Environmental temperature and pressure

Dino-Lite Part °F Rating °C Rating
Internal electronic components 14°F ~ 131°F -10°C ~ 55°C
External Housing 14°F ~ 158°/ 176°F -10°C ~ 70°C / 80°C
Microscope USB Cable -4°F ~ 176°F -20°C ~ 80°C
AM nozzle 14°F ~ 266°F -10°C ~ 130°C
AD nozzles 14°F ~ 158°F -10°C ~ 70°C
WF-10 Use: 32°F ~ 104°F Storage: -4°F ~ 140°F Use: 0°C ~ 40°C Storage: -20° C ~ 60° C

Note: Due to the internal adhesive, using the device in an environment over 70°C is NOT recommended. In higher temperature applications it’s recommended to use a metal exterior unit.


High-pressure environment
Dino-Lite models with a 3rd digit "1" or 2nd letter "A" in the model number (I.e. AD3713TB, AD4113T, AM4113ZT, AM413ZTAS, etc.) are designed with a special housing that makes them better suited for high pressure environments. The MSAH302 Protective Enclosure (sold separately) can also help protect the Dino-Lite in high pressure environments. Dino-Lite digital microscopes can operate in pressures up to 125 psi if the pressure is gradually increased. The pressure should not be rapidly increased.


Vacuum environment
Dino-Lite are not recommended for use in a vacuum environment as there are potential issues with lubrication of the magnification dial.
