Height (Z-axis) can be measured with indicator


An ABS digital indicator is attached to a stand for USH.

– Measurement range: 25.4mm
– Minimum display: 0.001mm (switchable between 0.001/0.01mm)
– Indicator precision: 0.003mm





<Example of use: A video measuring the height from the smartphone’s LCD screen to the surface of the protective film>

Why is its price so low?

超高倍率高解像度 USBマイクロスコープ
We make this product with only necessary features and omit unnecessary ones. Autofocus and focus stacking functions are not included. Instead, more attention is paid to the lens to obtain clearer observation images. Please take a look at the high-quality images observed with Japan's top-level lenses.

The great thing is: 1. Chromatic aberration is reduced to the limit! Observing the surface of a 10-yen coin at 1000x magnification.

超高倍率高解像度 USBマイクロスコープ
Observing with SH140CCD-R2
When observing at an ultra-high magnification exceeding 1000x, color separation occurs due to the difference in wavelength.
超高倍率高解像度 USBマイクロスコープ
Observing with USH500CS-H1
Color separation does not occur even at an ultra-high magnification exceeding 1000x. Optical and chromatic aberration are reduced to the utmost limit! The image is sharper and the edges are sharper even at high magnification.

2. Sharper edges! Observing the surface of black rubber at 1000x

When observing with USH500CS-H1, both the image and the edges are clear.

Observation at ultra-high magnification

When observing at ultra-high magnification (over 1000x), the edge of the observed object is inevitably blurred due to aberration. Aberration occurs due to the performance of the lens. Aberration can be suppressed to some extent by lens choice. However, this also greatly affects the product price, so I think it is necessary to use different lenses depending on the observation object.

Shodensha offer
(1) A general-purpose ultra-high magnification lens and
(2) A high-performance ultra-high magnification lens with maximum performance.

Observing patterns of a silicon wafer at 1200x with two lenses.

超高倍率高解像度 USBマイクロスコープ
For general-purpose lenses (SH140CCD-2R)
With a general-purpose lens, an object with a 1 μm pitch has a bulging edge and looks integrated.
● Criteria for proper use
As long as a 1 μm object does not come close to you, you can check its presence or position with a general-purpose lens.
Therefore, you can use it to check foreign matter, or presence or absence of patterns, etc.

超高倍率高解像度 USBマイクロスコープ
For high-performance lenses (USH500CS-H1)
With high-performance lenses, an objects with a 1 μm pitch can also be checked individually.
● Criteria for proper use
A high-performance lens is necessary to observe surfaces with approximately 1 μm pitch and observe particles with such of the same color gathered together.
