- View more detail in shadows and highlights with Wide Dynamic Range (WDR). Ideal for high contrast subjects, such as reflective metals.
- Fast high speed frame rate (60fps) camera ensure video images are super smooth without juddering.
Integral 8-point LED ring light ensures optimum shadow-free illumination for all applications. Color temperature 5500K.
Transmitted substage illumination permits viewing of a wider range of sample types.
Images can easily be captured and saved from the EVO Cam II directly to a USB dongle at the touch of a button.
Alternatively they can be transferred securely to a computer via cable output (HDMI or USB 3.0) or wireless using a Wi-Fi dongle. Using a Wi-Fi dongle removes the need for extra cabling and allows the user to quickly view and download images and videos, making it ideal when access for multiple users is required.
Revealing more detail with 360° rotating viewer
This unique feature offers a full 360° rotating view without the need to move the subject under magnification, making inspection easier and quicker.
The 34° angle allows detail to be seen at the base of any vertical component or feature. Operators can simply switch between rotating oblique view and a direct view for ultimate flexibility.
Simple on-screen measurement
EVO Cam II includes easy on-screen measurement capability, with selectable overlays, grid and cursors.
Cursor mode displays two movable horizontal and vertical lines, allowing measurement of X and Y values with results displayed on screen. Also point to point diagonal measurement allows measurement of non-aligned items.
Customizable overlays are easily created and imported into the camera allowing easy comparison against drawings, samples or reticles.
Grids can be displayed, scaled and positioned as required.
The modular design of EVO Cam allows tailoring for many individual application requirements.

UV ring light
|The UV ring light is an excellent optional accessory for EVO Cam II. It is suitable for many applications ranging from electronics, aerospace and forensics.|
What is the file format of the captured image?
EVO Cam II captures images in PNG (Portable Network Graphics) format, being a very widely compatible format. PNG images do not lose information caused by compression, maintaining maximum detail in the saved image. EVO Cam II saves images with an automatic sequence number.
Do I need a PC/software to capture images?
No. EVO Cam II captures images direct to a USB memory stick on the side of the unit, so there is no need for a PC/software. However you can still connect to a PC with a USB 3.0 cable to the port at the back of the unit or by using the Wi-Fi dongle.
Can I capture images to an external hard drive?
Yes. Just plug in an external drive to the USB 3.0 port instead of the USB memory stick.
Is the EVO Cam II USB port for connecting to a PC?
Yes. There are three USB ports on the unit. The USB 3.0 port at the back of the unit allows connection to a PC. The USB port on the side of the unit allows images to be captured direct to a USB memory stick or for use with the Wi-Fi dongle.
Can I use EVO Cam II with just a monitor?
Yes. EVO Cam II simply connects via HDMI to any HDMI-enabled monitor.
What is the auto focus range of EVO Cam II?
The auto focus range is approximately 1cm (depending on the objective and magnification). This is to allow for some variation in sample height. If there is a large variation in sample size then the camera position will need to be adjusted.
How is magnification calculated?
Magnification is a combination of both the objective lens used and also the monitor size. EVO Cam II displays the current magnification on-screen, which can be configured for different objective lenses and monitor screen sizes. Vision Engineering’s quoted magnifications are based on a 24″ monitor.
How long does it take to set-up EVO Cam II for use?
Out of the box, EVO Cam II takes minutes to set-up. Then simply turn the camera on and you are seconds away from viewing and capturing full HD images.
Do I need training before using EVO Cam?
No. EVO Cam’s intuitive controls makes it easy to use from the start.
What is the benefit of having a 30:1 zoom ratio?
Users can perform a large number of investigations, from low to high magnification without changing the objective or losing the focus plane, thereby saving time and increasing efficiency.
Does the camera have auto focus?
Yes, but it can also be switched to manual focus if required.
What is the field of view of EVO Cam II?
The field of view is dependent on the magnification at which you are viewing and the objective lens that you are using. The widest field of view will be achieved with a lower magnification objective. Field of view reduces as magnification increases. Please refer to the optical data for full details.
What illumination options are there?
EVO Cam II includes a controllable 8-point LED ring light, providing optimum shadow-free illumination for a wide range of applications.
A transmitted substage illumination option (for use with the Ergo stand) permits viewing of a wider range of sample types, such as translucent samples.
What stands can I use with EVO Cam II?
EVO Cam II is a highly flexible solution for a very wide range of applications and environments. Vision Engineering has designed a range of stands to allow tailoring to individual requirements. We will be happy to advise which configuration is best suited for your needs.
Can I attach filters to the objective lens?
Yes. The objective lenses each have a thread to accept a range of filters (neutral density, color, UV and polarization).
Can I use EVO Cam II for simple measurement?
Yes. EVO Cam II can be used to perform simple measurements, with customisable overlay grid and cursors. Sometimes called dimensioning.
What measurement accuracy can I achieve with EVO Cam II?
Vision Engineering do not quote measurement accuracy for simple on-screen measurement, since there are a wide number of factors which determine measurement accuracy. These include focus position, user skill and calibration.
Vision Engineering has a range of precision measuring systems, if high accuracy measurement is required (up to ±2µm).
Is EVO Cam II supplied with a monitor?
EVO Cam II can be supplied with or without a monitor. It is important to remember that the monitor is a critical part of the system. A poor quality monitor will adversely affect the image quality obtained from EVO Cam II. Please contact your local Vision Engineering branch or distributor for details of our recommended monitors.
Why would I choose EVO Cam II over a stereo microscope
This really depends on your application. EVO Cam II is comfortable to use, and for the same magnification provides a much bigger field of view than a stereo microscope.
For example in electronics applications, EVO Cam II is great for quickly inspecting areas of circuit boards for broken tracts and component placement.
In comparison a stereo microscope, like Lynx EVO, provides a 3D image with superior depth perception, being better suited for tasks requiring hand-eye co-ordination, such as hand soldering and rework tasks.
