Polarizer Adds Inspection Clarity To New Aven LED Ring Light
Press release date: August 19, 2014
ANN ARBOR, MI – The newest microscope ring light from Aven, Inc. includes a contrast-enhancing polarizer that allows crisper, clearer inspection of shiny circuit boards or highly reflective parts.
Rotating the polarizer ring slowly reduces or virtually eliminates reflective glare and hot spots.
“This greatly improves microscopic imaging of metal, glass, ceramic and polished or coated materials,” says company president Mike Shahpurwala. “Surface details, indented areas or embossing become much more visible.”
The fixture, easily mounted with three thumb screws, has 60 white LEDs with an ultra-cool color temperature of 8,000 Kelvin and a minimum working life of 20,000 hours. Its working distance is 100 millimeters (four inches).
It’s accompanied by a 10-step light controller and ring light adapter.
Applications include electronics inspection, materials analysis and scientific microscopy. Polarized light also is ideal for examining minerals, polymers and biological specimens.
Aven also offers seven other LED ring light models and two fiber-optic ring lights.
