Product Description

Explore the Microscopic World Around You

Great for kids, hobbyists, and professionals, the Plugable USB2-MICRO-250X Digital Microscope allows you to work quickly and effectively at the microscopic level. Common uses include classroom exploration, stamp or coin analysis, micro-soldering, garden parasite identification, and much more.

The companion software available on our website for Windows and OS X allows you to control aspects of the camera functionality directly from your computer. Capture resolution and exposure can be changed with a few clicks, and video or time-lapse modes allow for continuous observation of a subject.

Built-In Lighting

The Microscope includes built-in LEDs that can be dialed through a range of brightness levels to properly illuminate your subject. Unlike many other USB microscopes, these LEDs shine through a diffuser to combat glare.

This is especially useful when viewing reflective objects like coins. Instead of harsh glare, the diffuser gives even light distribution across the object being viewed.

Capacitive Capture Button

We used a capacitive touch button to initiate image capture rather than a physical push button. When viewing small objects at microscopic levels, the slightest bump can offset an image to an unviewable state. With a capacitive button, the lightest touch snaps a blur-free image.

Image capture can also be initiated from within the downloadable companion software, along with video or configurable time-lapse capture.

Compatibility

Windows

Support is built in to all versions of windows from XP and above. This includes Windows 10, 8.1/8, 7, Vista, and XP.

Companion software is available on our website for Windows that allows finer control of the device, or any other video capture software can be used.

OSX

Mac OSX versions 10.4.2 and above have built-in support for USB Video Class devices.

Companion software is available on our website for OSX that allows finer control of the device, or you can use any video capture software, including Photo Booth.

Linux

Built-in support for kernels 2.6.26 and above, works on Raspberry Pi with Raspbian Jessie. We recommend using GTK+ UVC Viewer.

Chrome

Works on all Chrome OS devices with the built in Camera application.

Android

Many newer Android devices support the microscope using an OTG cable and a viewing application. Select devices many not, and it's up to the device manufacturer to support external cameras.
