FiBO 250

CONNECTOR ADAPTERS

Patented Connector Adapters utilize a high-precision kinematic interface to guarantee positioning within a fraction of a micron. The adapter is engaged by both the ferrule and the body of the connector to ensure proper keying orientation and more accurate results for APC measurements. All adapters are precisely pre-aligned and certified at the factory eliminating the need for calibration when switching between different connector types or between PC and APC polish.

Available Connector Adapter Types

  • ST, FC, SC, LC, LSH, MU
  • PC (UPC) and APC polish
  • Custom adapters also available
FERRULE ADAPTERS

Patented Ferrule Adapters utilize a high-precision kinematic interface and a split sleeve clamping mechanism to guarantee positioning accuracy of the ferrule within a fraction of a micron. All kinematic adapters are precisely pre-aligned and certified at the factory eliminating the need for calibration when switching between different types.

Available Ferrule Adapter Types

  • Bare Ferrule: 1.25mm, 1.6mm, 2.0mm, 2.5mm, 3.2mm
  • Custom adapters also available
BFC – BARE FIBER CHUCK

The BFC™ facilitates endface geometry measurement of cleaved and polished bare optical fiber. Machined aluminum and steel constructions utilize an easy-to-load clam shell design and V-mount groove to prevent damage to fibers during loading. An optional Loading Station* can also be used to assist with sample preparation and alignment. The BFC interfaces with the Variable Angle Tilt Stage*(VATS™) for angled endface metrology.

Specifications
BFC™ Dimensions: 60mm x 18mm x 18mm
Tip Dimensions: 3.2mm O x 7mm
Minimum strip length: 4mm

Available Sizes (Striped fiber diameter)

  • BFC-001    70 – 100 microns

FST – FIBER STUB TOOL

The Fiber Stub Tool is an accessory for endface geometry measurement of polished fiber stubs. This convenient tool makes it easy to measure the radius of curvature, fiber height, apex offset, angle and cleanliness of small fiber stub components.

Features

  • Enables measurement of all endface polish types
  • Precision spring-loaded tip
  • Quick action plunger controls stub release
  • Balanced ergonomic design
  • Compatible with FiBO adapters

Specifications
Fiber stub diameters: 1.25mm and 2.5mm
Fiber stub lengths: 2mm –12mm

Calibration Targets

Calibration targets set FiBO apart from the competition. Each FiBO is shipped with three calibration targets for fast and easy calibration at any time. An optional NIST/ISO traceability certification is available for the 2D Calibration target and 3D Calibration Target.

  • 2D target calibrates optical magnification and imaging distortion
  • 3D target calibrates wavelength and phase shifting module
  • Apex Offset target calibrates out residual angle error of kinematic interface
