NEW 3D Image for Norland CC6000
Norland Products has added a new feature to the Norland Connect-Chek 6000. After the interferometric measurement of the fiber optic connector end face, it will automatically generate a 3D image showing the measured radius of curvature, offset and fiber height. This feature allows customers to get immediate visual feedback on the endface geometry of their connector. The 3 D image will help them better understand their quality control and quality assurance issues and get the most from their high performance fiber optic connectors. NORLAND Connect-Chek 6000.
Norland Products has taken the knowledge gained from over 20 years of interferometric measuring experience to
produce the first low cost, automated, non-contact interferometer for fiber optics. The Norland Connect-Chek ®
CC6000 automatically and precisely measures radius of curvature, apex offset of polish, and fiber undercut or
protrusion on any PC or APC single fiber connector. 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.
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 designed 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 key 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 slight tilted angle to produce circular fringes across the fiber. This 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, 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
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 own 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 guaranteed due to our patented locking v-groove mount which
holds the connector in an exact, repeatable position during calibration and measurement. The system has been
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 radius of curvature and apex offset of pre-radiused bare ferrules. There is nothing
else like the Norland Connect-Chek ® CC6000 – Accurate, affordable, and easy to use.
