Does the system of acquisition SlowScan suit to all the types of electron scanning microscopes ?

Yes, the function of SlowScan card leans on the principle of the microscope. All the systems delivering an image by scanning an object can be equipped.

The system recognizes all the speeds of my equipment ?

The last evolutions of SlowScan allow it to bring the comfort of maximum observation to all the scanning speeds. Indeed, the real time restoration of the image is made either by wefts for the fast speeds, or by lines for slower speeds. Normally, the system can run on TV mode in modes where the duration of which lines is of several seconds.

The equipment of the microscope risks to modify its performances ?

Yes, indeed on, it will be easier to get back quality images. The system of acquisition of images offers all the guarantees because it modifies not at all the electronics of the device. The latter thus keeps all its characteristics of origin. The advantage of this approach is to preserve the current use of the device.

The camera installed on my optical miscroscope restores a field smaller than that observed in oculars. Is it normal ?

Generally, manufacturer of optical equipment planned exits to install cameras with one inch sensor. The technology of these sensors evolved very quickly because today are even proposed cameras with sensors of 1/4 inch. The experience of our company in this domain allows us to bring the answer for which you wait by taking into account your needs and the nature of the existing. These parameters are going to guide the choice of the camera and if need, of the optical adapter to be installed.

What do we call magnification ratio ?

The magnification is the ratio of the image restored to the size of origin of the object. To be in phase with professional, we consider the photo size and not the screen as the support of restoration. In the case of the optical microscopy, the reference, in the ratio 1,33, is thus of 120mm x 90 mm. In electronic microscopy, the magnification refers to the size of the photo of 114mm x 90 mm ratio 1,25
