Special Stands & Lighting

Motorized XYZ-Axis Free Angle Stand

To accommodate to many objects and observational applications, Hirox has created both a Straight type stand and an Angle type stand (angle 90°) for the digital microscope.

The XY stage can rotate, and with some versions can have the height and angle changed. The Motorized Z-Axis Block (Z-Axis motion solution 0.05μ), makes it easy to focus during high magnification observation without any stress.

The motor can be controlled freely by the 3D Mouse.

Motorized XY-Axis Large Stage

Large Motorized XY-Axis Stage allows for the observation of large samples with effective stroke of 110mm x 100mm.

High intesity LED transmitted lighting is built in for obsevation of various samples.

Dome Lighting

Metal and other reflective samples can be especially difficult to image, as wherever the light source is will be reflected on the sample. With this accessory however, the lighting is coming from 360 degrees around the sample, giving even lighting across the sample. This is especially useful for challenging samples like metal ball bearings.

UV Lighting

Ultraviolet lighting is below 380nm outside the visible light spectrum and can be used to increase the image resolution beyond the limit of standard optical microscopes. This can be used to better see cracks in solder. UV light also increases the contrast of certain samples relative to their surroundings, due to the interaction of light with the molecules within the sample itself. One example is protein crystals.

Transmitted Polarized Lighting

Using a filter with the condenser, light can be restricted to a single direction of vibration. This filter can enhance an image by reducing light intensity and glare. This is especially useful with transparent biological samples, as different elements/features of the sample can be observed by changing the direction of the light.
