Large motorized stage for Keyence VHX digital microscope

Extended scan area of up to 300mm

Now even large specimens can be scanned with the Keyence VHX microscope.

Our motorized desktop stand extends the travel range of the VHX digital microscope up to 300mm. The easy to use control software ScanX allows more automated scanning and larger stitching as well as import of position lists / map files. Optionally transmitted light available.
Thereby we combine the high functionality of the VHX with our sophisticated positioning and control unit to an optimally matched overall system.

Technical data for standard system:

XY travel range: 300 x 300mm

Aperture for transmitted light: 250 x 250mm

Z-travel range: 45mm* motorized incl. autofocus

* An additional manual Z adjustment is optionally available.

ScanX – Software for automated scanning and large image stitching

Extension for Keyence VHX digital microscope

Program unlimited positions with just a few clicks, scan & stitch automatically. Stitching of very large areas and generate gigapixel images.

Our ScanX software in compination with a VHX microscope with motorized stage opens new dimensions in the field of automated scanning and image stitching.

The easy-to-use IDC control software takes over the entire process. Import position lists or map files, define the scan parameters and start the scan process.

Classifier – Viewer and classifier for images

Scroll through, tag and rate captured images quickly and efficiently

Whether it’s a handful or thousands of captured images, the IDC Classifier software lets you browse and rate them with ease….

…. – independent of the microscope, also on another PC or while the next scan is already running. Finally, you can export the results to an Excel VI-Map.

Customer-specific export filters are possible.
