Electronics & PCB Microscopes and Supplies
Circuit board components are getting smaller and more complex by the day. Your old magnifying glass or magnification lamp doesn't cut it anymore. The clear optics and bright illumination you get from a purpose-built electronics & PCB microscope allow you to perform more work, faster. Just make sure you choose the right...
If you've worked with halogen your whole life, it might be hard to change now. But LED gives a clearer look at your subject, especially at high magnification.
Capture images of your work and make detailed records so it's always clear you did your job right the first time.
The greater your working distance the better. Some models offer 6 inches, which is excellent for the tools you use during soldering and inspection.

You can't do any serious electronics work without an electronics or PCB microscope.
Surface mount components are getting smaller and smaller, and there is only so much you can see with the naked eye or a magnification glass. Nowadays, a stereo microscope - which is the category most microscopes used for electronics repair or the inspection of electronic components fall under - or USB microscope is essential when it comes to the inspection of solder work, PCB traces, and SMT components.
Bad solder joints are easy to see under high magnification
A PCB inspection microscope gives you a clearer, brighter look at the printed circuit board or other electronics subject during your visual inspection and soldering work.
Low to moderate zoom capabilities allow you to work on a small electronic circuit or breeze through industrial inspection comfortably - improving your productivity and the income your business can generate.
What are the most valuable features for your PCB microscope?
A digital microscope is commonly used in electronics and PCB inspection because it makes documenting your workflow fast and easy.
A digital microscope has a camera that can record every part of your inspection or soldering.
It can be a modified stereo microscope, where a camera is attached to an eye piece (usually the trinocular port on the microscope head) and the field of view is captured by the camera and saved on an SD card or directly to your computer's hard drive, depending on the model).
A USB microscope like any model of Dino-Lite Edge takes up very little space and produces an image just as clear as any other tool.
Working distance is an important feature for your PCB microscope. When you work with a soldering iron, squeezing it into a small working area between the microscope and circuit board
More than six inches of working distance is very good. You can easily spot and repair solder bridges or solder whiskers on older boards. A few units, like the OM-B10-L, give you up to nine inches of working distance.
A ring light around your microscope lens keeps your workspace clean as well, and gives you the adjustable illumination you need to work at different magnification levels.
Depending on the type of PCB work you do, a Dino-Lite digital microscope with a stand and a few accessories could be the best value available. The speed you gain in repairs, and the additional services you can offer will pay for the unit quickly. And you'll be earning profits for years after.
There's lots to know, and it might be better to talk to a member of our team. After all, you might really benefit from an additional eyepiece with 20X magnification instead of the standard 10X magnification. Or you might need a specialized lighting setup.
