Typical applications where Apex Series industrial cameras are especially suitable

The Apex Series cameras are the ideal choice if you have imaging applications where you need very accurate color data and high spatial precision.

Imaging in ophthalmology

Eye examination looking at interior features such as the retina, optic nerve head and microcirculation in blood vessels.

Microscopy/cell imaging/pathology

Imaging of human tissue slices, cells and body fluid samples under a microscope or in tissue scanners.

Medical/pharmaceutical quality control

Color quality control of ampoules, capsules, multi-layer tablets and other medical products.

Endoscopy/surgical imaging

Imaging inside the human body and organs. Surgical imaging via microscopes or ceiling mounted cameras.

PCB and wafer inspection

Visual inspection of printed circuit boards, chips, electronic parts and wafers.

Flat panel inspection

Calibration of chrominance and luminance values to specified color spaces, as well as detection of pixel defects.

Print inspection

High-end print inspection of currency, pharmaceutical packages and other printed material.

Automotive inspection

Paint inspection and verification of color LEDs in dashboard instruments.
