New metrology system offers smartphone/tablet convenience

With the U.S. release of its new opto-digital micro-imaging and metrology system, OLYMPUS is advancing the technological proficiency of today's inspection, test, and quality control facilities. The DSX Series imaging system delivers a completely new type of technology that combines Olympus performance reliability with the touchscreen ease of a smartphone or tablet computer.

"The DSX Series captures clear images, acquires reliable measurements, and performs high-level analysis for reproducible results—all with a tap of a touchscreen," stated Matt Smith, Olympus director of sales and marketing. "This revolutionary series of instruments is so easy to use that virtually anyone can achieve consistent, reliable results. And because the DSX family of instruments offers superior quality and reliability, you get usable, accurate data and crisp, quality images every time."

DSX Series instruments include the DSX500, DSX500i, and DSX100. Designed for simplicity, accuracy, and reliability, all instruments in this line are designed to provide two core benefits —enhanced productivity and increased efficiency.

The DSX Series “requires virtually no training,” according to the developer, and produces reliable, reproducible, and traceable measurements. It will capture perfect images “the first time and every time” with its ‘best-image’ function, and accommodates samples of all shapes and sizes to produce 2D, 3D, and panorama results. Also, it improves image clarity live or with captured images using advanced imaging techniques, including High Dynamic Range, WiDER, and Color Enhancement.

As part of the Olympus micro-imaging and metrology family of products, DSX Series instruments are compatible with powerful Stream image-processing software for measurement, analysis, and reporting. DSX systems are built to resist ambient vibration with proprietary image stabilization technology, making repeatable measurements and images possible in any environment with just the touch of a finger.
