Quantum Type-Q101-CA+™ Core Alignment Fusion Splicer


The Quantum Type-Q101-CA-Plus™ is Sumitomo Electric Lightwave’s enhancement to its industry leading Quantum core alignment fusion splicer, providing the most advanced splicing technology available today. Maintaining all of the qualities and industry first features of the Quantum Type- Q101-CA, the Quantum + reaches new standard levels in speed by reducing heater shrink time from 28 to 14 seconds. This new speed, coupled with the splicer’s patent protected dual independent ovens, makes it the fastest in the industry by far. The built-in dual heater system, with its unprecedented speed, improves splicing efficiency by over 80% for perfectly streamlined, consecutive, and cost effective splices. The Quantum PLUS is also the lightest, smallest, and most advanced core alignment fusion splicer in the industry; yet it’s also rugged with superior dust, shock and water-proof resistance, making it the ideal choice for even the harshest environments.
