High Magnification Ranges Are Standard in Aven's New Stereo Zoom Microscopes
Press release date: December 10, 2014
The binocular and trinocular models have 15x eyepieces to achieve 21x to 135x continuous zoom magnification at a working distance of 3.3 inches (84 millimeters).
Magnification rises to a range of 28x to 180x with an optional 20x eyepiece.
The scopes have advantages for circuit board checks or repairs, other small parts inspection, medical device manufacturing, forensic examination, life sciences lab work such as dissection and fossil study and cleaning.
“Our new microscopes offers an industry-leading range that typically requires an upgraded objective lens or eyepiece purchase,” says Aven president Mike Shahpurwala. "Continuous zoom capability and crisp resolution boost productivity."
Eyepieces are set at a 45-degree angle and have an interpupillary distance adjustment, allowing comfortable use even by operators with glasses. Each eyepiece tube also has a diopter adjustment.
Both Aven models can be customized with lighting and optical accessories tailored to specific needs, including four stand selections: pole with focus mount, pole with LED lighting and dual arm booms with a base or clamp. They’re also available in complete system choices with stand, mount, illumination and auxiliary optical components.
The Japanese-engineered binocular and trinocular scopes have multi-coated optics with an assurance of no spherical or chromatic aberrations.
“High-grade glass and a straight light path provide maximum clarity and undistorted viewing in these Greenough optical system scopes, unlike some entry-level instruments,” Shahpurwala adds. “These sophisticated products are precise, reliable and adaptable for varied operations in high-volume settings.”
Click-stop zoom adjustments ensure accurate, repeatable measurements. The trinocular body has a one-touch fine focus adjustment.
Aven microscopes are manufactured for the Michigan-based supplier by Carton Optical Instruments, Ltd., of Japan, a leading maker of telescopes, binoculars and ophthalmic instruments.
They enlarge a stereo microscopy line with six other zoom models and three standard versions.
