The Zeiss Smartproof 5 wide-field confocal microscope is designed for applications in quality assurance and quality control, production, and R&D laboratories.

The Zeiss Smartproof 5 wide-field confocal microscope is designed for applications in quality assurance and quality control, production, and R&D laboratories. The microscope system provides 3D reconstructions and roughness measurements for work piece surfaces. 
The microscope has an embedded optics, electronics, and camera minimizing the number of cables used. Smartproof 5 can be installed and run in different working environments without anti-vibration equipment. The machine can also complete roughness analyses in 2D (profile) and 3D (area)--both based on ISO standards. The Smartproof 5’s software provides easy-to-operate workflow routines, and a graphical user interface guides users through recurring tasks, ensuring user-independent data acquisition.
