Sumitomo's TomCat splicers are the industry's first "full-featured" hand-held
fiber splicers offering both the agility and the robustness required for FTTx,
premise, and optical component assembly applications. Easy-to-use,
easy-to-learn, these portable battery-operated splicers reduce training time
for efficient deployments—making fusion splicing the choice for both optimum
reliability and affordability.
Included in the "full-featured" distinction of the TomCat splicers are
adjustable position monitors that allow the user to observe the fiber during
the splicing process. Their front to back workflow makes the splicers ideal
when limited fiber slack is available, in aerial taut-sheath applications, and
for component testing.
