Eccentricity Test Equipments

Compliance of geometry of a tip ferrule to industry standards is a key factor for support of quality of fiber optical connections.  While the interferometer allows to measure some of these characteristics (radius of curvature of a surface of a tip, offset of peak of an end face concerning fiber center, burying or an overhang of an end face of a fiber concerning a tip surface), it can't measure an eccentricity of a core of a fiber of rather outside surface of a tip.

The new measurement system  Koncentrik of the Data-Pixel company allows to measure this parameter for rejection or selection of high-precision components in case of creation of reference components, and also for setup (tuning procedure) of optical connectors.

Key features of Data-Pixel Koncentriks:

  • Measure PC-type connectors (different diameters), ceramic and metal PC-type ferrule;
  • Ferrule end-face visual inspection at x400 magnification;
  • Automatic measurement + re-positioning of ferrule at tuned position;
  • Accurate and repeatable measurements;
  • User adjustable quality level for high-speed measurements;
  • Easy calibration Koncentrik Software;
  • Measurement data exported in standard CSV format;
  • Statistics on measurements available;

Koncentrik-V2 is High precision fiber-core\ferrule-bore to ferrule-envelope eccentricity and indexing measurements. The new KONCENTRIK-V2 is a modular measurement system. Several mechanical modules adapt on it so that either fiber or ferrule eccentricity measurements can be performed
