The DSX microscopes from Olympus provide advanced analysis, while being simple for every user to use, regardless of their expertise.
Consisting of three models, the DSX100 free-angle wide zoom microscope, the DSX500 high resolution upright microscope and the DSX500i high resolution inverted microscope, Olympus can provide a complete inspection system to meet the needs of applications across R&D and quality control. These include inspection and analysis within the automotive industry, paleontology, geology, PCB manufacture, fibre structure, micro-channels, metallography and the geometry of small parts. Every user can get expert results, without the need to understand microscopy.
As computer based systems, the DSX series are driven by a user friendly graphical user interface with touch-screen functionality. All three members of the DSX family operate in the same computer-based manner, meaning that operators can easily move from one model to another without the need for specific training.
Image analysis is highly intuitive, with the DSX preview screen facilitating the quick and simple selection of the best optical technique, without the need for any time-consuming adjustments. The system will automatically generate a selection of preview images which are shown as thumbnails for each technique - brightfield, darkfield, differential interference contrast (DIC) -all the user needs to do is touch the screen to indicate their preferred imaging approach.
Providing an option to suit all users, there are a number of selectable modes. The tutorial mode helps to guide operators who are new to the process, while the advanced mode provides an additional level of flexibility to a user with a basic level of knowledge. Furthermore, the operator mode allows customization of the interface so as only the required functionality is visible for routine work. The operator mode also allows user profiles to be set-up so as specific protocols, especially those of the more advanced user which have been fine-tuned and tailored to specific requirements, can be quickly and easily saved and recalled.
In combination with the high dynamic range (HDR) and WiDER functionality, which reduces contrast and increases clarity, users can easily obtain high-fidelity images with no halation or blackouts.
