Manual Video Systems

Video systems provide for easy manual measurements using a video image and precision encoders. An operator views a video image and adjusts the zoom magnification, lighting, and focus as needed. A metrology readout or software enables a variety of measurements.

   Sol
   Micro-Vu's new Sol Measurement System provides a versatile solution for precision part inspection. The Sol significantly reduces inspection times and increases inspection capabilities. The Sol features one micron resolution scales and InSpec Metrology Software for Manual Vision Systems. InSpec Metrology Software includes automated edge detection, automated focus detection, geometric dimensioning and tolerancing, and reporting. Programmable lighting makes features stand out. When features are accentuated, they are easier to measure and results are more repeatable. The programmable 6:1 zoom make small features conspicuous and simple to measure. The Sol replaces the popular Vector machine.

  • Image Capture Capabilities
  • Multiple Edge Detection Tools
  • Focus Detection Tool for Precice Z Measurements
  • Automated 6.5x Zoom Lens
  • Programmable Multi-Sector LED Surface Ring Light
  • Collimated LED Profile Light (Back Light)
  • Programmable LED Coax Light (Through the Lens)
  • Precision Linear Bearings
  • 160 x 160 x 160 mm Stage Capacity
  • 315 x 315 x 160 mm Stage Capacity
  • 315 x 315 x 250 mm Stage Capacity
  • Onscreen Scale, Grid, and Crosshair
  



Optical Comparators

Optical comparators project a magnified profile or surface image of a part onto a glass screen. An operator adjusts focus and position as needed. A metrology readout or software enables a variety of measurements.

   Spectra
  

The 500HP Optical Comparator is a portable 12" optical comparator offered at a very affordable price.

Precision optics provide bright, accurate images. A wide choice of magnification lenses is available. Optional "Thru-the-Lens" surface illumination shows surface detail without projecting light around the machine.

Spring clips for overlays come with the system. Mounting brackets for dial indicators are included, but indicators are not.

Metrology Software

InSpec Metrology Software provides the power of geometric dimensioning and toleracing, reporting, and data collection while simplifying the operators role in measuring parts. Software is included with all automated systems and is optional for manual systems.

   For Automated Systems
   Micro-Vu's InSpec Metrology Software is powerful, yet simple to use. Visit one of our dealers and put it to the test before you buy. Point-and-click "programming" is further simplified with centrally located icons and a fixed window display.


Schematic view (top left) and video image (bottom right) are always displayed. InSpec is easy to use for manual measurements too.

Use InSpec software on automated or manual systems. Still running DOS? Micro-Vu offers affordable upgrades for most older Micro-Vu systems.

  



   For Manual Systems
  

Micro-Vu's InSpec Metrology Software is powerful, yet simple to use. Sure every one says that, but visit one our dealers and give it a test. Point-and-click programming, centrally located icons, and a fixed windows minimize programming time.



The schematic view and video image of part are always visible.

InSpec goes beyond a measuring digital readout with a large display and robust set of measuring functions.

InSpec is easy to use for manual measurements too.

Use the same software on automated and manual systems. Still running DOS? Upgrades are available for older systems at an affordable price.
