The VFI-200 is an interferometric inspection system specifically designed for checking the surface quality and flatness of your cleaved or polished fibers. The VFI interferometer has proven itself in Research, Production and QA environments.
The VFI comes with an efficient software package containing controls to switch between fringe and inspect mode built in. It also allows users to grab and save images for later use. The report generator enables users to include up to 20 cleave images in one report along with comments. Other features include – intensity line profile, intensity histogram, auto-optimisation of intensity, end angle estimation, radius of curvature estimation, psuedo-color rendering and review of stored images.
Factory fitted options
The VFI can be ordered with factory fitted extras to more fully meet the particular specification that you require. The standard fiber handling stage can be replaced with a laterally adjustable stage designed for quickly and efficiently imaging ribbon structures.
Furthermore, we realise that the VFI is used in conjuction with precision splicing and cleaving equipment. So by using adaptor plates the VFI can accommodate industry standard fiber holders from Fujikura, Vytran, and FITEL. Please note that because these holders are designed for use with other equipment they cannot be used to self calibrate the VFI. IF you would like to self calibrate an Arden holder must be used.
If you want to use the VFI with another type of holder please contact us as our engineers may well be able to help design an adaptor plate to suit your requirement.
