SMX-Manta and SMX-Manta+
SMX-Manta is a handheld microscope probe primarily designed for testing MTP/MPO and SMA connectors. The probe can be used for visual inspection of the connector end-face for scratches, defects and contamination and for automatic Pass/ Fail testing.
NEW The system is also available with autofocus function (optional). Ask for SMX-Manta+ system.
The probe features a large field of view enabling to test multi-fiber connectors in just two scans taking less than 2 seconds. High resolution of SMX-Manta and its portable design allow for using the probe in a lab and in the field.
Features and Benefits
Large field of view (2.4 x 1.8 mm)
Test MTP/MPO connectors with up to 72 fibers in just two scans, 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.
Minimize operator’s actions to just one click.
*available with SMX-Manta+ modification
