NEW - OPTICAL FIBER GEOMETRY MEASUREMENT SYSTEM

28 Jan 2016

Arden Photonics is pleased to announce the introduction of the FGC range of optical fiber geometry measurement equipment. The FGC range provides high speed automated measurement of fiber end-face geometry including core diameter, core non-circularity, cladding diameter, cladding non-circularity and core-to-cladding concentricity. Options are available for measuring large diameter fibers (up to 1mm diameter) and specialty fibers such as double-clad, non-circular (e.g. octagonal), multicore and PM fibers. Side-view coating options are also available.

Complete measurement takes under 20 seconds. Specially designed holders, fiber handling bench and traceable calibration ensure repeatability of < 0.05µm on core and cladding diameters.   

Features and benefits:

  • Measured up to 1200µm nominal cladding diameter
  • Standards compliant - have confidence in its accuracy
  • Measured dual-cladding, octagon cladding etc.
  • Compact, robust and reliable - means its ready for production
  • Consistent, repeatable fiber geometry measurements in minutes
  • Traceable calibration
  • Fiber handling included Arden, Vytran, Fujikura, and PK holders
  • Internal LED with consistent and fully filled launch condition
  • USB0 connection gives portability - with the optional carrying case plus a laptop computer

This product will be officially launched at SPIEs Photonics West trade show in San Francisco, CA, so come down to the Arden Photonics booth to check it out, booth #5543
