DSX100 New!


Operating Simplicity that Guides Operators to Optimum Output, Regardless of Their Experience

A new way to see. No peering through microscope eyepieces, because everything shows on the GUI screen. So you operate the scope with touch panel, mouse, or computer. What’s more, virtually anybody can use this new operating system, whatever their experience. The screens guide the operator through the procedure, from inspection to measurement and analysis to final report. Short, simple steps. Quick results.


Three Modes to Set According to Operator Experience and Job Demands

Select Tutorial Mode or Advanced Mode to match the experience of the operator and the job at hand. And Advanced Mode can be customized to match operator experience or to do routine work. The operator’s ID and password open the application, and it automatically sets the scope to the operator’s preferred observation, analysis, or measurement settings along with the screen visual the operator normally uses.

image056 Tutorial ModeEliminates the confusing aspects of operating a microscope. Just follow the suggestions the system gives for excellent output every time.
image057 Advanced ModeMakes jobs super easy for the experienced operator. Laid out for action. Powered controls make operation much speedier.
image058 Operator ModeThis mode is customizable for speedy routine work. Most efficient when the same task is done repeatedly.

New User Interface Changes Thinking about Microscope Operation


Where an operator had to make complicated adjustments before, with DSX100, it’s simple. Once the sample is in place, everything is controlled by computer mouse, or touch screen ? focus, zoom, illumination, and choice of several inspection and operation methods. And auto-focus/auto-gain function automatically adjusts the illumination and focus on the sample.

Optical Zoom Gives Close-up and Wide-angle as Needed

Zoom lens changes magnification
Change magnification as needed, even by slight degrees, with the view in focus as the change is being made. A single lens gives you optics of 16x and digital zoom for a maximum of 30x.

The Free Angle Function Gives Angled Views without Touching the Sample

The DSX100 zoom head – Swings smoothly and stably from side to side for angled observation
Conventional microscopes require the sample position to be changed if it is to be observed from an angle, which means it must be recalibrated, and perhaps the microscope must be refocused. With the DSX100, merely tilt the head to change the viewing angle. And, it’s designed with ample frame strength and a low center of gravity, so moving the zoom head does not knock the microscope itself out of alignment.

Quickly Guided to the Best Possible Output

With DSX Series scopes, simply choosing from the menu shown on the GUI screen causes the necessary function to operate. And you can change observation methods or image processing with a single touch. Depending on the observation method used with the DSX100, you can choose the visual you need from the previews shown on the touch screen. A few simple steps let you perform the best possible observation very quickly.

Best Image Function Ensures Optimum Microscope Performance

Now you can operate your microscope just by choosing, and leave the inspection method up to the microscope. That ensures the best possible image, whether looking for defects, uneven surfaces, or foreign objects. Anyone can operate the system, beginner or expert.

Best image – Just choose the image you want from the previews on the screen

HDR Gives Ultra High-definition Visuals that Go beyond The Human Eye

Defects in the sample are easy to see in still visuals that capture the sample in ultra-high resolution that show the surface of the sample exactly as it is.

HDR – enables ultra high-definition inspection in dark-field and DIC images with one click

WiDER Provides Easy Inspection of Samples with High Luminance Difference

If the shadowed areas black out, merely upping the illumination power is often not enough, because then halation occurs. Olympus intelligent image processing technology eliminates these problems with WiDER, a proprietary system ready to go at the click of a button. It takes care of the high contrast problems without reducing the frame rate. No blackouts. No halation.

When high contrast problems occur, a click lets you see everything in real time

Four-Segment LED Ring Light Makes Scratches and Defects Easy to See

Long-life energy-saving low-running-cost LEDs are the source of illumination. And because the color temperature does not change with illumination intensity, there’s no need to adjust white balance with every change in brightness. The ring light is divided into quadrants that allow many directions of illumination, making scratches and defects easier to find.


A Simple Operation Lets You See Now What You Couldn’t See Before


The DSX100 requires no extensive knowledge or special techniques to show you exactly what you want to see. By calling on leading-edge electronic technology, you can now see what was unclear or impossible before. Of course, there are no difficult processes either. Just press the buttons on the menu, and these simple operations let you get exactly the image that meets your objectives.

Panoramic Photos Include Areas beyond the Field of Vision

No such thing as “outside the field of vision.” As the stage is moved, images automatically stitch into a single larger field of view. Where conventional microscopes reduce field area with increases in magnification, Panoramic View maintains the original field while giving close-up clarity – with 2D, expanded focus, or 3D, or any combination of one or all.

Live Panorama – A large field can be easily stitched by moving the sample stage

3D Photo Feature Shows the Sample as It Actually Is

Where conventional microscopes can focus only at one place, DSX100 Extend Focal Image (EFI) maintains focus across the entire target surface area. This makes uneven surfaces easy to inspect. 3D imaging shows the sample in relief, and the sample can be viewed or photographed from virtually any angle.

Color Enhancement Feature Shows Only What You Want to See

If you put what you need to see in color and leave the rest inmonotone, it’s much easier to find defects, if any exist. And you can photograph just that part, too, which makes reports even more effective.

Inspection is easier when you can highlight possible defects or contamination for inspection

The Report Function Gathers the Results Together Efficiently

With DSX100, you can do observation or measurement, and the operator’s workflow includes preparation of relevant reports that can be output in rich text (rtf), or PDF formats.


DNA from Olympus Gives DSX Microscopes the Ability to See What Digital Microscopes Cannot

Olympus guarantees the reliability of all DSX100 microscopes because they are born of Olympus optics and opto-digital technology. Halation is minimal and color reproduction is real. And to make sure of that, Olympus uses the perfect combination of CCD chips and graphic boards. The sample is reproduced with such accuracy it’s like a new dimension.

Ultra High-Quality Optics Let You See into Another Dimension

Auto-Calibration Eliminates Result Scatter

image073 Proper calibration is basic to precise measurement, and with Olympus DSX100, any operator can calibrate simply and accurately. This eliminates scattering that naturally comes when different operators calibrate, and naturally increases reliability of readouts. In addition, the system’s calibration report shows who did the calibration and when.
*A special calibration sample is necessary

Long List of Measurement Items Include Both 2D and 3D Choices

image074 Any DSX100 microscope comes equipped for both 2D and 3D images. That means you can measure along the X,Y axis, or along X, Y, and Z axes. Observe, inspect, or mea- sure from any angle. And the result of inspection can be reported by the same application.
