Description

  • Stereo microscope for use in classroom, home school, or hobbyist settings
  • Binocular head with pair of widefield 10x 23mm eyepieces with 55 to 75mm inter-pupillary adjustment, fixed 45-degree vertical inclination to reduce eye and neck strain, and 360-degree rotation capability to provide a more comprehensive view and enable sharing
  • 2x and 4x parfocal, parcentered, achromatic objectives on a rotating turret for 20x and 40x optical magnification, and low magnification and longer focal length for inspecting large-scale specimens
  • Variable upper and lower LED lighting with two switches for three light configurations; upper light has adjustable angle
  • Fixed stage, dual focusing knobs on rack-and-pinion mount with slip clutch and tension adjustment, frosted 100mm glass stage plate with clips for holding samples, reversible (black/white) 100mm plastic stage plate, and blue filter for transmitted light
  • The Swift Optical SM98-SM90CL Advanced Modular binocular stereo microscope has 10x widefield 23mm eyepieces, a fixed
    45-degree angle viewing inclination, 55 to 75mm inter-pupillary adjustment, 360-degree rotation, 2x/4x objectives for
    20x/40x total optical magnification, upper/lower LED lighting, a fixed stage with dual focusing knobs, a frosted 100mm
    glass plate with clips, and a reversible (black/white) 100mm stage plate. The binocular viewing head has eyepieces with
    inter-pupillary adjustment, rubber eyepiece shields to block ambient light, fixed inclination to reduce eye and neck
    strain, and 360-degree rotation capability to provide a more comprehensive view and enable sharing. The objectives are
    mounted on a turret to ease magnification changes. Parcentered and parfocal objectives ensure that the image stays
    centered and focused when the magnification is changed. Achromatic objectives provide color correction of magnified
    images. The objectives provide low magnification and a longer focal length for inspecting large-scale specimens, or
    specimens that require hands-on manipulation or repair, including rocks, minerals, watches, or circuit boards. The
    microscope has upper (episcopic) illumination that reflects light off the specimen for enhanced visibility of opaque
    specimens and lower (diascopic) illumination that transmits light up through the specimen for enhanced visibility of
    translucent and transparent objects. The LED light source provides bright, cool light for working with
    temperature-sensitive or live specimens. The lights are controlled by two switches that offer three different
    configurations (upper, lower, and simultaneous upper and lower) and the intensity of the upper and lower lights is
    controlled by a rheostat. The frosted glass stage plate allows light to pass through from below and has a blue filter
    for increased resolution. The reversible black and white stage plate is used with top-mounted (episcopic) lighting to
    provide contrast with light- and dark-colored specimens. The fixed stage has stage clips to secure the slide or specimen
    in place while viewing. Dual knobs on a rack-and-pinion mount with a slip clutch and tension control provide precise
    focus. A C-wrench tool (included) enables adjustment of focus control. A stereo microscope, sometimes called an
    inspection or dissection microscope, has a longer working distance that enables users to manipulate the object being
    inspected, and is used in semiconductor and electronics industries or by mineralogists, dentists, and students when the
    user needs to handle or perform work under magnification, including circuit boards, rocks and gems, and dental
    appliances.

    The microscope frame is constructed of cast metal and has an enamel finish for durability. It has a cord hanger for
    storage. The microscope is 14-3/4 x 6-3/4 x 9-1/2 inches/375 x 167 x 242mm (H x W x D, where H is height, the vertical
    distance from the lowest to highest point; W is width, the horizontal distance from left to right; and D is depth, the
    horizontal distance from front to back). A USB port can be used to add-on accessories such as USB lighting. It comes
    with a vinyl dust cover and molded polystyrene foam container.

    Microscopes are instruments used to enhance the resolution of an object or image. Types include compound, stereo, or
    digital. Compound microscopes use a compound optical system with an objective lens and an eyepiece. Stereo microscopes
    show object depth in a three-dimensional image. Digital microscopes are used to display an image on a monitor, rather
    than looking through a lens. Microscopes can have monocular (one), binocular (two), or trinocular (three) eyepieces,
    with varying magnification abilities. Magnification ability refers to the size of an image. Resolution, also known as
    resolvant power, refers to the clarity of the image. The interaction between field of view (FOV), numerical aperture
    (NA), and working distance (WD) determines resolution. Microscopes can control magnification through a fixed focus, or
    through a range of adjustments. They can also utilize LED, fluorescent, and mirror light sources to help control viewing
    capabilities. Microscopes are widely used in education, lab research, biology, metallurgy, engineering, chemistry,
    manufacturing, and in the medical, forensic science, and veterinary industries.

    Swift Optical Instruments manufactures microscopes and weather instruments. The company, founded in 1959, is
    headquartered in Schertz, TX.
