is the high-magnification, high-resolution optical imaging system integrated into all of our splicing systems that detects and displays a fiber’s inner core structure. It calculates and allows accurate alignment in the X and Y plane as well as rotational alignment through its unique end-view feature. This vision-based alignment, combined with 0.01-µm stepper motor, is used for precise fiber core positioning prior to splicing, and also for accurate splice loss determination afterward. A proprietary algorithm calculates splice loss for a variety of similar or dissimilar fiber types. Additionally, it can be interfaced to external test and measurement equipment, such as power meters, spectrum analyzers and polarimeters.
