The TUNE PM 400 Splicer is a novel solution to fusion splice polarization-maintaining fibers.   It directly aligns the fiber end polarization stress birefringence of a pair of optical fibers.     The design adds two manual rotary fiber holders to a conventional fusion splicer having modified software so that the PM axes can be aligned manually while fiber core alignment is automatic.  The splice machine has advanced functions of core-core/cladding-cladding auto-alignment and arc in situ auto adjustment to ensure very low loss and high pull strength joint for each splicing.   The ease of operation has been perfected in the manufacturing environment for over ten years.  In operation, the axes of the two PM fibers are manually aligned by rotating the holders while visually matching the stress patterns on display. Once the axes are aligned and locked in position, the fusion splicing will then be performed automatically by pushing a button.  The accuracy of the end face pattern alignment can be further improved/verified by an end face microscope or a real-time optical power/extinction ratio meter.  Although it is straight forward, for people without prior fiber splicing experiences, we offer half-day hands-on training at our facility. The basic splicer kit includes a battery, a cleaver, a stripper, a cleaning alcohol dispenser, and tissues.
