Powerful, flexible and intuitive HD digital microscope incorporating our new 30x HD Camera module. Ideal for industries such as medical device, pharma, precision engineering and electronics. Unique, patented, high-speed image processing algorithms for exceptional image quality. Super-fast focus speed and smooth digital zoom. Simpler, easier, more efficient inspection.

Features

  • 2D Measurement & Graticules

    Point to point measurement and annotation of samples and creation of graticules utilising the AshCal™ calibration.

  • Super-Fast Auto-Focus™

    Place any part under the camera and it will immediately adjust the focus position allowing you to quickly and seamlessly inspect your part without having to adjust manual focus or change the height of the part.

Features

  • SpotFocus™

    Quickly focus on the area of interest by simply using the mouse pointer. Improve accuracy and reduce human error with the capabilities of SpotFocus™.

  • Image Stacking

    Inspex 3 automatically captures several images at different focal depths to create a fully focused, sharp, clear image for easy inspection. Save time by removing the need to adjust the camera height or manual focus.

    Presets & Graticules
    Graticule creation allows samples to be analysed against on-screen digital templates with set tolerance limits. It also enables quick go/no-go defect analysis. This improves efficiency in high-volume sample through-put inspection. Presets can be customised to store and easily recall specific system settings and measurement detail.
  • Watch
    AshTruColour™ – True Colour Reproduction
    View true colour reproduction of your sample with the Inspex 3. Replicate real and accurate colours as seen with the naked eye for true colour representation.
  • Watch
    Networking
    Networking enables direct saving to the server or cloud for increased workflow efficiency.
  • Watch
    Advanced Camera Settings
    The new Advanced Camera Settings gives the user more power to enhance the image for a wide range of inspection and measurement capabilities. Tailor sharpness, contrast, saturation and camera shutter speed to suit your particular application.
  • Watch
    RTLDC™
    Real-Time Lens Distortion Correction (Global Patent Applied For). Lens distortion is inherent in all microscopes. Image distortion at the outer edges of large samples is automatically corrected by the Inspex 3.
  • Watch
    No Video Latency
    The video from the Inspex 3 has zero delay. It’s 3x times faster than our previous systems. View parts in real time with no video lag, allowing you to comfortably inspect, rework, modify and assemble any part. There is no delay between movement under the camera and what you see on the screen.
  • Watch
    User Privileges
    User privilege settings enables operational control and traceability. Assign multiple users with access to different settings and features, improving security and streamlining the inspection process.
  • Watch
    Improved DoF
    The Inspex 3 has improved depth of field, making inspection much faster and more efficient without the need for changing focus positions or adjusting camera height.
