ProView LD™- Advanced Interferometer for Fibre Inspection and Measurement
04 Sep 2019
LASER COMPONENTS offers the new ProView LD™ from our partner NorthLab. This highly advanced interferometer measures and inspects fibre end faces with cladding diameters between 125 to 720μm.
The interferometer is specifically designed for production lines where a simple, fast and very accurate end face inspection is required. The system is also well suited for R&D environments and for fibre cleaver maintenance purposes.
The ProView LD™ provides a 2D and 3D topographic analysis of the end face surface. The software automatically indicates the angle, flatness and slope direction of the end face.
In addition to cleave angle inspection the system can also be used to measure several other properties such as fibre diameters and distance between defined points.
The unit has a unique fibre clamping mechanism which can accommodate standard fibre holders from Fitel or Fujikura but also allows the use of bare fibres.
The ProView LD™ has a compact design, it is connected and powered via a USB 3.0 cable and hosted by an external PC (not included).
