The Dino-Lite EdgePLUS AM4517MT8A is a cutting-edge digital microscope that combines high sensitivity with built-in coaxial light to produce high-contrast images of highly reflective surfaces. The advanced features of AMR, and eFLC combined with switchable coaxial-brightfield and darkfield illumination, make it an ideal tool for examining edges, pores, dents, scratches, and other topographical features with exceptional detail. The EdgePLUS AM4517MT8A offers the precision you need to get the most out of your observations.

Reveal the Finest Details of Topographical Features

Unlock the full potential of your microscope observations with EdgePLUS  AM4517MT8A. With a powerful coaxial light, you can easily capture sharp and highly detailed images of even the most reflective surfaces. The ability to switch between coaxial-brightfield and darkfield illumination allows you to get a complete view of your sample topographical features.

Dino-Lite AM4517MT8A



With built-in brightfield and darkfield illumination, users have more flexibility to view targets under different types of lighting configurations.

1.3 Megapixels

The advanced CMOS image sensor can transmit crisp images at 30 FPS with resolutions up to 1280×960.

Automatic Magnification Reading (AMR)

Automatic Magnification Reading displays the current magnification on the screen with the included software for Windows or Mac OS. AMR features remove the hassle of stopping your work to check the magnification before performing a measurement.


Enhanced Flexible LED Control (eFLC)

Improved FLC capabilities, eFLC can adjust the light intensity on two assigned groups of LED quadrants, each with 32-levels light intensity adjustments.


Scroll Lock

The scroll lock ensures the focus knob stays at the desired focus or magnification position without worry of unintentional movement.

Interchangeable Front Caps

The interchangeable front caps are designed to be used with Dino-Lite Edge and EdgePLUS series models. The caps provide additional versatility to Dino-Lite digital microscope applications.

N3C-C / Close Cap

This cap protects the lens and LED lights from dust, debris, or moisture.

N3C-E / Extended Open Cap (12.5mm length)

This 12.5mm cap eases finding and holding a fixed focus when using the Dino-Lite in handheld mode. This cap is compatible with standard and wide-field-of-view models.

N3C-O / Open Cap (9.5mm length)

This 9.5mm cap eases finding and holding a fixed focus when using the Dino-Lite in handheld mode.
