Dual-view imaging system


Navitar, Inc. introduces a versatile dual-view imaging system, which allows customers to simultaneously view a single subject and capture an image at multiple fields of view (FOV).

For situations requiring multiple FOV's, Navitar's dual-view module offers, with just one setup, a single objective lens presented to two separate imaging channels. The channels can be fixed, zoom, or a combination of both. Two separate light sources and wavelengths can be used, allowing inspection of multiple types of materials. The use of different adapter tubes on each optical path provides a wider FOV than a traditional single-view system, without the hassles of changing workstations or lighting setups.

The dual-view system has a minimum potential optical magnification range of 0.09x to 6.13x, which corresponds to FOVs as large as 120mm diagonal on a 2/3" format sensor down to a 0.65mm diagonal on a 1/4" sensor. Maximum optical magnification using the dual-view system can range from 20x to 583x using a 50x objective.

Navitar's dual-view system consists of:

  • Combination of Fixed 1x Tube lens, Precise Eye, Zoom 6000, or 12x Zoom
  • Dual-View fold block
  • LED and adjustable LED light sources
  • Adapter tubes
