Unitron's TCS Pro 500: A "Resolutionary" Table PC

Resolutionary. That's how Unitron, a leading manufacturer of microscopes and microscopy products, refers to their newest innovation: The TCS Pro 500.

The TCS Pro 500 (formerly known as the iMAGE PAD 500) was created to answer the needs of a number of applications (including Production/Assembly, Defect Analysis/Quality Control, Metallurgy, Pathology, Cytology, and Microbiology) by combining a powerful tablet PC with a 5-megapixel HD camera and feature-packed image analysis software. Users can easily view live 720P video images capture them, and share them with co-workers via the 10", Android 2.3 OS-powered tablet.

Unitron says there is no other microscopy tool available like the TCS Pro 500 today. Let's take a closer look at the features of this ground-breaking system and how it will fit in with your requirements:

Regardless of what industry tasks you are working with, the TCS Pro 500's 9.7" HD LED backlit touch screen, 8GB of memory, and 10-hour battery life are must-have features. Add in the stability of the Android 2.3 OS, the 1.2GHz ARM Cortex® A8 Core Processor, and a variety of built-in interfaces and you've got a solid tool that provides speed, efficiency, and the invaluable ability to share data easily with colleagues.

One of the two unique components (the imaging software being the other) that make the TCS Pro 500 such a useful device is the built-in, 5-megapixel HD camera. Partnering this tablet and with this camera allows the TCS Pro to go beyond other HD cameras available on the market, which usually require a separate monitor and rarely provide an option to capture images to a flash drive, SD card, or via Wi-Fi to a network.

  • Controls: Programmable gain, frame rate, frame size, exposure
  • Shutter type: Global Reset Release (GRR)
  • Color filter array: RGB Bayer Pattern
  • Dynamic range: 71dB
  • SNRMAX: 40.5dB
The ability for the user to view real-time, live HD video and then capture, record, and share that content is accomplished through the impressive VMS3.6 Image Analysis Software. The captured images can then be annotated, manipulated, and analyzed before saving or being easily exported.

Software Specifications
  • Real-time, live HD video display in 720p resolution
  • Images can be captured or video can be recorded
  • Captured images can be measured, annotated
  • Cell counts can be performed
  • Shapes can be drawn to circle or highlight regions of interest
  • Measurement results can be exported into Word, Excel or PDF files quickly and easily
  • Calibrations can be stored and recalled easily for repeatability
  • Camera settings can be easily adjusted for exposure, gain and white balance
  • Zoom in or out of captured images
  • Images and video files can be easily exported via SD card, USB flash drive or via wireless network
Boasting ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 Certification standards for design and production, the Unitron TCS Pro 500 is built for daily use in the industrial assembly/production and clinical/biological fields. Each of the tablet's specification has been chosen to help you get your job done correctly and efficiently. For example, the Android 2.3 operating system was chosen specifically as the most stable platform for the VMS3.6 imaging software and the multiple storage and Wi-Fi options were implemented to make it easier to share data with co-workers.
