Mobility and Ergonomics


Mobile System Provides on-the-spot Inspections Anywhere

Compact Body
The compact body can be installed in a limited space and is also portable, meeting the requirements for on-the-spot inspection either in the lab or alongside the production line.

Ergonomical Eyepoint Adjustment

Tilting Binocular Observation Tube
A tilting binocular observation tube allows the operator to utilize the GX41 either while standing or sitting and provides a comfortable working environment.

Superior Image Clarity and Superb Resolution for Brightfield and Polarized Light


Clear, Bright Observation at All Magnification

MPLN Series
Newly improved inspection efficiency thanks to UIS2 infinity-corrected optics, which allow high-clarity observation with outstanding images filling the entire field of view (F.N.22). Objective magnifications extend from 5x to 100x, for both brightfield and simple polarizing observations.



Example Observation Images

Illumination Systems

A 100W Fiber Light Source Combination
In addition to the standard 6V30W halogen light source, a 100W fiber light source is available which provides brighter illumination to low-reflection specimens.
