NOVA™ Operation Software Upgrade Kit

This new software kit upgrades NOVA™ polishers with the Enhanced Microfeed Feature.  This polishing routine provides greater programming flexibility for advancing components to the polishing surface at slower and more controllable rates.  Version 1 NOVA software was limited to 10 pre-programmed Microfeed rates, with the slowest being 100um per second.  Version 2 software allows a user to customize rates as slow as 5um per minute.  This yields precise removal of material stock and continual component advancement.  The Enhanced Microfeed is ideal for larger optical surfaces, delicate bare fibers, and connector air polishing.

V2 provides the ability to create "pop-up" window prompts in between each polishing step.  This is very useful as reminder to technicians to clean fibers, inspect polish lengths, confirm geometry, etc. before initiating the next process step.

New folder management allows programs to be organized according to connector types, fiber diameters, component, etc.
