Aven Cyclops Digital Scope has HDMI and USB Outputs

ANN ARBOR, MI – A versatile inspection microscope introduced by Aven, Inc. connects directly to a HD monitor as well as to a computer.

The new Aven Cyclops Digital Microscope, with HDMI and USB output modes, lets users see magnified views in two ways.

In HDMI mode, it has a magnification range of 15x to 270x on a 21.5” HD monitor. If the USB cable is used for PC viewing, magnification increases up to 534x.

“This adaptable instrument has built-in flexibility,” says Aven president Mike Shahpurwala. "Operators can see video or single frames on their monitor – bypassing a computer if they needn’t be saved or shared right away.

“Two signal output choices on one scope are a real breakthrough,” adds the Michigan company’s founder.

A 5-megapixel CMOS sensor and 30 LEDs provide crisp, clear images. Brightness and sector controls regulate the illumination.

Image capture software furnished with the Cyclops includes measurement and editing tools. Video is recorded at 30 frames per second. Cyclops is compatible with Windows 7 or 8.

Gain control is automatic, while white balance can be set manually if preferred. A white balance card and calibration scale also are provided.

A 4x objective lens is included and a 10x lens is available.

Accompanying accessories include a metal stand, power adapter and infrared remote control for use with all major features.

Aven will demonstrate the Cyclops Digital Microscope at Booth 4116 of Pittcon from March 2-6 at McCormick Place in Chicago.
