Ferroscope Digital Camera

Ferroscope Digital Camera – Wear Debris Analysis (Ferrography)

The high-definition digital camera for the Ferroscope FS-6 features a 5-megapixel CCD that can capture wear particles. The camera improves red sensitivity by using a new IR cut filter and enhances image quality, including increased brightness through 4x binning. It features a large built-in LCD monitor which can observe samples and capture images without a computer connection. The monitor can be split in half to display still and live images side-by-side to compare and contrast a sample image that serves as a reference with a live image. The monitor has exceptional color representation with seven default gamma correction presets and another seven that can be registered by the user. It allows the user to create an original reference table.
