B-1000 Material Science (MET)

OPTIKA B-1000 material science microscopes are the result of an extensive modularity combined with the state-of-the-art, exclusive and high performing X-LED lighting source.
The extreme configuration flexibility offers the user these choices:

–  Microscope body with incident light only (without transmitted light system).
–  Microscope body with both incident and transmitted light, this is based on the exclusive X-LED8 lighting source (8 W, corresponding to 100 W halogen bulb).
–  Epi-illumination attachment powered by a built-in 100 W halogen lamp.
–  Epi-illumination attachment powered by the exclusive X-LED lighting source, boosted at 18 W power, corresponding to over 150 W halogen bulb.
Finally, B-1000MET can be configured for brightfield mode or for both brightfield and darkfield observation in reflected light.

B-1000MET features the outstanding brightness and incredible colour reproduction, to be a reliable solution for routine and research metallurgical and material science applications in several industries. Fully modular, B-1000MET gives multiple options of configuration, from basic manual controls to a fully motorized version, including motorized nosepiece, stage and focus.

A completely new design and a dye-cast aluminum stand offer solidity and durability, for the most demanding laboratory use. Low position focus and stage controls allow a fast and comfortable operation. Frequently used controls as light intensity adjustment and diaphragm are also placed in the lower part of the stand and enable operation without having to take the eyes off the specimen.

X-LED White Illumination

X-LED illumination system is based on a pure white high-efficiency LED and a special optics. It guarantees constant color temperature, no heat, and an extreme electrical consumption efficiency. The whole system is pre-aligned and boasts a lifetime of 50.000

X-LED8 – Two Times Brighter Than Any Other


» Unmatched colour fidelity and brightness of your specimen
» Special technology, able to double the light intensity
» Constant pure-white colour temperature (6.300K)


» Money & energy saving
» Low power consumption, only 8 W
» LED long lifetime (50.000 hours = 20 years at 8 hours/day usage)


X-Y-Z motorized stage

Remote-controlled microscope

The stage can be remote-controlled through a dedicated software: X, Y, Z axes, as well as nosepiece, can be moved with a single click. Communication protocol is available for interfacing with custom software, such as automated analysis or autofocus.

Light under control

Intelligent control of the microscope illumination: the “AUTO-OFF” function automatically switches the light off after a user-selectable time period. “BOOST” gives an extra high level of illumination for light-demanding applications. “AUTO” allows to store an illumination level, and to maintain it throughout the inspection.
