3D Interferometer

Benefits / Features

Precision measurement of the optical connecter end-face shape is essential because the end-faces of the connected optical connectors need to have an appropriate convex spherical surface to ensure a stable and reliable connection.

The 3D optical connector end-face measurement system series, SMX/MAX, incorporate a non-contact interferometer microscope that automatically measures the end-face shape of single-/multi-core connectors. It complies with the relevant IEC standard.

The operational quality of an optical connector production line can be improved thanks to a compact chassis and high-speed measurement capability, in addition to high measurement accuracy and ease of handling.

The strong points of SMX series

SMX series MAX series

Compact and portable design

The SMX series is compact and lightweight so can be used in any work location. Since the power is supplied through a USB cable, no external power supply is required.

Specialized PC is not required

By simply installing the software and driver on Windows PC, you can quickly start the measurement.

High resolution optics and Fast measurements

Its high-performance image sensor, which has a wide field of view and high resolution, achieves extremely accurate measurement without pixel loss. Compared with the SMX series, the MAX series enables even higher-resolution measurement (model dedicated to single-core) or even higher-speed measurement (models dedicated to multi-core or dual-purpose single-/multi-core)
SMX series

Wide range of fixtures

The exchangeable mounting jig enables measurement of special optical connectors such as E2000 and MIL-ST, in addition to the standard SC, LC and FC optical connectors. With the MAX series, the connectors to be measured can be set more easily
SMX series

No Anti-vibration table required

Anti-vibration countermeasures are included so it can be used at any work site.

No settings

By the adoption of precision machined fixture, adjustment work is rarely necessary.

Features and Benefits of “MaxInspect”

Automatic Scratch Detection

SMX series
It performs automatic admission decision by analyzing the image at the time of the optical connector end surface shape measurement. Conventionally, the end face scratch detection and the end face shape measurement were separate steps. However, the SMX series devices can do both at the same time. As a result, SMX series devices contribute to the reduction of working time and number of steps.

Easy, modern, intuitive user interface

SMX series
Iconified user interface for each function is possible to operate intuitively. No need to worry about mistakes in operation.

※ Possible display languages are English, Chinese and Russian

Suitable Design for mass production

Report Output Function

SMX series
Output format is HTML, EXCEL and PDF. It is possible to output the calculated maximum, minimum, average and deviation value of each measurement data in summary form. You don’t need to calculate the measured value.
