Description

The Aven 26700-300 zipScope is a tabletop, 2.0 megapixel digital microscope that has a USB interface, eight white LED lights with two intensity settings, a snapshot button for image capture, optical magnification of 10X to 50X, and digital magnification of 200X. This digital microscope enhances the resolution of an object or image, and connects to a computer for image display. It is commonly used for quality control (QC) inspection, medical and scientific research, geology, mineralogy, chemistry, and for printing and textile inspection.

This microscope has an adjustable magnification of 10X to 50X, and comes in an all-in-one, compact lens. A 1/2” complementary metal-oxide semiconductor (CMOS) color image sensor manages noise reduction and image quality. The microscope has a shutter speed of 1 second to 1/1000 of a second. The frame rate is 30 frames per second (FPS) at 2.0 megapixels. The zipScope uses eight white LED lights with two intensity settings to control illumination. The microscope has automatic white balance to control brightness, and automatic exposure. A snapshot trigger captures images, and the microscope outputs images or video to a PC. A large, manual focus wheel adjusts focus in a 10 to 500 mm range. The microscope body has a rubberized, anti-slip coating for durability. Included software has image (JPEG and BMP) and video (AVI) capture functions. The microscope comes with an adjustable metal stand that includes height and angle adjustment. The zipScope has a one-year warranty.

Microscopes are instruments used to enhance the resolution of an object or image. Types include compound, stereo, or digital. Compound microscopes use a compound optical system with an objective lens and an eyepiece. Stereo microscopes show object depth in a three-dimensional image. Digital microscopes are used to display an image on a monitor, rather than looking through a lens. Microscopes can have monocular (one), binocular (two), or trinocular (three) eyepieces, with varying magnification abilities. Magnification ability refers to the size of an image. Resolution, also known as resolvant power, refers to the clarity of the image. The interaction between field of view (FOV), numerical aperture (NA), and working distance (WD) determines resolution. Microscopes can control magnification through a fixed focus, or through a range of adjustments. They can also utilize LED, fluorescent, and mirror light sources to help control viewing capabilities. Microscopes are widely used in education, lab research, biology, metallurgy, engineering, chemistry, manufacturing, and in the medical, forensic science, and veterinary industries.

Aven manufactures optical inspection tools, precision tools, and bench accessories for industrial, scientific, and research applications. The company was founded in 1983 and is headquartered in Ann Arbor, MI.
