Display Measurement Systems - FPM V Series

FPM V Series Display Optical Measurement Systems

The V Series FPM-505W 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 laptop and monitor LCD modules for production QA/QC, the FPM-505W is the solution for you.

The baseline FPM-505W includes a five axis motion system housed in a lightsafe enclosure and a controller computer with software interface (manual and automated control). While one of the major benefits to the FPM-505W is flexibility in interfacing with instruments, test pattern generators, etc, the FPM-505W really shines when it comes to its testing capabilities. The FPM V Series not only can handle accurate, repeatable measurements such as luminance, contrast ratio, and luminance / color uniformity, but also can run fully automated optical tests like color vs viewing angle, gamma, and gray to gray response time.

Our FPM V Series can be setup to run many standard VESA, ICDM, TCO, ISO, SPWG and other display measurement tests as well as many customized tests; too many to list. 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.


  • Supports a wide variety of optical instruments, test pattern generators, and peripheral test equipment

  • Enclosed in a (light safe) cabinet ideal for bright or dark rooms

  • Supports simple optical performance measurements such as luminance, chromaticity, response time, flicker, and many more or fully automated optical performance test suites such as VESA FPDM, ICDM, TCO ‘99 / ’03 / ’05, and ISO 13406-2

  • Fully automated 5-axis motion base with spot tracking


  • Optical performance tests of cell phone display modules, tablet displays, and laptop displays for R&D and Engineering

  • LCD tablet, notebook, and monitor production QA/QC

  • Military and Aerospace Display Measurements

Supports Most Optical Instruments

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.

Supports Most Test Pattern Generators

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
