Probes for FDM-1 and FDM-2

Small in design, big on performance

Flexibility and high transmission rates – fionec offers custom-made fiber-optic solutions for fast signal and data transmission. The main fields of application of our specially fabricated fiber optics are in the areas of metrology and testing, telecommunications and life sciences. We develop probes for FDM-1 and FDM-2 with body and beam profiles fine-tuned specifically to meet your application.


  • Bare fiber – pure fiber probe without jacket. Standard diameter: 80 or 125 µm. 50 µm probe can be custom-manufactured on request.
  • Protected bare fiber – reinforced fiber probe with protective sleeve made of metal. Standard diameter: 0.8 mm.
  • Enhanced working distance – fiber probe with custom-fabricated beam profile for greater working distance. Standard diameter: 1.3 mm.
  • Custom solutions – We can develop custom probe types with other parameters or tailor-made solutions specific to your application on request!

Test and Measurement Technology

Miniaturized precision

fionec’s miniaturized measuring probes are especially suitable for demanding applications in the micro and precision manufacturing sector. With diameters starting from just 50 µm, they allow for fast, contactless scanning of fine surface microstructures and the smallest of cavities. The fiber optic measurement sensors are used in our FDM Series distance measuring systems, among others.

  • Detecting surface roughness and waviness micro-drilled holes, on precision optics, on small gears
  • Inspection of geometric and position tolerances (GD&T)
  • Highly accurate distance and position detection
  • Measurement of expansion, drift and vibrations
  • Measurement of freeform surfaces in scanning mode for 3D modelling

Data and signal transmission
