In order to meet the trend of ‘scientific and technological miniaturization’, enhancing production and testing processes are a must. When the precision sized products are successfully manufactured, quality inspecting at the microscopic level is needed at the same time. However, the naked eye can never match the rapid scientific and technological development in miniaturization. Therefore, innovative apparatuses that extend limited eyesight now become essential. Foreseeing the needs for miniaturized products, the X-Loupe G20 delivers ‘Microscopic Quality Control’ to achieve precision and efficient work execution, thus infusing new energy into “micro inspection”.

Having to use a SLR camera with a macro conversion lens, adapter ring, and ring flash etc., the traditional way for micro photographing is not only complicated but also time consuming. To simplify the process, the X-Loupe Portable Microscope Camera comes composed of a digital camera and a microscope module. With the innovative concept of replaceable objective lenses (1*), also the convenience and portability that a DSC possesses, X-Loupe will enable changes to come easily. Evolved from the A Series, now G20 features two different built-in light sources with internal and external rings (2*).

Optimizing the excellent optical zoom function, more than 10 different lighting options; to capture the image within 0.5 second and grasp at the object as small as 12mm- 5microns; more simplified operational speed that still retains the preciseness. The X-Loupe G20 efficiently presents the authentic micro images the users’ really needs, and to redefine the domain of vision.

Lighting is one of the most important elements for successful microphotography. The built-in continuous lighting of the X-Loupe is the key to simplifing what would otherwise be a complicated process. In addition to the fully dimmable coaxial illumination, the G20 provides ‘low-angled 3D quadrant projecting lighting. This low-angle lighting provides light from different directions and does not refect in to the lens of objects with a polished or highly refective suface.

1*. Magnification lenses range from 60x, 150x to 300x
2*. The internal ring :coaxial lighting; external ring :low-angled lighting.
3* Recommended for using the patented ‘Silicon Lens Contact Ring’ to prevent the lens from rubbing on the fragile or delicate object, to stabilize the lens and then reduce vibration while photographing. Also help to adjust optimal focus angle and distance while pressing on the ring.
