The product concept of the Z2C is to enable any user to "power through with ease". The Company's proprietary AI programmed fusion technology NanoTuneTM which has been newly incorporated to realize operability independent of user skills, will significantly improve work efficiency at optical network construction sites. Sumitomo Electric is committed to supporting customers with its advanced technology and quality products, obtained through an integrated system from development to manufacturing in Japan.
The main features of the new Z2C are as follows:
(1) Industry-leading environmental resistance The environment resistant design was made from scratch, and impact resistant rubber was designed and developed based on thorough impact analysis. As a result, it was confirmed that the device operates properly even if dropped from a height of 76 cm on its sides, corners, or edges. In addition, it has a high level of dust and water ingress protection of IP52*1, showing that it is a device that is robust even in high-temperature, high-humidity, high-altitude, or low-temperature environments. It will contribute to extending optical networks to every corner of the world.
(2) AI-programmed fusion splicing The Company's proprietary AI programmed fusion technology NanoTuneTM has been incorporated to support the splicing work so that high-quality fusion splices can always be achieved regardless of user skill level and the usage environment. In addition, the completely redesigned optical fiber clamps are compatible with loose tubes, eliminating the need for troublesome setting changes. Furthermore, the built-in video tutorial can be used not only for confirming work methods but also for in-house training, contributing to the development of experts.
(3) An integrated development and manufacturing system in Japan and worldwide service & support A fusion splicer is a precision device that requires submicron adjustment. To ensure that all products perform at a high level of quality, they are hand made by Sumitomo Electric's skilled workers in Japan. The splicers go through rigorous inspections before delivery. After delivery to customers, Sumitomo Electric authorized service centers support the machines to have optimal performance in each location.
