MAX-QM+ is a white-light and phase-shift interferometer for inspection of MT, MT-RJ, MTP®/MPO (PC and APC), SMA connectors/ferrules in a single scan. This interferometer features high testing speed, portable design, autofocus and a large field of view with the ability to test 16 fibers per row and up to 120 fibers per single scan.
The device connects to a laptop or desktop computer via USB 3.0 cable and 12V DC power adapter.
MAX-QM+ is supplied with the industry-leading MaxInspect™ software for interferometric inspection of fiber optic connectors.
