Portable digital magnifier from Vision Engineering
14 Jan 2018
Vision Engineering launches Camβ (CamBeta) - a digital handheld magnifier for portable inspection and documentation.
The inspection device is designed for laboratory work, medical training, mechanical inspection and rapid visual, digital documentation, wherever it is needed. Camβ provides magnification up to 20x, stores up to 20,000 images and uses grids and cursors for X & Y dimensioning, allowing objects to be inspected in situ and information to be recorded and shared.
With a high resolution colour display, easy button operation and image capture and download capability, Camβ can be used for roving inspection tasks, documenting faults and inspecting large or immobile subjects. The inspection device is equipped with dual LED illumination with 4 settings; high contrast imaging and 30 frame video capture. A live-view video output via micro HDMI allows for images to be displayed on a larger screen, making it suitable for training purposes.
The Camβ works well in production environments where company policy disallows the use of mobile phones. Its lightweight and ergonomic design enables it to be easily manipulated with one hand and operated by right or left-handed users.
A convenient way of meeting critical inspection and documentation requirements, the simple design of the magnifier helps to optimise the inspection process, as it requires minimal training. When time is of the essence, the portable design of the Camβ can also help speed up the process of inspection and decision making for operators.
