The P879 is a portable microscope for measuring depth/thickness and size of objects. The combination of a depth measuring vernier and calibrated eyepiece reticule makes this a versatile tool for the workshop, QC lab, or field. Operator training is minimal so the instrument can be used on-line, at-line or in the laboratory.

Built entirely of metal and with quality glass optics the microscope is robust and precision engineered to meet the rigours of continuous use in a variety of environments. A battery-powered light provides through the lens illumination of the specimen surface.

Applications are numerous and include; measurement of photographic film thickness, depth of coatings, pits and scratches, depth of blind cavities, cracks in materials, solder thickness, silk screen ink coating, machined surfaces, surface corrosion, indentations, paint thickness, etc.

Key Features

Direct Reading to 10 micron

Repeatability to 2 micron

Estimations to 5 microns or better without the use of vernier’s
