April 08, 2016 // By Julien Happich
RS Components has launched a new range of Wi-Fi microscopes designed for use by electronic and mechanical engineers for industrial inspection of electronic and mechanical assemblies and for quality control such as inspecting soldering work on PCBs.

Designed to be competitively priced, as well as being small, the range uses Wi-Fi wireless communication, enabling the microscopes to be used and operated via a PC, tablet or smartphone to capture pictures or video and make measurements. The series comprises six microscopes that come with a wide range of features, including models that have: a built-in adjustable polariser to reduce glare and reflection on shiny objects; a high magnification option , delivering 500 to 600x magnification; the option of viewing objects under white light or UV , ideal for forensics and biomedical applications; as well as a longer working distance model with a wide field of view for tasks such as repair, rework or assembly.

The range also includes a digital microscope that can be connected to a wide range of televisions via the RCA cable and the Wi-Fi receiver base. The device has 5 to 200x magnification, 656x492-pixel resolution, a 60fps maximum frame rate and wireless transmission distance up to 5m. The Li-ion battery can be charged from a laptop or PC via USB and provides a continuous working time of two hours. The package also includes two transparent covers, a 5V DC power supply and a quick start guide.
The Mic-Fi companion app enables these microscopes to transmit directly to a smartphone or tablet device and is downloadable from the App store or Google Play. It offers a range of functions including measurement and capture of images or video.
In addition to the microscopes, RS is also offering a USB to Wi-Fi streamer, which allows USB based devices such as microscopes and endoscopes to capture images or video and send them over Wi-Fi to a PC, tablet or smartphone.
