FITEL S123M12 Handheld Ribbon Splicer

With its low profile and new super rugged body, FITEL® S123 Series Fusion Splicer offers speedy operation for FTTX, LAN, backbone or long-haul in lations. The lightweight, durable metal body frame and rubber protection corners provide robust protection, enabling use in challenging locations without romising splicer performance.

The S123 Splicer is water resistant and dust resistant to IP5X.

A large battery capacity makes it possible to perform up to 160 cycles of splicing and heating for the S123M12 models with a dual battery configuration.

Combining portability, power flexibility and field ruggedness, the S123 Splicer delivers fast and consistent splicing with outstand- ing mobility and extreme ease-of-use. It also offers a splice-on- connector (SOC) solution.
