Nikon Metrology introduces ShuttlePix, a digital microscope with the ease-of-use and portability of a digital camera

Nikon Metrology recently introduced the new ShuttlePix P-400R digital microscope, made for observation, inspection, basic measurement and recording of high-resolution images. For on-site analysis of samples, it serves as a handheld microscope that shoots high resolution images as easy and quick as taking pictures with a digital camera. For laboratory or table-top analyses, the ShuttlePix microscope interfaces seamlessly with a motorized stand.

Grab it and go!

The versatility of the battery-powered ShuttlePix system means the user can bring the microscope to on-site objects, such as an aircraft airframe, turbine casting or pipe work that often cannot be reached with a standard microscope. This unique ShuttlePix technology supports a wide range of inspection tasks in automotive, electronics, aerospace and other industries. The combination of superb imaging capabilities and digital camera style operation makes this an easy-to-use, versatile and extremely useful piece of equipment.

Using ShuttlePix as a desktop microscope

For tabletop usage, ShuttlePix interfaces with a hand-controlled motorized Z-axis stand. The operation of the stand is simple, allowing Extended Depth of Focus (EDF) image capture with the touch of a button. With the 17-inch touch screen monitor, the user can easily control the microscope, analyze, measure or print images. The microscope also connects to a standard PC or laptop that runs image analysis and 3D image reconstruction software.

Innovative optics for  superb images

The ShuttlePix blends Nikon’s technological excellence in the domains of microscopes, photo cameras and digital image processing. 
ShuttlePix offers a unique 20x optical zoom with a magnification range of 20x–400x on a 17-inch monitor, which doubles the capability of today’s common models. To acquire crystal-clear images in any indoors or outdoors light circumstances, the zoom head is equipped with a built-in 4 section LED ring illumination.

The ShuttlePix will be exhibited in European premiere on December 1 - 4 at Euromold 2010 (Frankfurt, Germany).
