Key Features

Tablet-type camera control unit

The large, 10.1 inch, 1920 × 1200 pixel display allows easy confirmation of live images and captured images. With its touch panel display, smooth setting and control of the DS-Ri2/DS-Fi3 is possible. Bluetooth accessories such as a keyboard and mouse can also be connected.

Scene mode

Optimal imaging parameters for the microscope’s light source (LED or halogen), each sample type, and each observation method, can easily be set through icons. Three modes for biological and four modes for industrial imaging are available. Up to seven custom modes with freely configurable shooting parameters can also be set.


Integration with a microscope

By connecting to a biological, industrial, or stereo microscope equipped with motorized units (and intelligent units with status sensors), the DS-L4 enables control and status readouts of the microscope. Storing the information about mounted objectives is convenient for easy measurement.


Wide variety of tools/annotation functions

The DS-L4 allows easy measurement of an image when information about objectives and the zoom ratio is stored in the DS-L4. It also enables input/saving of annotations to an image, and the output of measurement data.

Tightened security

McAfee White List method embedded control is preinstalled for virus management. A program that is not registered in White List cannot be launched, preventing viruses from being activated. By implementing user registration, usage is restricted to registered users only. This tightened security protects important images.
