Dino-Lite Edge AM4515ZTL 5x~140x 1.3MP Polarizing Handheld Digital Microscope
The Dino-Lite Edge Polarizing Handheld Digital Microscopeis a
state-of-the-art CMOS (complementary metal-oxide-semiconductor) color imaging
sensor that comes with full range zoom magnification. As a new generation
digital sensor, this hand held microscope combines a number of important
features making it the ideal tool for a range of inspection.
Dino-Lite Edge Product Description
The Dino-Lite Edge AM4515ZTL is new model/new
generation device that is also an improvement on the earlier series and aimed
at enhancing user experience.
As a color imaging sensor, the Dino-Lite Edge
AM4515ZTL serves to detect and convey information that constitutes an image. As
such, it serves as an important tool for closely viewing and studying a range
of samples/objects. This is made possible by a number of important features
included in this hand held microscope.
5x - 140x Magnification
The Dino-Lite Edge offers 5x - 140x full range magnification
(continuous zoom magnification). This is a good range of magnification that
allows this handheld device to be used for observing various objects (coins,
stamps, leaves, engravings etc) closely.
Using the microscope, users can start
from lower magnification (5x) and gradually increase magnification while
viewing the object under investigation. This magnification range has also been
shown to be particularly ideal for such tasks as repair, assembly or working
with small fragile objects.
The Dino-Lite Edge AM4515ZTL also comes with
Dino-capture, which is a professional user friendly software that allows for such
basic features as image viewing and capture. The software, which comes in a
compact disk (CD) is fully compatible with Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8 & 10 and
allows for such functions as measurement and calibration.
The software, which is
robust and reliable, can also be used for such functions as live and time lapse
video, annotation, geotagging as well as auto and manual exposure control among
a few others. It is easy to install, which means that virtually anyone can
install it and start using it immediately. Because of fixed white-balance
calibration that is set by the manufacturer using jeweler's color balance,
color resolution produced using this system is excellent with high quality
Apart from the software that comes with the
device, users can also get the Free DinoVision Software on the internet. This
version is available for download and enables for easy drag and drop of the
image as well as splitting, overall and comparison. Many users will find the
software useful given that it allows for a number of other functions that may
be useful for given applications. In particular, the software has been shown to
be very useful in Forensics while other more sophisticated users use it for
manipulating images for given purposes.
Automatic Magnification Readouts
The automatic magnification readout displays the
magnification as the user increases or reduces the magnification when viewing.
Here, the automatic readouts allows for a clear view of the magnification with
ease making it easier to note the level of magnification that may have been
ideal for viewing a given sample.
The readings are displayed on the
Dino-capture software, which allows for repeated "dial in" to the
desired magnification setting by simply moving the thumbwheel and monitoring
the magnification level display on the software. This makes it ideal for
quality inspection environments.
The automatic magnification readouts (AMR)
also presents a big advantage in that increased accuracy is ensured by
eliminating the process of visually reading the magnification. In the process,
it also allows for the possibility to be further calibrated by the existing
calibration function in Dino-capture.
The Dino-Lite Edge AM4515ZTL comes with a 1.3MP
digital sensor with freely adjustable polarized LED light, a microtouch image
capture and an improved housing with a magnification lock as well as a strong
USB connection. The freely adjustable polarizer also helps reveal more detail
by increasing contrast on the surface by either reducing or eliminating
reflection. As a result, the user is able to get a better view of the sample,
making it easier to repair, read or manipulate the said area with ease.
the software has been installed on to a PC, the handheld microscope is very
easy to use, only requiring that the user bring it closer to the object of
interest and rotate the scale to either increase or reduce the magnification.
The handheld microscope comes with an enhanced working distance of up to 14
inches, which allows for a wide range of samples to be observed.
increasing working distance, users can observe a greater area of the sample
(with reducing magnification) and increased magnification with reducing working
distance. This is an important feature of the microscope that not only allows
for various samples to be observed, but also for a given sample to be viewed
under varying magnifications and different working distances to get a clear
view or given regions and points of interest.
The microscope also comes with eight built-in
LED lights, whose intensity can be easily controlled depending on the needs of
the user. Apart from the lights, the Dino-Lite Edge AM4515ZTL also comes with interchangeable nozzle
caps that can be interchanged when working with different working distances and
Extended WD cap,
Oblique lighting cap
The Dino-Lite Edge AM4515ZTL is an easy to use
microscope that can be used by virtually anyone. While it is used by
professionals in a variety of fields including Forensics and Electronics, the
Dino-Lite Edge AM4515ZTL can also be used at home by hobbyists and microscope
enthusiasts as well as kids. It presents a big advantage in that it is portable
and can be moved about with ease.
With a magnification range of between 5x and
140x as well as enhanced 1.3 MP color sensor, users are also ensured of high
quality images when viewing samples. Given that it is connected to a PC, the
Dino-Lite Edge AM4515ZTL allows clear observation of images and better sharing of the viewing experience with others.
The Dino-Lite Edge AM4515ZTL is a device worth checking out because it offers a number of advantages for both professionals and amateur users. It would also be an excellent tool to help kids view and learn about the fine details of a variety of objects around them including leaves, stumps, and coins to name a few.
