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:
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
