Most noteworthy, the CC6000 automatically and precisely measures the radius of curvature, apex offset of polish, and fiber undercut or protrusion on any PC or APC single fiber connector. Furthermore, the breakthrough technology used in the CC6000 is unlike any other system on the market today and now allows interferometric connector analysis to be affordable to all users. Also, the CC6000 features pc APC auto pass-fail low-cost end face geometry.

PLUG & PLAY USB INTERFEROMETER

This compact interferometer attaches to a PC or laptop through a standard USB port and uses the exclusive CC6000 software to control the interferometer and measure the connectors. No custom boards or complicated configurations are required. Simply install the software, plug in the CC6000 and run. Our user-friendly software allows anyone with minimal experience to accurately measure the 3D end face geometry of a fiber optic connector.

The CC6000 is for both the factory or the field to provide the crucial quality information needed to assure the long-term performance of your fiber optic connectors.

  NO MECHANICAL ADJUSTMENTS

The Norland Connect-Chek ® CC6000 is the next generation of interferometric technology for fiber optic testing. This new system uses proprietary software that enables it to evaluate the critical parameters without the need for costly phase-shifting devices.  The CC6000 uses our unique Tilted Phase Analysis ( TPA ) in which the connector is held at a slightly tilted angle to produce circular fringes across the fiber.  provides all the information needed to measure the connector.  After a simple calibration to measure the tilt,  the advanced algorithms enable our CC6000 to calculate the spherical radius of curvature.  Also the spherical fiber height, and apex offset for the connector.  An added advantage of TPA is that any small angle is suitable, so no mechanical adjustments are ever required.  

   

  EASY TO USE Interface (pc APC auto pass-fail low cost end face geometry)

The CC6000’s user interface is ultra simple with every option visible under intuitive Menu Tabs. Just a click of the mouse calls up the Measure, Setup, Calibration, or History Window. Everything is preset to allow pass/fail measurements of PC and APC connectors using IEC, Telcordia, or your custom standards. Precision mounts are available for all types of connectors and ferrules. Data can be saved to any directory on a network and imported to any database or spreadsheet.  

PRECISION OFFSET MEASUREMENTS

The CC 6000 is extremely robust and designed for accurate measurements in production, laboratory or field environments.   Precision offset measurements are available due to our patented locking v-groove mount.  Consequently, the connector is in an exact, repeatable position during calibration and measurement. The system is optimized to provide unsurpassed stability so that a single offset calibration will last for weeks.   Mounts are available for 2.5 mm., 2 mm., 1.25 mm., and 0.0625” diameter connector ferrules. In addition to measuring connectors, it can also measure the radius of curvature and apex offset of pre-radiused bare ferrules.   The CC6000 features pc APC auto pass-fail low-cost end face geometry.  There is nothing else like the Norland Connect-Chek ® CC6000 – Accurate, affordable, and easy to use.

What is different about the CC6000?

NORLAND PRODUCTS INC. has taken a whole new approach to interferometric measurements of fiber optic connectors with the CC6000. As a result, the benefit to the customer is affordable quality control and quality assurance of high-performance fiber optic connectors.

 Unique Tilted Phase

Interferometry creates a circular fringe pattern on the connector. It is easiest to visualize this pattern as a topographical map of the surface. Each fringe is ½ a wavelength distance above or below the adjacent periphery and shows the 3D height difference across the surface.  Thus, the spherical radius of curvature and spherical offset are correlated to the diameter and spacing of these circular fringe patterns.   Our unique algorithms take advantage of the extra information available when the connector is tilted slightly off axis to measure the fiber height. The spherical fiber height measurement is possible in the circular fringe pattern. Crossing the fiber is an indication of rounded protrusion or undercut.  Accurate measurements are possible because the difference in fiber height is proportional to this change.

PRECISION OFFSET MEASUREMENTS

Another novel feature is the ability to calculate the apex offset of the polish even in the preset tilted position. When the connector is perpendicular to the optical path, the apex offset is the distance from the center of the fiber to the highest point of the polish. Rotating the connector will not change the offset measurements because the center of the fiber is the center of rotation for the ferrule.   If the connector is in a tilted position to the optical path, the apex offset is the distance from the center of rotation tothe highest point of the polish. With the CC6000, the center of rotation is calculated for any mount by measuring the connector in 8 positions. The multiple apex points define a circle with the center being the center of rotation. Once this calibration is performed on a mount, the apex offset measurements can be accurately calculated for all connectors measured in that mount.

These are just two of the unique concepts used to create the CC6000. For you, the customer, this breakthrough in technology means there is no other instrument on the market that can match it for fast, accurate, and affordable measurements of endface geometry for PC/APC connectors.

About FiberRep

About Channel Partnering with FiberRep….

FiberRep is a “channel partner” who partners with Manufacturer’s or Producer’s to market and sell the Manufacturer’s products, services, and/or their fiber optic technologies.

Traditionally, FiberRep has supported “Factory Direct Representation” only.  After several requests, FiberRep is expanding “channel partnering” to include the following channel relationships:

Referral Partners

Referral partners effectively pass leads by email, telephone or in person. Referral partners are typically remunerated with a commission although this may either be per lead or per sale.

Drop Shipper 

A drop shipper is effectively a retailer or reseller who sells products without actually taking stock. This is typical for online shops who can easily take an order through their website and then pass the order details to the manufacturer or vendor to ship the product directly to the customer. i.e. your products on my website for sale benefiting from my “niche” Traffic.

Affiliates

Most commonly affiliates solely drive web traffic and are remunerated per visit or per sale

Manufacturer’s Rep (exclusive or non-exclusive representation).

A manufacturers’ representative (rep), also known as independent Sales Representatives or sales agent, is an individual, sales agency or company that sells a Manufacturer’s products to engineering, labs, datacenters, networking providers, wholesale and retail/end-user type customers.

When a Manufacturer hires a manufacturer’s rep firm, this usually means that a contract is signed between the two companies, which empower the rep to sell, or solicit sales for the Manufacturer’s products as an agent in a defined territory. The products are usually ordered directly from the Manufacturer, who then pays a sales commission to the manufacturer’s rep firm. The commission rate varies according to the market and the product type. It can be anything from 1% to 50%, although a more typical commission rate would be 10% to 25% for low-cost or consumer products and 12% to 15% for high cost or industrial products.

Reasons to Channel Partner

  • Accelerate sales growth.
  • Extend your marketing: Reach buyers or segments not adequately served online or by your sales team.
  • Make it more convenient for your customers to purchase (local presence)
  • Cost effective alternative to hiring your own sales force.
  • “Niche Market” Technical support
