Micro-Vu Sol

The Micro-Vu Sol is a semi-automated optical measuring machine, incorporating programmable lighting with 19.5x zoom lens. The Sol inspect software guides the operator to run repetitive measurement routines in a clear and consistent manner.

The Sol Vision System implements new technologies to provide speed and accuracy on a reliable and affordable measuring machine. The Sol bridges the gap between manual and automated measurement systems.

A programmable 19.5x zoom (6.5x optical and 3x digital), non-linear compensation (optics and stage), advance lighting, and part program compatibility make the Sol the most advanced machine in its class.

Micro-Vu’s InSpec Metrology Software drives the Sol in addition to manual, vision, and multisensor systems. InSpec’s point-and click measuring and proprietary edge detection simplify demanding measurement applications.

Programable Zoom

The zoom lens is motorised. InSpec automatically drives the lens to the programmed zoom stops. Parts can be measured faster and more accurately.

Non-Linear Compensation

InSpec measures and applies compensation for systematic variation and ensures the highest measuring accuracy for the machine. Non-linear calibration of the stage and optics is standard.

Advanced Lighting

The intuitive graphic interface controls long-life white LEDs. Enhance edges with full, ring, sector, and segment selections. InSpec includes automated light calibrations.
