Saelig Company Inc. has announced the MV200UM, a new 2 megapixel USB digital microscope for capturing magnified images and video for display on a PC using a simple USB 2.0 PC connection. The USB-powered MV200UM contains a built-in white LED illumination ring for viewing circuit boards, tiny components and markings, examining traces and solder joints on printed circuit boards, or for detailed product examination and record-taking, inspection, and quality control purposes.
Plug-and-play operation with the included software allows objects to be magnified using MV200UM’s full-color 2 megapixel sensor on any Windows PC. Two interchangeable clear ring-stands of different heights allow separation from objects, providing up to 200x magnification on a 17-in. monitor with the MV200M’s 1,280 x 1,024 pixels.
The microscope can also be handheld at distances of 8mm to 200mm for inspecting parts at lower magnification. Fields of view can be as small as 1.9mm x 1.5mm, or as large as 82mm x 65mm. Moving images can be displayed at 30fps in VGA resolution via the USB 2.0 interface too. The software included allows snapshots, video recording, taking time-lapsed pictures, and making calibrated measurements.
