Arden Photonics has introduced the VFI-1200, an interferometric inspection system specifically designed for checking the end-face quality and flatness of cleaved, polished or lensed fibres with diameters of 125-1200µm. Crisp end-face images show up every defect and high contrast fringe patterns make it easy to estimate end angles. The 5-megapixel camera helps to show every detail and enables a 6x digital zoom.
The VFI-1200 comes with an efficient software package which enables users to grab, save and print images. This gives you the ability to record vital QA data and produce reports. Other useful software features include intensity line profile, intensity histogram, auto-optimisation of intensity, end angle estimation, pseudo-colour rendering, and the ability to review stored images.
