Certus Light V

Certus Light V - compact version of the SPM with low price and minimized options. The main difference from the basic version Certus Light - scan by sample and more accurate approach system. The device consists of head with cantilever deflection sensor, multifunction flat scanner, approach system, simple basement . The device has buil in electronic control unit with remote control of the instrument via a tablet computer with the use of specialized software for OS Android.




Improved SPM head with tip holder, made ​​on the basis of the SIM card

Easy in use tip holder made ​​on the basis of the SIM card provides a simple, quick removal and installation of the probe holder. It fits to  any cantilevers , available in the market from third-party manufactures. SPM head made with "short base" configuration t, with a minimum distance between the supports to give maximum rigidity design. Open space above the location of the probe provides access high multiplicity optics, with working length of 10 mm.
