    Zoom Optics Cover a Wide Range of Magnification

    Optical Zoom: Get Closer to the Sample

    The DSX510 offers optical zoom of up to 13X and digital zoom of up to 30X. A single optical lens can cover the typical magnification range of conventional light microscopes.

    A Variety of Observation Methods, Freely Usable

    Quickly and Easily Acquire the Images Required for Observation

    The DSX510 offers a variety of observation modes that deliver the highresolution images users expect from high-end optics.


    Choose the Observation Method with One Easy Click


    A click of a button delivers the required image on screen

    With virtually every industrial observation method just a click away, the DSX510 makes it easy to choose the right one for the task at hand. No complicated adjustments needed — simply choose between modes (brightfield, darkfield, MIX [BF + DF], Differential Interference Contrast, polarized light) and start creating high-end images that meet precise demands.


    Advanced image processing

    HDR: High-Definition Visuals Beyond the Human Eye

    Sample appearance can vary depending on quality of material, surface conditions, or illumination methods. One of a variety of observation methods made possible by the advanced digital technology of DSX510, the HDR (High Dynamic Range) function, combines several images taken at different exposures to accurately correct brightness differences on the sample surface, delivering a more consistently accurate sample rendition.

    Anyone Can Make Observations in Optimum Conditions

    Best Image Function Ensures Optimal Performance from Any Operator


    The DSX510 will set all the necessary parameters to achieve that image. The Best image function ensures optimal images, whether looking for defects, uneven surfaces, or foreign objects. With Best image, anyone can operate the system — beginner to expert — and it can be customized for each operator.

    EFI: View Uneven Samples in Focus Across the Entire Image



    With its EFI (Extended Focal Image) capability, the DSX510 can obtain a clear, in-focus image of an entire sample with one click — no matter how uneven the surface. During EFI, several images are taken while the point of focus is moved up and down. From these images, the areas where the sample was in focus are combined into one image where the whole sample is in focus, allowing precise inspection of uneven surfaces. Olympus’s EFI capturing speed is now faster than ever.


    3D Image: One Click Shows the Sample in 3D



    3D images



    Cutaway view

    With one click, the DSX510 can capture image samples in three dimensions, allowing examination from any angle and a view of the sample as it actually is. With detailed 3D images, sample features or unevenness can be viewed and measured. Height differences and volume can also be measured, making it easier to accurately analyze the sample.


    Live Panorama Capturing Covers Large Areas Fast

    There is no longer such a problem as “outside the field of view.” With Live panorama, simply move the observation position on the screen, and the motorized stage will move the sample to that position. As the stage moves, the system automatically stitches images into a large single field of view, in real time.


    Auto Panorama: One Click Captures a Large Field of View

    Simply put the sample on the stage, and start the process with one click. The stage moves in a spiral and the feature captures the required area automatically.


    Manual Panorama: Prioritize a Required Area


    Automatic Stitching Gives High Quality, High Value-Added Image

    High Quality Panorama

    Set the number of images, the length, and the starting point, then start the image stitching process. This executes pattern matching and corrects shading, resulting in a high-quality and high value-added image.

    EFI and 3D Image Capturing

    High quality panorama capability can be coordinated with EFI and 3D image capturing as well. The ability to capture images across a wide area, show uneven surfaces in full focus, and produce 3D images means the data exceeds that of ordinary digital microscopes.


    Improved Algorithms for Pattern Matching and Shading Correction


    Large Amounts of Data Automatically Captured

    Programmed Recipes: Automatically Capture Independent Points

    Through a convenient programmed recipe function, the DSX510 can automatically capture images of several registered points with autofocus.
