The series 2100 modular computerized test system includes a high-resolution video camera and a choice of three operating modules. Users can configure a system for PC-based manual testing, add a WindowsR X-Y auto-traversing stage system for semi-automatic operation, or perform fully automatic image analysis measurements under complete software control. Providing microscopic images on a computer monitor, the system eliminates operator fatigue caused by microscope viewing. Users can manipulate the specimen manually with a joystick or by on-screen commands, and 756 x 576 pixel resolution assures the ability to detect and measure indents as specified by ASTM E-384.
