Fiber Curl Measurement System

CURL400

Manufacturers of optical fiber and optical fiber cable are increasingly being required to provide specifications on the degree of curl in the fiber that they are either making or using.

The CURL400 system went through a few iterations in design which has resulted in the earliest delivered units being put into 'non support' mode, intermediate delivered systems will be in 'limited-support' mode where support is provided on a best effort basis, while later units are still in 'supported' mode meaning full support and service is provided. For details and information on which support mode applies to your system,&nbsp;please contact your local PFO sales representative or click the 'Enquire NOW' button below.</div>

  • Measures the degree of curl in optical fibers
  • Curl measurement range of 0.7 to 99m
  • Typical measurement time less than 40 sec (including fiber preparation)
  • Measurement as per IEC-60793-1-34 and TIA-EIA-455 FOTP 111

The CURL400 has been designed to provide robust and accurate measurements of Curl in fibers in a production environment. 

It complies both with IEC and TIA. 

The CURL400 measures the curl on 10mm of free fiber, using a technique called “Dual Beam Differential Laser Triangulation”.

The major benefit of this dual beam method is that the beams are fixed in relation to each other; one acts as the reference for the other and as such the system becomes insensitive to any mechanical influences relating to the rotational and fiber holding mechanism, making it far more repeatable and accurate that the alternative microscope image based measurements that need a mechanical reference for the measurement point.
