JDSU Westover P5000 Fiber Optic Microscope
FiberChek2 is an advanced application that determines the acceptability of optical fiber end faces through automated inspection and analysis. It identifies and characterizes defects and contamination and determines their location relative to the fiber core. It then provides a PASS or FAIL result according to a pre-configured failure criteria setting.
The P5000 digital probe microscope connects directly to a PC or laptop via a USB 2.0 connection, and the unique QuickCaptureTM button lets users capture, inspects, and analyzes a fiber end face image in a single automated step.
As different types of contamination are located and identified, FiberChek2 measures the size of each feature, determines its location relative to the core, and analyzes the collected data using an advanced logarithm to obtain a PASS or FAIL result based on parameters configured for each pre-defined setting.
Because defects and contamination on or near the core surface typically affect the light transmission most significantly, they require the most aggressive examination. FiberChek2 defines the concentric areas around the core as Zones which let users establish failure criteria by evaluating various defect categories, which include Contamination, Pit/Chip and Scratches.
