The Quasar R magnifying glass is the result of scientific research that VisibleDust supports through partnerships with various universities. As a company based on utilization of scientific knowledge, VisibleDust is proud to introduce an original and innovative device called the Quasar® R 5x Sensor Loupe® Magnifier with Dark Adaptation Technology.  This unique magnifying glass uses dark adaptation technology to improve visual acuity and vision. Dust and dirt particles are made visible that are not visible under normal white light.

The easiest way to detect if you have debris on your sensor is by using the Sensor Loupe® with magnification and LED technology. This will enable you clearly see any contamination on the sensor and within the chamber area itself.

The Quasar R magnifying glass is equipped with fourteen bright LED lamps, seven of which produce a special red light based on a wavelength that increases the visibility of dust particles. At this special wavelength, the red light produces the maximum extension of the pupil in the iris. This increases the sensitivity of the photoreceptors in the eye many times over. After just a few seconds, the pupil is widened so that you can perceive the sensor more clearly and with more details.

The Quasar R has a fivefold magnification and is equipped with high-quality ED glass. This in turn is provided with a fluoride coating (MgF2) to reduce light reflections and chromatic aberrations. In addition, the Quasar R magnifying glass is equipped with a 67mm metal filter thread to connect filters or an extension tube so that you can achieve further extraneous light shading.

The “Bright Vue” technology allows a three-dimensional representation with 7 white or red LEDs each, arranged at different angles. Thus, every little contamination can be identified.

The Quasar R magnifying glass is powered by two CR2032 batteries, which are included. The magnifying glass is delivered in a small hard case with a precise fitting rigid foam insert.

Button Battery Warning

WARNING! KEEP BATTERIES OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN. Never allow children to replace button batteries on any device. Swallowing or placing inside any part of the body may lead to severe or fatal injuries in as little as 2 hours or less due to chemical burns and potential perforation of the oesophagus.

If you suspect your child has swallowed a button battery or placed inside any part of the body immediately call the POISONS INFORMATION CENTRE on 13 11 26 for prompt advice. If your child is having any difficulty breathing, contact 000.

Dispose of used button/coin batteries immediately and safely. A battery can still be dangerous even when it can no longer operate the device. Place sticky tape around both sides of the battery and dispose of it immediately out of reach of children in an outside bin or recycle safely.

Please see button battery safety information from the Australian Competition & Consumer Commission (ACCC).

  1. Package includes two CR2032 lithium batteries separate from the Quasar® R
  2. Insert both the batteries with PLUS signs facing upwards
  3. Dim or turn off any light sources in the room
  4. Allow a minimum of one minute in total darkness for dark adaptation to take place
  5. Turn on the red LED Quasar® R light only, scan chosen surface
  6. For additional inspection use white LED

Visibledust sensor cleaning solutions and swabs are calibrated to work together to produce optimal and safe results. Please DO NOT USE alternative solutions with our swab. A simple grain of quartz that is found in cheaper solutions are enough to produce an expensive scratch on the low pass filter. Our solutions are manufactured to the highest standard of quality that is practiced in pharmaceutical industries.

Visibledust solutions are calibrated for NORMAL evaporative rates:

  1. to keep the swab moist at all time to reduce the risk of scratch
  2. to increase the cleaning power, less swabbing more economical
  3. to reduce friction by being moist all time during swabbing

The potential risk of FAST evaporative solutions used as sensor cleaning are the following:

  1. an increase in the risk of damage and stress to sensor coating by using a premature dry swab
  2. a great reduction in cleaning power by shortening the contact time between contaminants and solution due to the increased evaporation rate of the solution
  3. increase in friction by using a premature drying swab, resulting in static charge build-up leading to an even greater dust accumulation on the sensor

Our cleaning liquids are intended to be placed on the swab first, so the concern for liquid seeping through the sensor is not valid or accurate. On the other hand, the disadvantages of a generic brand or FAST evaporative liquid used for sensor cleaning may in fact may cause damage to the sensor by requiring repeat swabbing and is not recommended.
