Martinsried, 20.06.2012, CAS-4100 and CAS-4100-P are new-generation, compact,
semi-automated splicers that produce high-strength, consistent splices quickly and efficiently.
CAS systems feature a unique design, advanced imaging capabilities and programming flexibility.
They are ideal for development applications and cost-effective, high-volume production, including three-shift manufacturing.
CAS-4100-P is tailored for polarization maintaining (PM) fibers.
At the foundation of CAS-4100 systems is Vytrans' proven filament fusion technology - the industry's most reliable method
for creating high-strength, low-loss splices. These splicers also utilize True Core Imaging(TM) , a high-resolution
imaging system that enables fast, accurate, inner-core alignment and splice loss calculation. In both CAS-4100 and CAS-4100-P,
all components, including the imaging system, computer and a large folding display, are embedded into the splicer,
reducing the space required by more than a factor of three. A newly designed graphical user interface (GUI) offers two modes
of operation. The first, development mode, allows complete process configuration and control. The second, manufacturing mode,
is an ultra-simplified GUI for production operators. All splice-related information can be exported via an ethernet port for
statistical process control.
