Gardco’s USB Microscope’s optical design combines the advantages of a USB-microscope digital camera with the precision optics of a microscope illuminated with LED lights.With the 20–200 times magnification, it permits determination of the fine structure of surfaces. This compact instrument is recommended for analyzing coating failures, imperfections, pretreatment quality and similar issues. It can be used in direct contact with the substrate or at larger distances. Its eight integrated white light LEDs are adjustable in strength, guaranteeing a clear view without causing reflections. Special software for editing and making videos comes with the unit. The software can determine the length, width, height and angle to the radius of the objects. The USB microscope is supplied with a magnetic microscope holder, which gives it a steady and straight position. It also enables it to be used in a vertical position on ferrous material, due to its three very strong magnets. It will take 2.0 megapixel pictures, which can be interpolated to 5.0 megapixel images. File formats include JPG and AVI.
