Measurement

Measurement mode:
phase shift and white light
Scanning and calculation time*:
Measurement time may vary depending on computer performance and connector end face shape.
1.4* sec (single fiber)
7** sec (MT12)
* 50 MHz, standard connector
** 50 MHz, MT12 connector with small X, Y angles.
Repeatability C.F.*:
* Values were calculated from 30 consecutive measurements without interaction on connector between measurements (connector fixed) and represent one sigma value.
ROC: 0.9% (MT12); 0.04% (SC/APC)
Fiber Height: 0.8 nm (MT12); 0.1 nm (SC/APC)
Angles: 0.005 deg (MT12); 0.0002 deg (SC/APC)
Apex Offset: 0.04 µm (SC/APC)
Repeatability C.R.*:
* Values were calculated from 30 consecutive measurements with removing and inserting connector between measurements (connector reloaded) and represent one sigma value.
ROC: 1.2% (MT12); 0.05% (SC/APC)
