The FPM H Series is one of our most flexible optical performance measurement solutions that is scalable to your display measurement needs. Whether you need to test cell phone display modules for engineering development purposes, ruggidized displays for aerospace and military applications, or TV LCD modules for production QA/QC, we have a FPM solution for you.
All of our FPM H Series systems include a five axis motion system and a controller computer with software interface (manual and automated control). We offer four models based on your display size requirements starting with our smallest FPM-500 system for measuring up to 12″ displays up to our largest FPM-530 system for measuring up to 72″ displays.
One of the major benefits to our FPM H series is flexibility in interfacing with instruments, test pattern generators, and other test equipment; these systems really shine when it comes to their testing capabilities. The FPM H Series handles accurate, repeatable measurements such as luminance, contrast ratio, and luminance / color uniformity, and also runs fully automated optical tests like color vs viewing angle, gamma, and gray to gray response time.
Our FPM H Series can be setup to run many standard VESA, ICDM, TCO, ISO, SPWG and other display measurement tests as well as programmable customized tests. We offer test sequences that cover most display measurement requirements or you can write your own. Contact Us to learn more about the FPM capabilities.
Ideal for small to mid-sized displays and devices such as cell phone, tablet, and notebook displays requiring full optical characterization. This mobile system is ideal for use in a engineering laboratory or production QA/QC department.
Ideal for medium sized displays such as laptop displays and LCD monitors. Configured with an orthogonal goniometer, the system easily handles deep and heavy display assemblies such as avionics, military ground vehicles, and ruggedized industrial displays.
The FPM-520 is the system of choice for AMLCD panel makers world wide. With a 48″ (122 cm) polar goniometer, this workhorse serves triple-duty by performing precision optical measurements on notebook panels, monitors, and large area flat panel TVs.
For very large displays, our FPM-530 with its 72” (183 cm) polar goniometer can handle the largest commercially available flat panel displays. The FPM-530 is ideal for optical measurements of large flat panel monitors or finished LCD TV products.
Each FPM can mount at least 2 optical instruments at a time and depending on the instruments up to 4. Our controller software, ViewPoint, interfaces with most optical instruments on the market today. If you already own an instrument but need an automated system, we most likely have a remote interface already available for manual or automated control. No more manually clicking measure or using limited instrument manufacturer software. However, if you don’t already own an instrument, your system can be configured with one. Check out our Instruments or Contact Us to find out which optical instrument is right for you.
Of course, automated display testing doesn’t stop with the instrument, a good lcd tester or test pattern generator that can drive display modules or finished products is a must. Our most popular lcd tester for display drive is our T-Drive II but as with optical instruments, our ViewPoint software interfaces with most test pattern generators on the market today. We even offer custom software interfaces to work with speciality LCD drive equipment. If you need a test pattern generator as part of your optical measurement system, check out our LCD Testers or
