Aven Integrates Ring Light In Stereo Zoom Scope System

ANN ARBOR, Mich. — A new illuminated microscope system has a 60-LED ring light as an embedded element of the focus mount.

The combination adds one-piece convenience and practicality to Aven’s most popular stereo zoom binocular scope, which now can be selected with illumination securely installed. The SPZ-50 model microscope offers a magnification range of 6.7x to 50x, or up to 200x with three optional lenses and eyepieces.

“Our inclusive system treats the ring light as an integral component, rather than a screw-on accessory,” explains Mike Shahpurwala, president of Aven, Inc. “We’ve eliminated any risk of damage from a loosened ring light dropping on products being inspected.”

The wide field of view and long working distance make Aven’s SPZ-50 suited to high-volume inspection stations, R&D engineering labs and science applications. Precision lenses result in high-definition images from edge to-edge. Coarse and fine focus settings allow meticulous control. 

Five dozen white LEDs create a shadow-free lighting intensity of 35,000 lux, assuring accuracy and crisp imaging. A dimmer control lets operators vary illumination and turn it off.


“This model and others in our microscope lines reflect the clear distinctions of Japanese-engineered instruments, which are designed and manufactured to industry-leading standards,” Shahpurwala says.

“High-grade optical glass and a straight light path provide maximum clarity and undistorted viewing,” adds the Michigan executive, who founded Aven 30 years ago.  

The SPZ-50 system includes a double arm boom stand with tiltable arbor that adjusts to any position for ideal viewing angles and use over large areas. A high eye point (17mm, or about three-quarters of an inch) also supports comfortable use, even for operators with eyeglasses.

A 21-pound metal base provides stability, and an articulating arm is available as an option.

The system comes with a dust cover, rubber eye guards  and tension control pin.
