Visual inspection from stereo microscope to digital microscope
I think many tests are performed using a stereo microscope on the inspection line.
Inspection using a stereo microscope is extremely tiring and places a considerable burden on the inspector.
Therefore, many people are thinking of replacing their stereo microscope with a digital microscope.
However, there are many types of digital microscopes, and if you don't choose the best one, you may end up putting an unnecessary burden on yourself.
There are three points to keep in mind when replacing a stereo microscope with a digital microscope.
Three important points for replacement
1. Choose a model with a high frame rate
The digital microscope displays images on a PC or monitor.
If the frame rate is low, the projected image will not move smoothly, causing additional stress.
Frame rate is expressed as a number, but the number that people don't feel uncomfortable with is around 50 to 60 fps.
When the speed drops below 30fps, the sense of discomfort becomes noticeable.
Types that can be connected to a PC often have low frame rates due to USB communication speed issues.
Therefore, we recommend choosing a monitor direct connection type.
2. Choose a model with good color reproduction
The appearance will differ depending on the camera used for the digital microscope.
For this reason, there are some items with good color reproduction and others not so good.
If colors don't look good, people's brains will feel uncomfortable and this will lead to stress.
Even if a red object looks a little orange, it can make you feel uncomfortable and stressed.
If you choose a full high-definition camera, the color reproduction is relatively high, so you can get clear images.
3. Choose a model with a wide dynamic range
I don't think you've heard the term dynamic range very often.
To explain briefly, when you project a bright object and a dark object at the same time, if you adjust the brightness of one, the other may become blown out or blown out.
In order to eliminate this phenomenon, a camera with a wide dynamic range is required.
Dynamic range is a status that a camera has, but it also varies depending on the camera.
Compared to general-purpose cameras, the human eye is very good and has a very wide dynamic range.
The main reason why things look different when viewed with the human eye and through a camera is often due to the difference in dynamic range.
There are models that emphasize a wide dynamic range, so I think it would be best to choose one of those models.
The recommended model is
We also have models that meet all three points above.
full high definition microscope
Frame rate = 60fps
Color reproducibility = Very clear resolution due to full high-definition resolution
Dynamic range: Wide with HDR (high dynamic range) function
We also have a demo machine, so please try it out.
