Image Archiving and Documentation

Image capture and documentation is possible when the Lynx is used in conjunction with a digital camera attachment.

Digital camera options

Unicam

Integrated, permanently engaged 1.3 Mp USB2.0 digital camera.

Includes free AMCap software, which enables basic image capture in a variety of formats, including: BMP, JPEG, PNG, AVI and WMV.

DimensionOne™ software (option)

When more powerful imaging software is required, there is DimensionOne™ - professional image-capture, mark-up and measurement software.

Pixel-Fox

3.1 Mp USB2.0 digital camera. Includes image capture and mark-up software with simple measurement features.

Cannon EOS SLR Camera

Standalone 12.2 Mp digital SLR camera. Ideal when highest quality images are required for documentation purposes.

Accessories

The modular design of the Lynx Dynascope™ stereo microscope enables the user to select from a wide variety of mounting, illumination and camera options.

Oblique and Direct Viewer

Oblique and Direct Viewer

Allows the operator to view a subject from an angle of 34° from vertical, which can be rotated through to 360°, enabling a better stereo view of 3D subjects including PCB solder joints, holes, pillars and thread forms. Both manual and motorised versions are available.

Fixed Angle Viewer

Fixed Angle Viewer

Offers three options to the user: (1) a fixed angle of 25° from vertical (2) the ability to view vertically (3) tilting the optical head and using the system standing up.

Ergowedge

Ergowedge

Allows the view to be adjusted between -5° and -25° from horizontal.

Image Capture Archive and Documentation

Image Capture, Archive and Documentation

Range of standalone, USB and fully integrated digital/video camera options. Modular multimedia solutions are available for image archiving, acquisition, processing, analysis and documentation.

Step Magnification Multiplier

Step Magnification Multiplier

Allows the stereo zoom range to be increased by a factor of 1.5x or 2x without any loss in working distance.

Ergoriser

Ergoriser

Allows Lynx to be used standing up and allows for height variation of seated operators. ErgoRiser is placed between the zoom body and the head and can give 5 inches or 127mm of adjustment of the head height without changing focus, working distance or quality of the image.

Floating Stage

Floating Stage

High stability and sensitive controls allow for samples to be accurately inspected with steady manoeuvrability. Invaluable for inspecting fragile samples and for avoiding contamination by excessive handling. For use with Bench Stand and ergostand only.

Measuring/Comparison Graticule

Measuring/Comparison Graticule

Allows the user the ability to measure and compare against a scale, presented to one eye.
Standard range is available as a crossline or graduated scale. Custom graticules can be manufactured to specific designs.

Substage Illumination

Substage Illumination

Substage illuminator provides enhanced viewing of profiles, plus optimal control for applications requiring transmissive light.
Substage illuminator with tilting mirror provides pseudo darkfield illumination for enhanced contrast in applications such as stem cell research, or jewellery and stone setting.
For use with bench stand only.

Choice Of Stands

Choice of Three Stand Configurations:

 

Boom Stand

Boom Stand

Adjustable, swing away, boom mount for mounting directly to user's work surface or with coated platform base for easy transport.

Bench Stand



Bench Stand

Stable, focusable bench stand with subject holder, substage illumination and floating or measuring stage options.

Low-Profile Ergostand



Low-Profile Ergostand
Flat, stable, low profile metal base, covered with a non-scratch durable work surface for sharp subjects (solder joints etc).
A low profile base provides optimal ergonomics for hands and wrists. Ideal for manipulating subjects.
