The Keyence microscope is a semi computer controlled microscope that is capable of taking precision measurements from large depth of field images under high magnification. This microscope features both backlighting and top lighting, and has a computer controlled movable stage which can be used to pan across the object you are viewing. This microscope has a motorized objective which can be used to image parts with a large depth of field to create a single in focus image with depth mapping data. The motorized stage also allows for the stitching of several images to create larger high magnification pictures.
