Exceeding the resolution capabilities of an optical microscope
By using a blue-filter, it is possible to perform observation that maximises the capabilities of an optical lens. Utilising short-wavelength blue light, the VHX-2000 is capable of capturing super resolution images that are impossible to view with white light. This has been made possible by KEYENCE's original pixel shift technology.
Based on the object being viewed, different wavelengths of light will bring out different features. With blue light, the short wavelength will provide detailed surface information. The long wavelength of the red filter will penetrate the surface coating and generate an image of layers below the top surface.
Equipped with the world's smallest drive mechanism, the VHX Series
achieves the best resolution by capturing up to a 54 megapixel
image through the pixel-shift method. The drive mechanism is able
to shift the CCD in sub-pixel units and record images that have two
times the resolution of conventional images.
*The 18 million pixels x 3CCD mode achieves both excellent colour reproduction and high resolution images.
The camera captures multiple colour images at different brightness levels by varying the shutter speed, and then produces an image with high level gradation data. The range of obtainable brightness widens, resulting in the accurate representation of targets with glare as well as rendering detailed images of areas with low colour gradation.
