MAGUS Stereo D9T

MAGUS Stereo D9T Digital Stereomicroscope
With a camera. Magnification: 7–63x. The Greenough optical design. Trinocular head, LED transmitted light illuminator 5W, LED reflected light oblique illuminator 3W

The stereomicroscope is designed for studying three-dimensional objects and their structure. The microscope is equipped with built-in transmitted and reflected light illuminators for observing transparent and opaque specimens. Optionally, you can use the polarized light microscopy technique. The Greenough optical design provides a large depth of field and delivers three-dimensional image thanks to a 15° stereo angle. The microscope magnifies the image of the specimen without loss of spatial orientation. It is comfortable to examine samples in its working area of 110–188mm and, therefore, the microscope can be used for restoration, soldering, assembly, quality control, and other similar operations.

Digital camera
The MAGUS CBF10 digital camera is designed for the brightfield microscopy technique.
The camera is equipped with an 18MP sensor and produces realistic images at a resolution of 4912x3684pix. The camera is recommended for use with 4x and 10x flat-field microscope objectives as well as stereomicroscopes. When working with low magnification objectives, the camera will enable you to see more fine details.
At maximum resolution, video is captured at 13.1fps. It is enough for adjusting the focus of the microscope.
At resolutions of 2456x1842pix and 1228x922pix, the frequency increases to 34.3fps and 54.4fps. The transitions between frames become softer and the camera catches the slightest movement of the sample. These modes are suitable for classroom demonstrations, recording video of fast-moving processes, and observing samples that are moving.
The camera is equipped with a USB 3.0 interface. The data transfer speed is 10 times faster than USB 2.0 cameras. The high-speed camera is recommended for professional laboratories, research, or university training.

Microscope head
The trinocular head rotates 360°. The digital camera is mounted in the trinocular tube. The C-mount adapter for mounting the camera is included with the microscope.

Zoom lens
The objective smoothly increases magnification up to 9x without the depth of focus decrease. The microscope delivers an upright (not inverted) three-dimensional image. Auxiliary objective lenses may change the magnification range, field of view, and working distance of the microscope.

Focusing mechanism
The coaxial coarse and fine focusing knobs are on both sides. Fine focusing is ideal for observations at magnifications above 40x. The coarse tension can also be adjusted.

Stage plates
You can choose a transparent, white or black-and-white plate depending on the sample. The transparent and white plates ensure homogeneous illumination of the specimen and optimal light diffusion for observing transparent and translucent samples. The black-and-white plate is ideal for observing opaque samples against a contrasting background: The black side is for light-colored objects and the white side for dark-colored objects.

Light source
The microscope is equipped with the LED transmitted light illuminator (5W) and the reflected light oblique illuminator (3W). The lifetime of the LEDs is 50,000 hours.

There is a line of accessories designed specifically for this microscope. Eyepieces and auxiliary objective lenses can extend the magnification range of the microscope. The 0.5 auxiliary objective increases the working distance. A digital camera outputs the image from the microscope on a monitor. A calibration slide helps with the precise measurement of specimens. The scale value on the calibration slide of stereo microscopes is 0.1mm. A polarization device removes any glare from the image of polished metal surfaces.
