DORC's ZX-1 micro Array+ Specifications

Multi Fiber Reproducibility and Repeatability

Measured Parameter Reproducability - One Sigma Repeatability - One Sigma
Angle (X and Y) 0.015 degrees 0.005 degrees
Fiber Height 15nm 10nm
Reproducibility based on 50 measurements re-inserting connector between measurements
Repeatability based on 100 measurements without disturbing the connector between measurements

MT/MPO® connector reproducability and repeatability is somewhat determined by the polish quality and surface geometry


Single Fiber Reproducibility and Repeatability

Measured Parameter Reproducability - One Sigma Repeatability - One Sigma
Radius of Curvature 0.5% 0.25%
Apex Offset 3.0µm 1.0µm
Fiber Height 2.5nm 1.5nm
Reproducibility based on 50 measurements re-inserting connector between measurements
Repeatability based on 100 measurements without disturbing the connector between measurements


Single Fiber Measurement Range

Radius of Curvature 3mm - Flat
Apex Offset 0-500µm (value calculated if outside of captured frame)
Fiber Height ± 6µm



Other Specifications

Principle of Operation Michelson Interferometer (non-contact system)
Measurement Speed <45 seconds for MT/MPO® connectors. <1 second for single fiber (ex. auto-focus)
Field of View 3.0mm nominal - in the horizontal axis. Entire MT connector in the vertical axis
Operating Wavelengths 470nm to 645nm depending on mode (solid state sources)
Power requirements 100-120V and 210-250V AC 50/60Hz auto sensing

Due to continued product improvement, specifications are subject to change without notice.
