Thorlabs' Vytran® Stand-Alone Preparation and Fusion Splicing Stations are designed to allow preparation and splicing operations to be performed simultaneously for increased throughput or in different locations of the facility. Offering similar performance to our FFS2000 all-in-one workstation, the FPC200 preparation station and FSX2000PM Fusion Splicing Station accept SM, MM, or PM fiber. The FPC200 accepts fiber with cladding diameters from 80 µm to 400 µm, while the FSX2000PM accepts fiber with cladding diameters from 80 µm to 200 µm.
To build a complete fiber preparation and splicing system, you must purchase both the FPC200 and FSX2000PM base units, as well as other components that depend upon the fibers' cladding and coating diameters. For more information on how to make your selections, please see the Decisions tab.
Thorlabs also offers a line of stand-alone recoaters and proof testing systems that can be utilized to reapply a coating layer to the spliced region and to test the strength of the fiber splice.
Questions? We're All Ears!
To build a complete fiber processing system, you will need to purchase base unit(s) plus additional components that are dependent upon the size of the fiber being processed. Upon receipt of your order, we will review it for completeness and accuracy and contact you if there appear to be any discrepancies. All inserts are installed and factory-aligned within the base unit prior to shipping.
If you would like assistance in choosing the correct components or have questions about component compatibility, please contact tech support. We're more than happy to answer your questions any time before or after purchase.
The FPC200 and FSX2000PM base units include all of the accessories that do not depend upon the particular fibers being processed. Required components that depend upon the fiber size or type must be purchased separately. We have arranged this page in a way that will help you ensure that you have all the required components. Simply scroll down the page; the red headings will indicate whether an item must be purchased and for which system (FPC200 preparation station or FSX2000PM splicer).
If you purchase either an FSX2000PM or FPC200 and do not have one or more of the required components in your order, we will contact you to help you complete the purchase. If you have any pre- or post-sale questions, please contact tech support.
The FSX2000PM is designed to directly accept fibers prepared for splicing using the FPC200. If you are planning to utilize these stand-alone units in tandem, we suggest purchasing two sets of FHBR1 fiber holding blocks and inserts so that the preparation and fusion splicing processes can be performed simultaneously by different operators.
