Digital magnifier for portable inspection unveiled

Vision Engineering has launched Camβ (CamBeta) - a new digital handheld magnifier for portable inspection and documentation. The new inspection device is designed for electronics, mechanical inspection, automotive manufacture, watchmaking, plastics engineering, medical inspection and wherever rapid visual, digital documentation is needed.

Camβ provides magnification up to 20x, stores up to 20,000 images and uses grids and cursors for X & Y dimensioning, allowing objects to be inspected in situ and information to be recorded and shared. With a high resolution colour display, easy button operation and image capture and download capability, it is ideal for roving inspection tasks, documenting faults and inspecting large or immobile subjects. The device is equipped with dual LED illumination with 4 settings; high contrast imaging and 30 frame video capture. A live-view video output via micro HDMI allows for images to be displayed on a larger screen, making Camβ suitable for training purposes.

The Camβ is well suited in production environments where company policy disallows the use of mobile phones. Its lightweight and ergonomic design is superior to a smartphone and allows the Camβ to be easily manipulated with one hand and operated by right or left-handed users.

Camβ offers a convenient way of meeting critical inspection and documentation requirements. The simple design helps to optimise the inspection process, as it requires minimal training. When time is of the essence, the portable design of the Camβ also helps to speed up the process of inspection and decision making for operators.
