The VHX-600E digital microscope produces sharper, high resolution observation images by applying optical and digital technologies to the processes from lighting to image generation. This microscope provides a depth of field at least 20 times larger than optical microscopes. Thus, the VHX-600 can accurately observe a target (even with a large height difference) that could not be focused on with conventional microscopes. It includes a UXGA (1600 x 1200 pixels) high-resolution 15-inch LCD monitor which displays the observed images as well as the measurement information. Displayed images can be saved onto the integrated HDD or CD-R/RW drive. The VHX-600 microscope offers real-time measurement of the distance, radius, angle and area of a target on the monitor screen. It can measure a target repeatedly while changing the visual field. This function is useful for measurement at various positions of a target. The area measurement and surface-profile capturing capability of this digital microscope has been applied in research work for surface roughness estimation of the fractured specimens.
Available magnification steps: 20x, 30x, 50x, 100x, 150x, 200x, 500x, 1000x, 2000x, 3000x, 4000x and 5000x
The VHX-600 creates a 3D image based on automatically captured images, and it calculates height profile data on a desired measuring line. The digital microscope enables the study of fracture surfaces and determination of height, width and height difference data on a measuring line. Thus, arbitrary cross-section profiles on 3D images and a volume surrounded with the rectangle on a 3D image can be measured. Image analysis software based on the Depth from Defocus (D.F.D) method, provides a way of obtaining 3D depth data through analysis of defocus of 2D images. Even if a completely focused image cannot be captured, the VHX-600 Series calculates a height difference of the target. Thus, the VHX-600 Series enables depth composition and 3D image display by using less sample images than conventional microscopes, resulting in improved efficiency.
The low-velocity impact response (up to 3.7 m/sec) of a variety of materials and components can be tested with charpy, izod or punch-shear test fixtures. Load vs deflection data up to failure can be plotted for each of the impact tested samples.
The corresponding cumulative energy absorption is generated using Trapezoidal numerical integration method. Data from these tests can then be used in the evaluation of material or component performance. Non-ambient impact testing is possible through use of an environmental chamber.
