Laboratory Microscope for Thick Fibers and POFs


(PresseBox) (Olching, ) LASER COMPONENTS expands its optical fiber business and introduces the FVD- 2080. The digital benchtop microscope made by the new partner JDSU is used to view connector and fiber end surfaces. This unit is connected to a PC via a USB interface - to evaluate and document the measurement results, the FiberCheckPRO software is included in the delivery. The image is depicted in two magnifications with a visible range of up to 1.7 mm x 1.3 mm: This allows particles < 0.5 μm in size to be visualized.

The FVD-2080 provides support in the pursuit of clean optical fiber surfaces which are crucial in high-power transmission. Even dirt particles or small scratches can cause the fiber to burn up. In plastic fibers, the surface quality can be assessed with the FVP- 2080 before and even during the polishing process.
