NorthLab Interferometer ProView XD


NorthLab's ProView XD™ is a highly advanced interferometer for precise measurement and inspection of fiber end faces with cladding diameters between 220 to 1200 μm. The interferometer is specifically designed for production lines where a simple, fast and very accurate end face inspection is required. The ProView XD is also well suited for R&D environments and for fiber cleaver maintenance purposes. The ProView XD includes highly advanced and fully automatic functions for 2D and 3D topographic analyses of the end face surface. The software automatically indicates the angle, flatness and slope direction of the end face. To simplify the inspection process even further the ProView XD can be set to a “PASS/FAIL” mode. This function allows the operator to simply determine the end face quality via color codes on the image. In addition to cleave angle inspection the ProView XD can also be used to measure several other properties such as fiber diameters and distance between defined points etc. The ProView XD has a unique fiber clamping mechanism which can accommodate standard fiber holders from Fitel or Fujikura but also allows the use of bare fibers. Custom made clamps or adapters can be offered on request. The ProView XD is delivered with a universal sized v-groove clamp assembly.
