NEW OPTICAL FIBER GEOMETRY MEASUREMENT SYSTEM

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:
  • Measures up to 1mm nominal cladding diameter
  • Standards compliant - have confidence in its accuracy
  • Measures dual-cladding, octagon cladding etc.
  • Compact, robust and reliable - means it is ready for production
  • Consistent, repeatable fiber geometry measurements in seconds
  • Traceable calibration
  • Fiber handling includes Arden, Fujikura/FITEL/Sumitomo holders
  • Internal LED with consistent and fully filled launch condition
  • USB2.0 connection gives portability - with the optional carrying case plus a laptop computer
