Title
(EN) TOOL FOR FUSING OPTICAL FIBERS
(FR) APPAREIL POUR REUNIR PAR LA FUSION DES FIBRES OPTIQUES
Abstract
(EN)
A tool for fusing optical fibers is provided. The tool is preferably sized to be hand held and includes a housing having clamps that are positioned to engage recesses within a fusion sleeve placed in a chamber within the housing for holding down the sleeve. The housing includes a current source and conducting terminals for contacting and for providing an electric current to portions of the sleeve so that a heating element within the sleeve can fuse the first and second optical fibers together.
(FR)
L'appareil décrit est de préférence dimensionné pour être portatif et comporte un boîtier pourvu de griffes positionnées pour s'engager dans des évidements à l'intérieur d'un manchon de fusion placé, pour être assujetti, dans une chambre à l'intérieur du boîtier. Ce dernier comprend une source de courant et des bandes conductrices pour établir un contact et fournir un courant électrique à des parties du manchon afin qu'un élément chauffant à l'intérieur de ce dernier puisse réunir par fusion les première et deuxième fibres optiques.
