WANAQUE, N.J., May 20, 2009 – The VW-6000 series motion analysis microscope manufactured by Keyence Corp. of America has high-speed magnified video capture capabilities. High-speed motion recording at rates of up to 24,000 fps enables accurate filming of failures in moving targets that cannot be captured by conventional microscopes. The microscope’s space-saving size, portability and all-in-one design simplify recording for research and development on the factory floor or on a production line.
The built-in light source and LCD monitor mean setup takes just minutes. The macro zoom unit with built-in lighting allows flexibility of light coverage and observation at any angle.
The controller supports both color and monochrome cameras. The advanced interface simplifies the setup procedure, rendering the instrument suitable for use by novices. High-speed recording is automatically played back slowly, enabling real-time adjustments during set up.
The “time advance” function allows users to record video at fixed intervals for targets that move continuously. Comparison of multiple videos recorded over the course of a few days will help to identify changes from production start to finish.
Recorded footage can be edited and analyzed directly on the controller. The microscope automatically tracks moving objects in recorded footage to quantify speed, acceleration, distance, angle and other measurements. Users are able to quantify and analyze motion.
The VW-6000’s compact design contains the functionality to perform magnified observation and record still images. High-resolution proprietary digital microscope lenses can be used with the instrument for greater magnification. Observation time has been reduced with large depth of focus, beneficial for targets with irregular surfaces. Halation removal reduces time spent adjusting lighting to reduce glare.
