Mantis Elite-Cam Head

Product Description

*NOTE: A functional Mantis system requires a Head, a Stand, and at least one lens. This item is the Elite-CAM HD head only.

Like the other models in the Mantis range, the Mantis Elite-Cam HD allows ergonomic, comfortable working with a clear three dimensional view. Additionally, Mantis Elite-Cam HD offers the functionality of a HD camera that connects via USB 2.0 to a PC.

This system comes complete with great software to allow you to carry out easy-to-use image archiving and annotation. Advanced software for dimensioning and simple measurement is available as an upgrade.

3D View With Enhanced Depth Perception

  • Eyepiece-less technology means users can move their heads within the optical paths enhancing depth perception greater than possible with just the stereo view.

Three-fold ergonomics

  • Ergonomics of posture: Mantis Elite-Cam HD allows freedom of head movement and does not require the user to align the eyes precisely. Benefit is that users can work more comfortably for longer, increasing user comfort and productivity.
  • Ergonomics of the eye: Benefit from prescribed eyesight correction, allowing users to wear spectacles, for increased comfort and reduced setup times between users. Benefit from ambient light reducing eye fatigue and related headaches. Benefit of a similar focal distance from direct view of the sample to the view through the system, also helps to reduce eye strain.
  • Ergonomics for manipulation: Mantis microscope systems benefit from the user retaining their peripheral vision. This enables easier hand to eye co-ordination for easier more accurate working with increased productivity.

The Mantis Elite-Cam HD comes with uEye image capture PC software as standard which enables image capture as well as video recording.

  • Quickly and simply add annotations / mark-up to captured images using the uEye software supplied
