DIGITAL MICROSCOPE KEYENCE has released its latest microscope system, the VHX-2000. The VHX Series Digital Microscope was designed to alleviate the shortcomings of traditional, optical light microscopes-shallow depth-of-field, short working distance, lack of portability and versatility and sample limitations. By integrating advanced zoom optics with a CCD camera, 17" LCD monitor, light source, controller and analysis/reporting software, the VHX streamlines testing and improves the speed and efficiency of the inspection process. With a magnification range from 0.1x - 5000x, the VHX Series enables a wide range of microscopic observation from macro-scale stereoscopic imaging to the detailed analysis of an SEM. Many lighting techniques are also supported including bright and dark field, transmitted, polarized and differential interference observation.
