• Temperature accuracy : ±1°C *4

Shoot Close-up 58um Images with Standard Lens

Very small objects can be measured and recorded with the combination of the R500's 10cm minimum focal distance standard lens and Avio's built-in "Multi-Frame Super Resolution Processing" function without the need of an optional lens.

• Minimum Spatial Resolution : equivalent to 58μm *2 <in Super Resolution(SR) Mode>

A Wide Viewing Angle Lens increases Working Efficiency

The standard wide viewing angle lens captures large area images when working in limited space and improves overall shooting efficiency.

Field of view (F.O.V.) : 32°(H) x 24°(V)

*1 : in Super Resolution (SR) Mode
*2 : This increased resolution results from detecting characteristic points within all frames and aligning them to compensate for small vibrations such as those introduced by hand movement.
*3 : with S/N improvement
*4 : at environmental temperature 20 to 30°C in range 1
