What kind of environment can a Dino-Lite operate in?

Dino-Lite Part°F Rating°C Rating
Internal electronic components14°F ~ 131°F-10°C ~ 55°C
External Housing14°F ~ 158°/ 176°F-10°C ~ 70°C / 80°C
Microscope USB Cable-4°F ~ 176°F-20°C ~ 80°C
AM nozzle14°F ~ 266°F-10°C ~ 130°C
AD nozzles14°F ~ 158°F-10°C ~ 70°C
WF-10Use: 32°F ~ 104°F
Storage: -4°F ~ 140°F
Use: 0°C ~ 40°C
Storage: -20° C ~ 60° C
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 environments

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

High-humidity environments

Dino-Lite microscopes are not recommended for use in humid environments, as the internal electronics are not protected against liquid. We recommend placing the Dino-Lite in an IP rated protective enclosure before placing inside any environment with high-humidity.
