Workshop Microscope PCE-VM 21

Multipurpose microscope ideal for electronics repair, quality assurance testing, medical instrument reprocessing inspections and more

The PCE - VM 21 consists of an optical microscope,CCD camera and LCD screen.Due to the 75 - fold magnification,it is possible to view very small parts,electronics and even medical instruments very clearly.The PCE - VM 21 inspection microscope reduces eye strain during soldering of printed circuit boards(PCBs),investigating of material defects on metal surfaces,and inspecting surgical implements for reprocessing, making the PCE - VM 21 industrial, healthcare or food / hygiene microscope a vital addition to your plant, shop, production line, quality assurance laboratory or instrument reprocessing clean room.

More information

Digital microscopes provided with the USB interface and possibilities of connection to the camera and PC have become widely popular in many spheres. Workshop Microscope application.Workshops’ equipment may be versatile, but particularly digital microscope is an indispensable must-be device that may be applied for numerous tasks. Modern microscope is of a relatively small size and very convenient to operate. Due to the accessories it may be very reliably secured on the table and the tasks can be not only carried out, but the whole process may be demonstrated on the monitor, or on the computer screen to a larger number of people. Not only industrial, medical, biochemical or educational laboratories, but also various workshops use the USB digital microscope not only for research and service, but also for demonstrating and educational purposes. The workshop may be small and specialize on different insignificant repairs, or really big one, like a professional service centre, it may be a jewellery or watch workshop – anywhere where the precise and accurate examination and eventually repair is needed, the microscope on a flexible arm and connected with the display turns out to be a very helpful device. Workshop Microcope application.The whole process may be documented (good-quality pictures) for a later procession and analysis. Due to the adjustable illumination of an object to be examined, magnification, through the workshop microscope the smallest invisible to an eye defects and damages can be detected or such processes as, for example, soldering may be carried out. The distance to the microscope, angle, size of the examined part – all parameters can be measured and registered. If necessary, the data from the workshop microscope can all be transferred to the PC and even printed (for example, for the customer).
