Aurora Instruments Inc. is offering the Fusion 2500, a fiber optic fusion splicer that provides two simultaneous 653 views of a fiber. It features a wide-angle viewing video monitor on an omnidirectional swivel mount, and has a video output port that allows users to display fiber images on an external monitor. It utilizes the company's core-to-core alignment system to produce what Aurora says are the lowest splice losses and most accurate loss estimates available. The Fusion 2500 can splice all standard single-mode and multimode, polyimide-coated, hermetic and Titan fibers. It comes in a carrying case that includes an independent pigtail port, RS-232 data port and a high-capacity battery pack.
