Easy digital imaging

nikon metrology industrial microscopes upright LV100NDA digital imaging DS L4 NISCombining the camera control unit with the LV100DA-U, allows greater information detection and control over a variety of key functions, including the use of objective lenses, light intensity of the illumination unit, aperture stop, observation method adjustment (brightfield/darkfield/fluorescence) and magnification.

In addition, the information is automatically converted to appropriate calibration data when changing magnification.
