusion Splicer, please visit OFS booth 306 at FTTH Connect June 13-15 at the Gaylord Opryland in Nashville, Tennessee.
