Each stress measurement system by Stress Photonics consists of a GFP™ (Grey Field Polariscope) camera head, an illuminator, and a framework that ties the system together.
All of the test stands, test stand accessories, lenses, illuminator accessories, and other accessories by Stress Photonics are designed to be interchangeable and customizable.
We offer a range of solutions to match your budget. Browse the items below and then contact us to discuss all of the available options.
In addition to the typical components and applications listed below, those specific to the TS4000 include:
The test stand is a complete stress analysis tool that provides accurate and consistent measurements using any of our cameras.
*Option available at an additional price
In addition to the typical components and applications listed below, those specific to the GFP 1600 FPI include:
The Flat Panel Illuminator is a complete stress analysis system that can accommodate large glass samples, including, automotive windshields, sidelites, backlites, and sunroofs, or any size architectural glass.
*Option available at an additional price.
In addition to the typical components and applications listed below, Stress Photonics can further customize virtually any test stand model.
Trays like the GS107 Test Stand Glass Tray can be quickly interchanged. The tray hangs on a fixed column plate, but can easily be removed and exchanged.
Sample specific jigs and mounts can be built into the slotted tray and installed when needed.
The trays can also hold frosted glass to add a diffuse illumination element, particularly if an illuminator head is used as the illumination on the test frame.
Quickly and easily mount the GFP1600 camera head with a GS105 Rack and Pinion Camera Mount.
The GFP™1600 Handheld can easily be placed on a glass surface to inspect small defects.
The GFP™1600 is compatible with most C-Mount lenses, including:
The standard lens provided with the GFP™1600 is a fixed focal length lens. The available lenses are 5mm, 8mm, 12mm, 16mm, 25mm, and 50mm.
C-Mount spacer rings are available and are used when it is necessary to decrease working distance and/or to decrease image size.
Microscope objectives are often used when determining stress on small details such as, flaws, edge grind, or contact points.

S-Mount Lens Specifications:
Often the S-Mount lenses can be operated closer than the optimal working distance of 150mm to acquire small images in a compact and economical way.
Specialty lenses such as macro lenses can be used to image between normal and microscope ranges.
For distances farther than 1000mm, multiply the working distance in mm by the image size.
The Monochromatic or RBG LED Illuminators by Stress Photonics are typically built with a tray of LEDs. The illuminators are available in single color or in RGB for full retardation range (±1200nm).
Illumination is controlled via software that enables the user to turn the light on and off for sample alignment; it also enables automatic light control during data capture.
The LED illuminators stay on during data capture, but do not flash.
These octagonal stackable calibration artifacts can be aligned against a straight edge to give 0, 45, 90, 135, 180, 225, 270, and 315 degree orientations.
The calibration disks also can be stacked to achieve various total values.
The disks are finished with a circular polarized film centered at approximately 550nm.
