Paul N. Gardner Company's
(Stamford, CT) optical design
combines the advantages of a
USB-microscope digital cam-
era to the precision optics of
a microscope illuminated with
LED lights. With the 20-200
times magnification, you can
determine the fine structure of
surfaces. This compact digital
microscope is ideal for ana-
lyzing coating failures, imperfections, pretreatment quality,
etc. The microscope can be used in direct contact to the
surface or at larger distances. The eight integrated white
light LED's are adjustable in strength guaranteeing a clear
view without causing reflections. Special software for edit-
ing and making videos comes with this USB microscope.
With this software, you can determine the length, width,
height and angle to the radius of the objects.
The RoadRunner SoftStep
motor drive from Testra
(Tempe, AZ) replaces 1- to
7-amp drives with inputs
ranging from 20VDC to
80VDC. Users are often
surprised by ultra-smooth,
quiet stepper motor
operation. The intelligent
on board processor developed by Testra treats the input
steps as small vector moves and smoothly chains them
together with 250 or 256 micro-steps per regular motor
step with controlled accelerations that eliminates jerkiness.
Measuring 2. 5 x 2. 5 x 0.825 inches, the SoftStep drives are
physically small for easy installation. Since they are energy
efficient, no heat sink is required in most cases. They can
simply be mounted to the chassis or cabinet in any convenient location.
