The brand new AM3715TB handheld digital microscope is the first Edge series microscope to feature 60 hz stroboscopic illumination. Key upgrades from the AD3713TB include a new generation Edge-series 640 x 480 digital sensor with state-of-the-art design and a new housing with magnification scroll lock. The new sensor offers better image quality and sharpness with less aberration and vignetting, and the microscope also features detachable and interchangeable nose caps which change working distance to better fit the application.
Under stroboscopic illumination mode, the 8 white LED lights flash at a constant 60fps at 640 x 480 resolution, effectively "freezing" rotating objects such as fan blades, rotors, impellers or drill bits. This makes it ideal for machine tool applications and dynamic failure analysis. For optimal results the environmental lighting should be lower than normal and the AM3715TB should be closer to the object being viewed. Alternatively, strobe mode can be turned off and the LED's will function normally in the standard on/off setting.
Along with continuous zoom magnification, the new AM4115-FVT also features another "first" for the AM series, a new removable front cap, similar to those found only on the AD series microscopes. This allows for use of a wide variety of included interchangeable caps such as a sealed cap for dust protection and an open cap. These caps provide additional imaging flexibility and can be interchanged or removed for greater standoff working distance at high magnification settings.
The AM3715TB also incorporates the 2nd-generation housing with smoother focus wheel movement, magnification scroll lock and reinforced USB connection that resists twists and pulls. The magnification lock is particularly useful for repetitive inspection at a given level of magnification.
Dino-Lite offer a wide range of stands, which are recommended for all but the lowest magnification levels. For your convenience, we have selected some of the more popular stands for this microscope. Simply select one of the above which are offered as optional items.
This Dino-Lite microscope includes software for Windows PC only (DinoCapture 2.0), compatible from Windows XP through Windows 8. We have found the software to be robust and reliable with some great features as follows: image capture, storage and email, live and time lapse video (up to 30fps), annotation, geotagging, full screen capability, auto and manual exposure control, picture within picture zoom (magnifier) and more. Measuring software is versatile and includes a calibration slide for accuracy. Measuring capabilities include linear and geometric as well as circular and point-to-line. Above all the color resolution is excellent due to fixed white-balance calibration which is set at the factory using a jeweler's color balance. Finally, images can be stored in a wide range of popular formats including JPG and BMP among others.
FREE DinoVision Software
There is also additional, free software available for download: DinoVision enables easy image drag-and-drop, split, overlay and comparison, which has proven useful for Forensic Scientists and more sophisticated users where image manipulation is important.
