*1 Corresponding to optical fiber in compliance with ITU-T recommendation.

*2 This numerical number is the one when measured for the purpose to show the fusion splice characteristics in the testing method of IEC 61073-1, it is not the one to guarantee the splicing loss.

*3 Number of times that the fusion splicing of the fiber and the heat reinforcement can be performed continuously at a rate of once a 90seconds at the room temperature (20°C) condition when using a new 100% charged battery. The number of times you can use depends on the state of the battery and usage.

*4 The number of times will vary depending on the state of the electrode rod and the operating environment.
