Select Tutorial, Operator or Advanced Mode to best match the experience of your operator and the job at hand. Operator Mode can be customized to speed up routine work. The operator's ID and password open the application, and automatically sets the scope to the operator's preferred mode, observation, analysis, and measurement settings.
Even first-time users can follow the suggestions of the system and it will create the image that meets their needs.
Provides the flexibility and power advanced users need while retaining an intuitive and simple to use interface.
This customizable mode is ideal for routine work as all non-essential menus can be eliminated.
New Touch Screen User Interface
In the past, operators had to make complicated adjustments on their microscopes to achieve their desired results; with the DSX500, it's simple. Once the sample is in place, everything is controlled by touch screen, computer mouse or joystick - inspection position, focus, zoom, illumination, and choice of inspection methods. All controls are direct and easily performed. In addition, auto-focus and auto-gain ensure illumination and focus are correct every time.
Macro Map: Always Know Where You Are
As you adjust the zoom magnification to a higher level the area you can see at one time is reduced. The system automatically records a full field of view image in a separate macro window. On this full field image your location on the sample is noted and updated as you move your sample. In addition, if you use the panorama function it will be displayed in the macro window to provide the same convenience on an even larger area.
Macro map always shows where you are
Optical Zoom Gets You Closer to Your Sample
Zoom in on your sample
Change the magnification to fit your needs with continuously variable optical zoom. The DSX500 gives you an optical zoom up to 13x and a digital zoom all the way to 30x. A single optical lens can cover the typical magnification range of conventional optical microscopes. Plus, two lenses can be mounted at once for an even greater magnification range. When you switch lenses, DSX500 automatically adjusts magnification so the viewing area size is maintained.
The leading-edge digital technology of this microscope lets you see more than any other microscope can. Before, only experts with years of experience could adjust microscopes to achieve optimum images. The DSX500 allows any operator to do that with an easy to use interface. Now all it takes is a touch of the finger to follow a few easy steps to achieve the ideal image for inspection or analysis.
Best Image Function Ensures Optimum Performance
Now you can operate your system just by choosing the image that works best for you, and the DSX500 will set the necessary parameters to achieve that image. That ensures the best possible image, whether looking for defects, uneven surfaces, or foreign objects. Anyone can operate the system, beginner or expert, and it can be customized for each operator or advanced user.
HDR Gives High-Definition Visuals that Go beyond the Human Eye
Samples may appear differently depending on the quality of material, surface conditions, or illumination methods. The High Dynamic Range (HDR) function of the DSX500 combines several images taken at different exposures to very accurately correct brightness differences on the sample surface. HDR provides high-fidelity images that show not only textures but also flaws and defects that were undetectable before. Glare can also be reduced for more comfortable observation.
HDR - Enables high-definition inspection even in areas that have both high and low reflectance materials
WiDER Provides Easy Inspection of Samples with High Reflectance Difference
If the non-reflective area cannot be seen, merely increasing the illumination power is often not enough, because glare can occur. Olympus intelligent image processing technology eliminates these problems with WiDER, a proprietary system that works effectively with live images, is ready to go at the click of a button, and takes care of the high contrast problems in real time. No blackouts. No glare.
A click removes imaging problems caused by different materials
Change Observation Methods with One Click
A click of a button gives you the image you want on screen
With virtually every industrial observation method at hand, it's easy to choose the proper one for the current task. No complicated adjustments needed.
MIX Observation Method Easily Detects Defects and Imperfections
MIX combines BF with DF LED illumination, something conventional microscopes cannot do. With bright-field visibility and added dark-field detection capabilities, defects and imperfections can easily be detected.
Bright-field observation. The most common method with optical microscopes.
Dark-field observation. Illuminate from the side to emphasize imperfections. Best method for identifying defects.
Differential Interference Contrast observation. The method to use when inspecting uneven surfaces or nanometer level imperfections.
Simple polarized light observation is a valuable technique for eliminating glare on substrates such as printed circuit boards or transparent films, allowing surface characteristics to be faithfully displayed.
Use bright-field (BF) and dark-field (DF) observation methods at the same time, a mix of BF ease of observation and DF ease of detection.
The DSX500 requires no extensive knowledge or special techniques to show you exactly what you want to see. By calling on leading-edge electronic technology, you can now see what was unclear or impossible before.
Panoramic Images Include Areas beyond the Field of View
On the DSX500 there is no such thing as "outside the field of view." Just move the observation position on the screen, and the motorized stage will move the sample to that place. As the stage moves, the system automatically stitches images into a single large field of view, in real time. Where conventional microscopes reduce field area with increases in magnification, Panoramic View maintains the original field while giving closeup clarity - with 2D, extended focus, or 3D, or any combination of the three.
3D Imaging Allows You to View Your Sample as It Actually Is
The DSX500 can easily show your sample in three dimensions, and then you can examine it from any angle.
Extended Focal Range Imaging Shows Everything
Where conventional microscopes can focus only at one level, DSX500's Extended Focal Image (EFI) capability maintains focus across the entire range, which makes uneven surfaces easier to inspect.
Customizable Report Function Makes Generating Reports Simple and Easy
With DSX500, you can perform an observation or measurement, and the system will automatically generate the relevant reports.
Color Enhancement Feature Shows Only What You Want to See
If you put what you need to see in color and leave the rest in monochrome, it's much easier to find defects, if any exist.
Inspection is easier when you can highlight possible defects or contamination for inspection
Olympus guarantees the reliability of all DSX500 microscopes because they are born of Olympus optical and digital technology. Glare is minimized and color reproduction is real. And to make sure of that, Olympus uses the perfect combination of CCD chip and graphic boards. The sample is reproduced with such accuracy it's like a new dimension.
