SMX Manta-W+

SMX-Manta + W + is a hand-held microscope probe designed for testing MTP / MPO and single-fiber connectors, in particular SMA connector. 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 an extra wide field of view, which can check multi-fiber connectors in one run. The handy, portable design and high resolution of the SMX-Manta-W + is perfect for use in the lab and in the field.


Large field of view (4.1 x 3 mm)

The probe inspects MTP / MPO connectors with up to 72 fibers in one scan - 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.
