SMX-Manta-W+ Probe

Manta-W+ is a revolutionary handheld microscope primarily designed for testing of MTP/MPO and SMA connections.

The whole MTP/MPO connector is tested in just one scan.

Featuring resolution of a benchtop microscope, the probe gives the possibility to check multi-fiber, SMA and single fiber connectors in the field. Manta-W+ can be used for visual inspection of the connector end face for scratches, defects and contamination, as well as for automatic Pass/Fail testing based on IEC standards.

Features and Benefits

Large field of view (4.1 x 3.0 mm)

Test MTP/MPO connectors with up to 72 fibers in just one scan, inspect entire ferrule surface including guide holes if needed. Check the whole SMA connector endface in one shot.

Compact and ergonomic design

Use the probe as a handheld or a desktop unit.

Autofocusing

Push the button and get results.

Detailed high-resolution picture

Enjoy high accuracy testing with 1.8 µm resolution and 0.75 µm defect size detection capability perfect for testing both multi-fiber and single fiber connectors.

Wide variety of tips

Inspect single fiber, multi-fiber, SMA, OptiTip/OptiTap connectors and other military connectors, both the patch cord and bulkhead side of fiber interconnect.

Extended working distance

Get inside patch panels to test MTP/MPO and other connectors.

Pass/Fail LED indicator

See Pass/Fail result without looking at your tablet.

Software

The SMX-Manta-W probe is used with MaxInspect™ software package for visualization, capturing and detection/analysis of connector defects.

Automatic inspection mode

Fast testing procedure saves you time and increases productivity.

Pass/Fail criteria

The software is provided with predefined Acceptance Criteria as standardized by the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) for single mode and multi-mode connectors or you can utilize YOUR own Pass/Fail criteria for your specific needs/applications
