This budget priced Metallurgical Microscope series features two models, one with reflected light and the other with both reflected and transmitted light. These microscopes are ideal for work on opaque samples. The advanced features and precision optics make this an outstanding value.
The viewing head is Seidentopf and trinocular with an erect imaging, multi-coated transmission prism system. Its angle of inclination is 30 degrees, it rotates 360 degrees, and the interpupillary adjustment is from 55- 75mm.
The nosepiece is quadruple with reversed ball-bearings. Both models are supplied with four DIN Plan Achromatic long working distance objectives, 4x, 10x, 25x and 40x. A graduated mechanical stage (185 x 140mm) with low position fine focus controls, graduated to 2 microns per division allows for comfort and ease of use. The Abbe Condenser 1.25 N.A. has an iris diaphragm, easily centered spring loaded knobs and is focusable with a rack & pinion mechanism.
There is a dual halogen illumination system, upper and lower, each 6v 20w variable quartz halogen on model #1242. The transmitted illumination provides for Kohler illumination and is supplied with blue and neutral density filters and centerable knobs. The incident illumination system includes condenser, iris diaphragm; four-color filter wheel (yellow, green, blue, & neutral) and polarizing filter.
The base is stable 210 x 180mm fitted with anti skid rubber feet and made of all cast metal construction, black hand rests and stain resistant enamel finish. Dimensions are 210mm (L) x 180mm (W) x 400mm (H), net weight is 7.5 kg. The microscope comes with a five year manufactures warranty plus an additional extended one year internet for a total of six years.
