WANAQUE, N.J., June 28, 2011 — Keyence Corp. of America’s VW-9000 high-speed microscope is a fully integrated system that incorporates a built-in light source, an LED monitor, analysis software and PC components, and can be used for standard high-speed applications. It also doubles as a digital microscope for inspection and development work.

With a redesigned CMOS sensor, the instrument records high-speed processes at up to 230,000 fps and can capture video for up to 13 h. Conventional high-speed camera systems require several pieces of external equipment during operation (light sources, a separate PC and monitor) and can take several hours to set up. The VW-9000 is an all-in-one system, with all of the necessary components built in, so it can be set up and ready to operate in minutes, according to the company.

The controller supports color and monochrome cameras, and the advanced interface simplifies setup. High-speed recording is automatically played back in slow motion, allowing real-time adjustments during setup. A new “motion graph” function graphically displays changes in a target’s movement, reducing the amount of time needed to search for events of interest within a video.

Recorded footage can be edited and analyzed directly on the controller. The system automatically tracks moving objects in recorded footage to quantify speed, acceleration, distance and angle. An “error monitoring” function automatically analyzes repetitive movements to determine when an abnormal event occurs.

The compact design contains the functionality to perform both macro and micro imaging. Proprietary high-resolution digital microscope lenses can be used for greater magnification. Observation time can be significantly reduced with a large depth of field, suitable for targets with irregular surfaces. Lighting adapters and image optimization functions help eliminate the need for complex adjustments and allow low-contrast and highly reflective targets to be viewed in great detail.

GLOSSARY
camera
A light-tight box that receives light from an object or scene and focuses it to form an image on a light-sensitive material or a detector. The camera generally contains a lens of variable aperture and a shutter of variable speed to precisely control the exposure. In an electronic imaging system, the camera does not use chemical means to store the image, but takes advantage of the sensitivity of various detectors to different bands of the electromagnetic spectrum. These sensors are transducers...
color
The attribute of visual experience that can be described as having quantitatively specifiable dimensions of hue, saturation, and brightness or lightness. The visual experience, not including aspects of extent (e.g., size, shape, texture, etc.) and duration (e.g., movement, flicker, etc.).
monochrome
Made up of a single color.
