Fiber Optic Ferrule Concentricity Core Eccentricity Measurements

The CentrocGP is a specially designed auto-focus microscope with a digital camera and precision chucks. The system performs measurements of fiber optic core eccentricity with respect to ferrule outside diameter of connectors and provides the basis for angular tuning of PC-type (@ post PC polishing) and APC-type (@ pre-APC polishing) connectors. The PC controlled unit is equipped with universal active devices (LEDs @ 475nm and 630 nm) for connector types equipped with 2.50mm and1.25mm ferrules.  Fiber Optic Ferrule Concentricity Core Eccentricity Measurements

Measurement fixtures are available for all standard connectors and ferrules. The system collects a pre-selected number of focused imaging scans from the fully filled illuminated fiber core. Between the scan, the connector is rotated in steps of 45, 60 or 90 degrees. Digital images are processed by  machine vision software and the following results are supplied:

  • The Eccentricity Amplitude as defined from the center of the ferrule outside diameter to the fiber core center
  • (Quick switch between Eccentricity and Concentricity outputs is available)
  • The Eccentricity Angle relative to Key Orientation
  • The Cylindricity of ferrule outside diameter

  Indicated are:  

  • Reference for Centered or Tuned connector
  • Product identification, operator, and unit identification
  • Statistics of measurement results
