SMX Manta

SMX-Manta is a hand-held microscope probe designed for testing MTP / MPO and single-fiber connectors. The probe is used for the visual inspection of front surfaces for scratches, defects and impurities as well as for an automatic good / bad statement.

The microscope has a wide field of view, which can test multi-fiber connectors in less than five seconds. The handy, portable design and the high resolution of the SMX Manta is perfect for use in the lab and in the field.

Available with and without autofocus!Eigenschaften:

Large field of view (2.4 x 1.8 mm)

The probe inspects MTP / MPO connectors with up to 72 fibers in just two scans - including the entire face, if necessary, including the guide bore of the ferrule. For single-fiber connectors, check the entire face at once. Different, deviating also standard arrangements are freely configurable.
