Koncetrik Connector

General Details

High precision fiber-core to ferrule-envelope concentricity and indexing measurements.

The Ferrule end-face geometry characteristics are key factors to the quality of patch-cords interconnections. While interferometry measurement tools can measure some of these characteristics (Radius of polishing, Apex-offset, Fiber height, …), they cannot measure the concentricity of the fiber core with respect to the ferrule outer envelope. Fiber-core concentricity can have various origins such as fiber cladding to core concentricity , ferrule envelope to bore concentricity and unmatched fiber diameter to ferrule bore diameter.
The result of concentricity is a loss in optical power at interconnections and therefore a loss in performances.
With this module, KONCENTRIK-V2 measures the concentricity of the fiber core with respect to the ferrule outer envelope of a connector with a 0.15µm precision. It also measures the position of the core with respect to the connector key with a few degrees of precision.

KONCENTRIK-V2 is a modular measurement system. Several mechanical modules adapt on it so that either fiber or ferrule concentricity measurements can be performed.

Koncentrik Ferrule

General Details

High precision fiber-core to ferrule-envelope concentricity and indexing measurements.

With this module, KONCENTRIK-V2 measures the concentricity of the ferrule bore with respect to the ferrule outer envelope with less than 0.15µm uncertainty. Other measured values are the angular position of the bore with respect to the connector key (tuning applications), the bore diameter and non-circularity errors of both the ferrule outer envelope and the ferrule bore.

KONCENTRIK-V2 is a modular measurement system. Several mechanical modules adapt on it so that either fiber or ferrule concentricity measurements can be performed.

Uses and Features

Application

Production of Reference and Master patchcords by pre-selecting the ferrules. Pre-tuning of ferrules so as to reduce the random mating insertion loss of fibre optic assemblies.

Key Features
  • Measure Ø2.5mm and 1.25mm PC-type connectors, other diameters available
  • Ferrule end-face visual inspection at x400 magnification
  • Accurate and repeatable measurements
  • User adjustable quality level for high-speed measurements

Koncetrik Farfield

General Details

High precision fibre to ferrule angular misalignment measurements.

The Koncentrik-FarField will enable you to measure the angular misalignment between the fibre and the ferrule axes in an optical connector as per the IEC 61300-3-26 standard.
The optical performance (Insertion loss) of a connector is mainly influenced by the fibre eccentricity and fibre misalignment.
You can now fully evaluate and manage the optical performance of your connections.

Uses and Features

Application

Applications range from quality assurance and supplier verification to ultra-low insertion loss connections.

Key Features
  • Measure SM and MM fibre types, all PC-polish connector types
  • Measurement data exported in standard CSV format
  • Data-base connectivity
  • Statistics on measurements available
