MAX-Quantum

MAX-Quantum is a high-end automated interferometer for inspection of single and multi-fiber connectors of MTP/MPO, ST, FC, SC, LC, MU, E2000 types as well as MT, MT-RJ ferrules in a single scan.
MAX-Quantum provides simultaneous end-face geometry inspection, anomalies detection and guide hole parallelism and angles measurement.

This interferometer features high optical resolution, autofocus and a large field of view with the ability to test 16 fibers per row.
