High resolution 2D/3D surface profiles
The 3D surface view enables you to see the volume image of the fiber and the ferrule. Explore surface details.
Fast scan modes
Measure single fiber in 1-4 seconds.
Wide range of fixtures
Inspect single-fiber connectors, ferrules, bare fibers, MS termini, both PC and APC.
High contrast optics
Inspect connnectors made of different materials (glass, metal, plastic) and buffer zones.
Compliance to industry standards
Test per IEC, Telcordia or your own Pass/Fail criteria.
Automated inspection software
Measure radius of curvature, apex offset, fiber height, etc.
Configurable report generation and data archival
Document your results your way.
