Zeiss’ first automated digital microscope makes operation easy. The device is the first integrated complete system from the company that is comprised of an optical engine (which itself consists of a zoom, camera and illumination), a stand with sample stage, objective lenses, the operating unit and software.
ZEISS Smartzoom 5 is equally suited for conducting failure analyses, for example, the close examination of a defective part, as well as to routine inspections, during which the same material sample needs to be repeatedly inspected using the same workflow. Once the quality inspector has placed the sample under the microscope, they no longer have to switch back and forth between the device and the software, but instead can carry out all the necessary steps right on the screen. They can also save this workflow so that it is always available at a later time.
The Best Image feature allows users without any prior knowledge to achieve optimal results—the system shows a preview of different illumination options, and the user only needs to select the best one. In addition, the device is calibrated at the factory and can be used immediately without requiring any further adjustment.
