SpecPro™ Connector Polisher

SpecPro™ is designed to yield singlemode performance for R&D and medical applications, low volume cable assembly production and field environments. Up to four components can be simultaneously polished, including industry standard connectors, multifiber ferrules, MIL-spec termini, optical bundles, endoscopes and bare fibers. An integrated air-polish routine is available, and SpecPro is also ideal for repairing and retro-polishing damaged connectors. SpecPro™ incorporates Krell’s unique independent suspension feature for more uniform and consistent polishing at each connector position. Krell’s SpecVision™ Video Inspection System can also interface with SpecPro™ for in-line viewing of fiber finishes. In addition to its compact and portable packaging, SpecPro™ features both AC and battery operation.

Our rotating platen (in which polishing film is placed on a glass disk/rubber pad) lies directly upon the polisher baseplate. Both consist of aluminum that is ground to a high level flatness tolerance. Additionally, a quality control run-out measurement inspection(i.e. up/down movement) is perform
