Dino-Lite AM4517MZT


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-level light intensity adjustments.


Adjustable Polarizer

Polarization can be switched on/off or adjusted to allow full or half polarization to control glare and helps to reveal more detail or to enhance the contrast on the surface by reducing or eliminating the reflections.

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 contamination by dust, debris, or moisture.

N3C-D / Diffuser Cap

This is a translucent cap that partially softens the LED light.

N3C-D2 / Opal Diffuser Cap

This cap softens and evenly distributes the LED light.

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

This 12.5mm cap eases the task of 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-L / Long Cap (30mm length)

This cap assists users to find focus quickly at low magnification when it touches the surface.

N3C-O / Open Cap (9.5mm length)

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

N3C-S / Sidelight Cap

Use the sidelight cap to light from the side for highlighting the texture and depth of targets at short working distances.
