With State of the ARC technology, Fujikura’s ARCMaster sets a new standard for fiber fusion splicing. The ultimate in performance and flexibility for factory, manufacturing, laboratory, and R&D applications.
This revolutionary design accommodates optical fiber ranges from 60µm to 2000µm for cladding or coating without changing v-grooves or fiber clamps.
To properly align and splice ever-increasing and technically challenging varieties of PM fibers, Fujikura developed IPA, a new alignment technology, enabling accurate PER estimation for all PM fiber types.
ARCMaster splicers incorporate multiple fiber and electrode positioning techniques. The technology also provides unprecedented versatility for splicing LDF as well as heat sensitive or small diameter fibers.

Increased travel range for “sweep arc” provides improved MFD matching capability and the ability for reshaping non-circular fibers.
A low profile design eliminates fiber catch points. The dimensions of both splicers are consistent with the most popular production splicing work benches in use today.
Combining the best features of both cold and warm splice imaging, these new generation splicers offer unprecedented accuracy for splice loss estimation.
For splicing LDF fibers with minimal core angle, the fiber holders are horizontally positioned relative to the v-grooves, minimizing higher order modes in double clad fibers. By mounting the fiber holders in reversed orientation, LDF splicing performance is enhanced.
This calibration technology facilitates an easy transfer of high end splicing applications from R&D to production. This ensures consistent performance and enables full exploitation of “Plasma Zone” capabilities.
An industry first! Customers can now upgrade firmware as new capabilities become available from Fujikura. Upgrading is as simple as connecting a USB cable to your splicer.
Each ARCMaster Fusion Splicer is outfitted with a USB 2.0 port for PC connection, a GP-IB port for power-meter connection, and two Mini-DIN6 ports to control optional accessories.
