VHX-5000 – New Digital Microscope Eliminates Need for Focus Adjustment

The latest microscope from KEYENCE revolutionises how imaging and analysis are performed. By integrating the most recent advancements in optical and digital technologies, the VHX-5000 Digital Microscope is able to instantly capture any area in complete focus – without the need for the user to adjust focus. The VHX Series was designed to overcome the limitations of traditional optical microscopes by providing high-resolution, large depth-of-field imaging and integrated 2D/3D measurement in a system that anyone can easily pick up and operate without any specialised training.


Advantage set under Wimbledon roof

Datapaq measures floodlight temperatures Cambridge, UK – When the sun comes out on a rainy Wimbledon match day, the roof over Centre Court can be retracted, but only after the floodlights have cooled down sufficiently. This is a safety requirement as well as an aesthetic one, as the 1,000 W floodlights are mounted directly on the roof beams and the fabric comes close to this heat source when the roof is retracted.
