Benchtop Microscope

Polaris is a high-end benchtop microscope for visual inspection, analysis and certification of single and multi-fiber optic connectors in production and laboratory environment.

It was designed for critical examination of the polished fiber end faces and may serve as a reference system to check inspection results of lower resolution microscopes on the production line.



Maximum contrast and resolution for accurate inspection

Check your single and multi-fiber connectors for the finest defects as small as 0.2 µm in diameter and scratches as small as 0.4 µm in width.

Fully automated movement along MPO connector endface

Let the system move from fiber to fiber and keep track of fiber numerical order by itself. No manual manipulations, no guesswork about the fiber number, no missed fibers.


Minimize operator’s actions to just one click.

User-friendly software

Easily get a Pass/Fail result, manage inspection criteria and navigate through inspection results.

Detailed information on anomalies

Use your inspection results as a reference for lower resolution microscopes on the production line.
