The Greenlee 910FS Core Alignment fusion splicer provides lower loss fusions splices than cladding or V-groove technology fusion splicers.

The active alignment mechanism of the 910FS Core alignment splicer makes adjustments to compensate for concentricity, dirt and overall diameter.

Single Mode Fibre (SMF) has a core diameter of between 8 and 10 microns, but if the core an ladding is not co-axial a mechanical alignment of the cladding (in V-grooves) cannot optimally align the cores in two dimensions, resulting in higher splice losses.

Core Alignment Technology

The Greenlee 910FS Core Alignment fusion splicer employs a Core Detection System (CDS) also known as a Profile Alignment System (PAS). Light is shone into the fibre and embedded cameras are used to identify the core of the fibre by detecting the difference in the refraction of light caused at the core/cladding interface. The type of fibre is also determined at this stage and allows the 910FS fusion splicer to automatically select the optimum splicing profile.

Core alignment splicers use six motors and two cameras to align the fibres in the X, Y and Z dimensions. The motors then bring the fibres together in the Z direction prior to splicing.

The 910FS Core Alignment Splicer is able to compensate for any misalignment of the fibre cores held in the V-grooves since the V-grooves are moved to align the cores of both fibres precisely. This is done in a dynamic feedback loop (PAS) methodology that automatically senses the active area of the fibre core and adjusts the alignment of the two cores to minimise loss.

Any misalignment of the fibres within the V-grooves, due to fibre tolerances, contamination or misuse is automatically compensated resulting in repeatable, low loss splices.
