Paper Abstract

Quality of arc fusion splices despends strongly on equipment used and proper selection of splicing process parameters, such as arc current and power, sequence and duration of splicing steps. In Institute of Telecommunications, Warsaw a FOS - 2 type optical fiber splicer was developed, featuring automatic control of 3 - step splicing process, according to a program selected by operator. Laboratory tests on fusion splicing of 50/125 μm multimode graded index silica fibers allowed to find optimal arc current and duration. Average losses of splices made in optimal conditions were below 0.05 dB.
