Vytran to Display Newest Optical Fiber Splicer at ECOC 2012

MORGANVILLE, NJ--(Marketwire - Sep 12, 2012) - Vytran, an innovative supplier of optical fiber splicing and processing solutions, will display its newest optical fiber splicer, "CAS-4100," at the European Conference and Exhibition on Optical Communication (ECOC) 2012 exhibition from September 17-19, 2012, in Amsterdam. ECOC 2012 will be Vytran's first showing of a CAS-4000 Series product in Europe.

"We developed our CAS-4000 Series of optical fiber splicers to provide customers with one-box, easy-to-use systems that quickly and efficiently produce the low-loss, high-strength splices typical of filament fusion technology," said Jean-Michel Pelaprat, Vytran president and CEO. "Showing the CAS-4100 at ECOC will allow attendees in Europe to get a sense of how the systems could be used in their particular applications -- from erbium-doped fiber amplifier production in telecom to creating the splices and fiber-based components critical for optical fiber sensing and fiber lasers."

Released in the U.S. in early 2012, Vytran's CAS-4000 Series comprises the CAS-4100 and CAS-4100-P. CAS splicers are compact, semi-automated, high-performance systems that can be used to splice standard and specialty fibers from 80 microns in diameter. They are ideal for development applications and high-volume manufacturing in markets ranging from fiber laser and medical to aerospace and telecom. CAS-4100-P is tailored for polarization-maintaining (PM) fibers.

In CAS systems, all components, including the computer and display, are embedded into the splicer to form a single unit ideal for use where space is at a premium. All CAS systems feature Vytran's One Step Splice™ process software to make fiber splicing and process control simple and user friendly. CAS splicers also feature USB and Ethernet ports to allow external splice control and data export for statistical process control.

At ECOC, Vytran's CAS-4100 will be displayed at distributor AMS Technologies' booth (#458). For added convenience, attendees can schedule appointments to see the CAS-4100 and discuss their specific fiber splicing applications with Fernando Terceiro, European sales manager, at
