Navitar Inc. has introduced a versatile dual view imaging system, allowing users to simultaneously view a single subject and capture an image at multiple fields of view (FOV).
For situations requiring multiple FOV, the dual view module offers 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 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, according to the company.
The system has a minimum potential optical magnification range of 0.09X to 6.13X, which corresponds to FOVs as large as 120 mm diagonal on a 2/3 in format sensor down to a 0.65 diagonal on a 1/4 in sensor. Maximum optical magnification using the system can range from 20X to 583X using a 50X objective.
