FPM F Series
Large Display Optical Measurement Systems
The FPM F Series is our largest series of test systems for up to 110″ displays.
Our FPM F Series can be setup to run many standard VESA, ICDM, TCO, ISO, SPWG and other display optical 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.
Mount up to 3 instruments at a time. Software control integration for most of the popular optical instruments available
Test Pattern Generators
Automated control of the Westar T-Drive LCD Tester and many other popular test pattern generators on the market today
Test without moving the display
All of our FPM F Series systems include a five-axis motion system comprised of a three-axis instrument deck and a two-axis gimbaled optical probe to perform measurements while the display remains fixed and in an upright position. This design allows for viewing angle measurements without moving or rotating the large and heavy display module thus avoiding potential mechanical strains and unexpected thermal gradients within the display or TV.
Up to 67″ Displays
For medium or large displays, our FPM-520-FO is designed to perform full optical performance tests on displays up to 67” (170 cm).
Up to 84″ Displays
For large displays, our FPM-530-FO is designed to perform full optical performance tests on displays up to 84” (213 cm).
Up to 110″ Displays
For very large displays, our FPM-540-FO is designed to perform full optical performance tests on displays up to 110” (279 cm).
Full optical characterization
Our FPM F Series can be set up to run many standard VESA, ICDM, SAE, 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.

Works with optical instruments from all the popular brands
Our Display Measurement Systems work with more LMDs than any other display measurement system. Our systems support standard photometers and spectroradiometers from Topcon, Photo Research, Optronic Laboratories, and Minolta. This broad range of available instrument interfaces allows you to pick the best instrument for the job
Install and control up to 3 instruments
The FPM F Series can be customized to accommodate (hardware integration) up to 3 optical instruments depending on your display metrology needs. The FPM F Series comes standard with a fiber-coupled spectrometer and options for up to two additional direct-view instruments. The FPM F Series supports the following instruments:
Automated test pattern generation
Of course, automated display testing doesn’t stop with the instrument and a positioning system. You need to automate display drive using a lcd tester or test pattern generator that can drive display modules or finished products.
Our most popular lcd tester for display drive is our T-Drive III but as with optical instruments, our ViewPoint software can interface with most test pattern generators on the market today. We even offer custom software interfaces to work with specialty LCD drive equipment.
TestStand - Automated Test SequencerFor automated test scripts, the FPM F Series can be controlled using NI TestStand. Any controls in ViewPoint are available via test objects (steps) in TestStand making it easy to build elaborate test sequences. Westar offers many standard test sequences and can help you design your own custom test sequences depending on your display metrology needs.
- Access motion base, instruments, test pattern generators, and other supported devices using test objects
- Structure test steps into sequences and subsequences with global and local parameters
- Powerful development interface for sequence design and debugging
- Easy to user interface for sequence operation and control.
- Access Microsoft Excel for data reporting
ViewPoint - Manual Control Interface
The FPM F Series comes with a sleek user interface for manual control called ViewPoint. In a single interface, the user can control the instruments, light sources, test pattern generators, and motion base. ViewPoint can be customized with software controls for your specific instruments, test pattern generators, and power supplies.
- Access motion base, instruments, test pattern generators, and other supported devices
- Multi-view dockable GUI windows – arrange multiple DUT Control, Motion Control, and LMD GUIs
- Property grids for easy parameter input
- Enhanced CIE chromaticity charts (NTSC reference gamut, multiple measurement points, print graphs)
- Enhanced measurement history and reporting tools (print standard measurement reports from the MCI).
Our FPM F Series comes standard with Microsoft Excel for data reporting. Use one of our pre-formatted reports or design your own.
