The FITEL® S153 V2  Fusion Splicer is an obvious choice for low cost field splicing equipment. The Active V-Groove Technology used on the S153 V2  Fusion Splicer delivers low loss splices while helping to eliminate common Fixed V-groove splicing errors. By combining speed, precision, durability and portability in one unit, the S153 V2  Fusion Splicer ushers in an entirely new range of applications for active alignment splicing.

The S153 V2 A Fusion Splicer canopy design, durable metal body frame and rubber protection corners provide robust protection, enabling use in demanding environments without compromising splicer performance. The S153 V2 A is water resistant to IPX2 and dust resistant to IP5X.

Equipped with a new alignment system that can save up to 20% on splicing time, the S153 V2  Splicer's improved heating mechanism can also reduce protection sleeve shrink time by more than 30%. In addition, a newly incorporated USB 2.0 interface speeds PC communication and image/video transfer, while enhancing reliability.

While the S153 V2  Fusion Splicer is fast and durable, it continues the FITEL tradition of quality and excellence by delivering precise, accurate splices even under rigorous conditions in the field.

The S153 V2  Fusion Splicer is your logical choice for a wide range of uses including FTTX, LAN, backbone, enterprise, long-haul installations, data-center and/or OEM applications. It is also an excellent option for use in the conventional telecommunications industry, along with other industries (including oil and gas).

Under Tough Environments


The S153 V2 passed manufacturer testing based on criteria below (Above tests were performed at the manufacturer's Furukawa Electric Co. Labs, and do not guarantee that the machine will be undamaged under these conditions.):

  • Drop resistant - 76 cm drops from 5 different angles
  • Water resistant - IPX2 rating drip proof (IPX2 rating drip proof means that the machine can be exposed to 3 mm/min drip from 4 different angles with 15° tilt for 2.5 min each and still functions.)
  • Dust resistant - IP5X rating dust proof (IP5X rating dust proof means that the machine can be exposed to dust particles with a diameter of 0.1 to 25 µm for 8 hours and still functions.)
