Operation modes of microscope cameras

  • USB mode - This was the usual operation mode of microscope cameras. The cameras are connected to the PC via the USB interface, but require the initial installation and an ongoing updating of the application software.

  • HDMI mode - Microscope cameras that support this mode deliver their signal directly to the HDMI input of an HDMI-capable monitor (see image below) - HDMI microscope cameras can therefore also work without a PC. In addition to the high picture quality in HDMI mode, there is no need to install and update user software and drivers - as this is the case with USB-mode cameras. The camera is controlled in a menu that is displayed on the screen by the camera. User interaction is done with a mouse attached to the camera. The documentation of images/videos is done on a removable SD card or USB stick. Almost all of the HDMI cameras we offer also have a USB output - this means that alternative USB operation is also possible.

  • Network mode - For special applications where the user must be located far away from the microscope or the live image has to be made available in real time, e.g. to another department on another floor, there are microscope cameras that support communication over the network. The camera is connected to the company's local area network (LAN) via a built-in LAN adapter - a user with a PC in the same LAN can view the live image in the application installed on his PC.

How to connect a c-mount camera to your microscope

A c-mount camera can be connected using one of the three methods shown below. If you own a trinocular microscope and also the c-mount adapter of its manufacturer (left), the c-mount thread of the camera (1) on the c-mount adapter (2) is connected. If you own a trinocular microscope with a third ocular tube (center) you will need an adapter which has at the one end a tube (5) with the diameter of your ocular (e.g. 23 mm) and at the other end, a c-mount thread (2). If you have a binocular microscope (right) then you need to remove one eyepiece (7) and insert there the camera-adapter combination.
