PACHMET G600 Microscope with 4,3 "LCD - made in china - Test / Review / Des

CMS 8520 64
This content has been translated » The original version can be found here
  • Today I will present you a very interesting microscope equipped with its own LCD screen (because it does not look like OLED or even IPS). I got the device for testing from one of our forum colleagues - @Bestler Thank you very much, and sorry for "messing" ...
    But to the point.

    The microscope can be purchased from our friends from the east, for $ 31- $ 41, depending on the version of the tripod. I got it with a plastic one and to my surprise it works quite well, but when I order for myself, I will choose the version with a metal stand.
    Please note that shipping is not free in this case.

    As always, a photo from the Aliexpress auction, what we read in the auction description is the only thing I know about this device. It does not show the name of the manufacturer or the product model.

    I do not know where to start, because this time the tests did not go completely according to my plan. I had the outline of the article in my head, but something happened and it turned the whole plan upside down.
    But let's start from the beginning ... Or this time better from the end. As you probably read at the beginning, I thanked Bestler for renting the equipment, and at the same time I apologized to him because I "broke" his microscope, or actually, it broke itself, which would probably have happened anyway.

    When I was during the photo session of the microscope itself and the photos taken with it, the device crashed twice. The first time it was enough to hold the On / Off button, the second time, it was necessary to press the reset button on the back of the housing.
    After the session was over, I connected the microscope to the computer in order to download the photos, which was achieved without any complications. Unfortunately, after disconnecting the microscope from the USB port, it stopped responding - another "pauses". From then on, it can only be "turned on" and will be displayed on the welcome screen. You can not turn off the same button, you can only press the reset button, which will turn it off. I would forget you can still access your data when connected to a computer.

    Tomorrow a friend will be with me @Artur k. with his microscope (identical) and we will read the contents of 25Q80 from it in order to upload it to the Bestler microscope to (hopefully) bring it to life. If this happens, I will not fail to share with you the obtained batch.
    That's it for the introduction and explanation.

    So it is time for the proper article, and I will say that the microscope made a great impression on me. For just over 150 Polish zlotys (at today's dollar exchange rate) we can have a device that will really make our work easier.

    Let's start with the "let's say it" tech specs.
    Device parameters declared by the seller:
    1. Pixel: HD 3.6MP (whatever that means).
    2. Display: 4: 3 inches HD OLED display. (As for me it is plain TFT with unknown resolution but certainly far from FullHD which I mean by 1920x1080).
    3. Magnificaion: 1-600X continuos magnification system.
    4: Object distance: 15mm - infinity (Depend on the different distance).

    A little break for a few photos so as not to bore you.

    But what about the photos of the microscope, I think you prefer photos taken with it.
    There you have it :)

    The first two photos show the view on the LCD screen, and the next two are photos taken with a microscope. It is a one-grosz coin with the highest magnification I could get.
    As you can see, the screen built into the microscope certainly does not have a resolution of 1920x1080p. It doesn't even have 720p. Nevertheless, it is readable enough to easily see what interests us.

    If you don't believe me, I think that a few more photos will quickly dispel your doubts.

    As you can see in the photos above, we have a lot of space under the lens and we can easily operate either with a soldering iron or a Hot Air.

    The microscope has the function of taking photos with a resolution of 5MP. Just press the "OK" button after selecting the shooting mode. Well, but at this point we will lose focus at the bank, at best. Because usually when you press any button, or even touch the microscope, the entire frame moves. The manufacturer solved this problem very cleverly, because the photo is taken only after a few seconds, when the device stabilizes (stops vibrating).

    Above are some photos taken with "reasonable magnification".
    So let's see what I can "squeeze" on the biggest one I managed to get.

    The photo shows a microprint from a banknote. The question is what is the denomination? :D

    As you can see, he can do quite a lot.

    And finally, the "test plate" that I received with the previous microscope (this one was made "by hand" from a distance of about 50 cm. If I had anything to attach the microscope to, the photo would be 100% sharp.

    As you can see in the pictures above, despite the small 4.3 "screen, you can see quite a lot.
    A plastic articulated tripod, attached to a suction cup made of very soft and sticky silicone rubber, can be attached even to very rough surfaces and holds very tightly. If it gets dirty, you can easily wash it and restore its "full grip". I have to say he's not as bad as I thought. For myself, however, I would order the version with a metal tripod.

    It is also worth noting that we have a Polish menu with some interesting functions, and among them one surprised me. You can change the backlight frequency. We have a choice of 50Hz or 60Hz. It's about eliminating flicker in the image.

    I also allowed myself to disassemble the microscope, because something was wrong with the focus / zoom knob. I was also interested in what type and capacity of the battery I would find inside. After taking it apart, it turned out that the structure of the lens "regulator" is the same and it cannot be improved quickly.
    I didn't read the battery capacity either, because I didn't want to tear off this beautiful yellow sticker (after all, the equipment is not mine). You can see, however, that the cell is not much larger than 103450 (which can be obtained from laptop batteries and has a capacity of 1800-2000mAh, so the original battery can be easily replaced).

    Summarizing.
    In my opinion, as a longtime electronics service worker, this small and cheap microscope can be a really useful device that effectively supports the eye of a service technician. If we take into account the price of this tool (because it is certainly something more than a toy), there is nothing else for me to do but honestly recommend this microscope to you. I am almost determined to buy. But I have some concerns about this crash and eventually "crash". May we have a successful transplant tomorrow. When I have a spare charge and a few programmed ICs at hand, I am not afraid of such "pads".

    Allow me to attach three photos from the auction (I think my friend will not be offended).

    In the meantime, thank you for reading and reading.
    I hope that I will be able to find some more time for you now, because you will admit that I missed writing recently.

    Ps.
    You are probably wondering, how do I know that the 25Q80 "memory is there", since I haven't broken the sticker.
    I'm in a hurry, with the answer, well, after the breakdown, I took the microscope apart again, took off the sticker and checked what was inside. By the way, I was able to read the declared battery capacity, amounting to 2500mAh, which seems quite likely considering its size.

    Best regards.

    EDIT 16/11/2018:


    Colleague Artur k. as promised, he visited me today with his microscope. As I did not have the 25Q80 memory available, we decided to start the game by trying to read the damaged microscope Bestler test carried out with the programmer Arthur , not knowing why it failed, either with a clip or after desoldering the chip. And not because something was wrong with the microscope / memory, because the same test on a working device also failed. So I connected my programmer, connected "suspicious" memory and read its contents. Scalak was clean.

    PACHMET G600 Microscope with 4,3 "LCD - made in china - Test / Review / Des

    So I connected the clip to the memory on Arthur's microscope's plate and downloaded the batch.

    PACHMET G600 Microscope with 4,3 "LCD - made in china - Test / Review / Des

    We decided to try to program this empty memory from the outlet. Unfortunately, the attempt was unsuccessful. As I did not have the 25Q80 chip at hand, I used the 25Q32 in a slightly larger housing, but it easily replaced the previous one. I uploaded the batch, the verification was successful. I soldered the memory, pinned all the tapes and soldered the battery ...

    PACHMET G600 Microscope with 4,3 "LCD - made in china - Test / Review / Des PACHMET G600 Microscope with 4,3 "LCD - made in china - Test / Review / Des

    Now the moment of truth :D , fire up ...
    And unfortunately we have the same effect, ie the microscope "hangs" on the welcome screen. :(

    The next attempt is to read new memory, the result is the same as before - clean chip.
    PACHMET G600 Microscope with 4,3 "LCD - made in china - Test / Review / Des

    Another programming attempt was unsuccessful, it looks like another scaler has failed. I'm afraid it might not be possible to fix this.
    Just then I found out from Bestler that the microscope is under Chinese warranty, so it will probably get a new art. So it turns out that I was having unnecessary fun :) .
    I'll let you know when it ends.
    Meanwhile, since I already have a ripped batch, I add it to you as an attachment, and it will be useful to someone.

    A quite interesting microscope, but with its durability. Is it just a defective unit that got damaged during the tests, or maybe everyone has such a defect (eg poorly designed power supply or no capacitors on the board, because I have met with something like that) and it's only a matter of time when it will "fail".
    As for the contest :D I shoot after the color that it will be 50 PLN.

    It looks like a converted car recorder. I have a very similar one. The menu is exactly the same in terms of appearance. Hence the holder on the suction cup. And as for the banknote, I would bet 100 PLN. Out of those in my pocket, only he has greenish letters, fragments of which can be seen. This pattern is on all banknotes and although the color is more suited to the 50, it is a very similar color (especially at such a high magnification).

    I can already see the correct answer.

    @CMS nice test. I have a question and please don't take it as "picking on" but ...
    How is this microscope better than a magnifying glass? :-D
    So from experience, how could you compare it? Is it more convenient?

    I don't have a magnifying glass with such a high magnification, so there's nothing to compare it to. The problem with the magnifier is that the image changes depending on the viewing angle and distance to the magnifier's eye. There is no such problem here.

    Exactly. I would like to add that with the magnifying glass, constantly looking away and focusing on the point again causes "tiring" my eyesight (at least I do, which leads to a headache with longer games - I do not know if it is because I have a visual impairment or it is natural).

    Out of curiosity, is the delay big? And maybe when you undressed, you looked at what layout this webcam is made of (maybe something from HiSilicon?)

    Because the magnifier is not suitable for working under it, you can use it to see if there are any short circuits on the PCB, etc.

    If you want to work (solder etc.) it is best to use a stereoscopic microscope and there is no replacement here (unfortunately you have to spend a bit). Electronic microscopes that have a small delay can be from poverty, but it is less convenient to work with something like this because you do not have a sense of distance.

    Could colleague Artur k. Take with his microscope and post a few photos of the silicon structure of the integrated circuit at the highest magnification, e.g. eprom memory? I am very curious how this equipment will handle it.


    And the question: Does this microscope actually take 5MP photos, or is it a smaller resolution multiplied to 5MP? For example, I have a usb microscope, which supposedly has a 2MP camera, and saves 640x480 photos.

    If you respect your money, buy yourself at least TPL ICD 20x BINO for PLN 180. It is perpendicular, has a small field of view, but it is stereoscopic and can be soldered underneath it after reworking the tripod and viewing very little connections with quality at the cosmic level compared to this Chinese junk made from an outdated car video recorder.
    A decent stereoscopic microscope for electronics costs 2-3 thousand. PLN and no Chinese will overcome it with their toys with LCD screen and cosmic magnification useless for anything.
    Unfortunately, there are no half-measures on this topic.

    @ slavo666

    In fact, most of the microscopes that are in the range of amateurs are china ... but that's not the point ;)

    Let's say that this microscope is ok for a quick inspection or just taking some photos (if it does not fall ;) ) and that's basically it. I asked here how it is with delay because it is also important if someone wants to solder under such an LCD microscope, but no one gave an answer ...

    In fact, when it comes to electronic assembly and other works, e.g. mechanical (engraving, etc.), nothing can replace a stereoscopic microscope.

    Here, the prices are different from China, you can download three glasses with a camera, etc. for about 3,000 PLN. (with all fees), but you can also buy equipment around PLN 1000 in PL, e.g. a microscope appearing under the names (differing in lighting and optics provided in the set) Amscope SE400, Bresser BIORIT ICD CS 20x, Delta Optical Discovery L, Optek MST C- 2D for this, buy a better illuminator in China (solutions, e.g. like here https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2502570) and there is already something sensible. Alternatively, just buy a cheaper one and make a reasonable grip ...

    It is true that most, if not all, microscopes available in Poland are from China, even those for 3k :) If you pay them well, they can do miracles.

    Perhaps someone will find this gadget useful. Maybe someone is looking at coins or stamps or something like that, I don't deny it.
    However, when it comes to working with electronics and soldering and inspecting small connections (i.e. elements in 0603 and smaller housings, TQFP chips, etc.), such a gadget loses to a good 10x magnifying glass when it comes to image detail, which is the basis for verifying the connection and detecting short circuits. It is enough that the plate is dirty or the element is flooded with flux and you can see nothing but blurry reflections of light in the photo and grain (tragic interpolation), let alone on this small low resolution display.
    Added to this are the issues of optics, i.e. one lens - no spatial image and low depth of field.

    The device gives an apparent impression of usefulness because it is independent and does not require connection to a computer. And standard in this type of construction - a huge magnification is given, which in practice is not applicable.

    I also used to look for and play in making such a "microscope" for soldering with various results. Until I looked through the professional equipment and realized that this fight is pointless and you just have to empty the pouch for good optics.
    Having 200-300 PLN, you can combine with a full hd web camera and lens or RPi Zero with HDMI output. It will be a much better solution than the one in the subject.

    Admin of DIY, Automation
    Repeatedly called to answer, I cordially greet all supporters of my colleague's editor @CMS ;)

    I am in a hurry to announce that the "microscope" of the toy, fortunately, I managed to fix it and everything turned out well ;)

    As for my assessment, I can confidently write that for PLN 100 the device is great, not only for viewing postage stamps, but also for electronics. The delay is noticeable, but it is so slight that you can easily work with it with a soldering iron.

    I have several devices of this type, including a USB handheld camera, and two other microscopes, but the one described in this article is definitely the best and really worth recommending - of course, all the time remembering that the value is only PLN 100.

    As for the comparison with the liking - on a daily basis, due to the already crouching eyesight, I use a 10x magnifier and in 99% of cases it is enough. I most often use this device described here for inspection, due to the quite high magnification, e.g. for viewing a freshly soldered process 128 pin per mm2 or something like that ;) Also, in my opinion there is more than a toy, if someone has a very limited budget, it is worth it.

    I will say otherwise ;) I am no longer a young person and my eyesight is not that, but here it is better to invest in even the simplest stereoscopic microscope - I told myself yes, eyes are more important than those few thousand ... ;)

    BTW I ordered the microscope out of curiosity ;) the fact in a pub can sometimes spend more ;)

    I have had a similar copy for several days. For the price it is very good.
    Convenient to use. I bought it because the hand-held magnifiers (and the so-called third hand with a magnifying glass) and the magnifying glass in the workshop lamp are no longer sufficient and not only for the problem of eye aging :) but for some jobs they become inconvenient.

    It is known that tastes and habits are not discussed.
    However, for an amateur, I recommend it, and if someone has more money and ambition, he can even buy an atomic microscope if he has such a whim :)

    As for working in an electronics workshop where several hours a day have to work with magnifications, it is worth investing in a better device, which does not exclude the purchase described in this topic and use at work ...

    As for the defect, there are no such problems in my copy.

    @aglange

    You know it depends what we use. As I mentioned, when there is a delay this can be a problem. In addition, the lack of spatial vision makes it difficult to operate tools with such equipment. Probably with larger elements it does not bother but when we go down to 0402 and smaller it can be problematic. Anyway, as I mentioned, I ordered myself out of curiosity and I will see in practice what it is worth, and such nonsense can always be useful for something - just in the basement to search for parts on some old records ;) In total, the plan is still to add a tripod holder to the dial gauge on a 3D printer, as in one test of these microscopes ;)

    Another thing, as mentioned, the microscope does not have to be expensive, you can come up with something cheaper. Looking at the prices, e.g. the tripod for the head itself is expensive and costs about $ 300 (including a lot of shipment because it weighs something). If you consider purchasing a head separately and making a tripod yourself, the price can be pulled down a lot (e.g. not everyone needs a three-track head, etc.).

    Normalka sometimes shipments pass through the customs office and nothing happens, i.e. it does not go to customs. I was also thinking about this tripod, but in total I ordered a version with an attachment and eventually I will use it with a dial indicator holder (patent from the video on YT comparing such electronic microscopes).

    Just something like this:

    You will probably need to make a handle on a 3D printer and there will be a set ...

    Unfortunately, my microscope has so far stuck somewhere in China and is waiting to be shipped to PL ...

    How much time can you work with a fully charged battery? For me, the battery is very short, do you have it too?

    Long, non-stop operation works half a day or better.

    Recently, I used the microscope for about 2.5-3 hours and there is one more line of the battery left.
