FGC-GA Geometry System

The FGC-GA is the all-in-one solution for precision measurements of the geometry of the widest range of optical fibers, V-groove arrays and ribbon connectors. With one unit, users can completely characterize V-groove block geometry, core-to-core pitch and core X & Y offset of multifiber arrays up to 27 mm in width. With a huge 1200µm field of view as well as an automated lateral scanning stage the FGC-GA can give you all the results you need.

Darkfield Illumination

The Arden Photonics darkfield illumination system allows the software to show a clear live image of the array. This allows users to inspect and image the front face of array, and take measurements of the V grooves themselves. The FGC-GA with image stitching can produce a full image of the entirety of the V-groove array in perfect detail.

Efficient Software

The FGC comes with an efficient software package containing controls to switch between reflection and transmission mode. This allows users to quickly and easily get both core and cladding geometry measurements including diameter, non-circularity and concentricity. The software contains measurement templates for all standard telecoms fibers, however users can also create their own. This allows the measurement of many special fiber types including dual clad fiber, bend insensitive fiber, multicore fibers, polarisation maintaining fibers and many more.
