The dimension of the MANTA V2+ are 7.5 cm (3”) height × 2.8 cm (1.1”) width × 23.3 cm (9.2”) length. The unit weighs 475 g (1.05 lbs) making it ideal for benchtop applications.

The inspection for MT end faces is a two scan process. The first step is to scan the left half of the end face. Rotate the the probe’s tip to scan the right end of the end face. The MaxInspect software will stitch the images together and consolidate the measurements into a single report.

The inspections times including the rotation of the scope would be:

  • 6.5 sec for 12 fiber MPO
  • 6.9 sec for 16 fiber MPO
  • 9.7 sec for 24 fiber MPO

The MANTA V2+ inspection scope running the latest version of the MAXINSPECT software measurement times are:6.5 sec for a 12 fibers MT end face6.9 sec for a 16 fibers MT end face9.7 sec for a 24 fibers MT end face.
