The N3C-R cap, measuring 6,5 cm (2,5 inch) in diameter is a simple yet powerful solution to provide ring illumination for a digital microscope. The N3C-R utilizes the Dino-Lite's built-in LEDs by redirecting it to form a focused, diffused, and uniform illumination of the object. On polarized models, such as the AM4115ZT, AM4515ZT and AM4815ZT, the polarizer can still be used to reduce the unwanted glare or reflection. It is not necessary to mount or power an external ring light, so no additional heat is produced and also no noticeable weight is added. This makes the N3C-R a very economical ring light solution, adding even more flexibility when using the Dino-Lite.
Note: The N3C-R works best at a working distance between 2-15 cm. It is not suitable for usage at a shorter working distance, and is not compatible with the high magnification models, such as AM4515T5 or AM4515T8.
