MAX-QS is a white-light and phase-shift interferometer for inspection of single fiber ST, FC, SC, LC, MU, E2000 (PC and APC), small format multi-fiber MT-RJ (PC and APC), SMA and special connectors. MAX-QS features portable design and a resolution of 1.1 micron.
NEW The system is also available with autofocus function (optional). Ask for MAX-QS+ system.
The device connects to a laptop or desktop computer via two USB 3.0 cables – for MAX-series and via USB 3.0 cable and 12V DC power adapter – for MAX+ series.
Sumix interferometers are supplied with the industry-leading MaxInspect™ software for interferometric inspection of fiber optic connectors.
