SZO Series

OPTIKA SZO Series represents a very compact Greenough stereo microscope with 6.72:1 zoom and 110mm working distance for professional environments and laboratories which allows the observation of samples without any particular preparation, yet producing incredibly crisp and detailed images.

An extensive range composed by binocular and trinocular heads with 23mm field of view for a very wide peripheral view and comfortable posture even after several hours of operation. Trinocular heads enable simultaneous eyepiece and camera observation, opening new horizons and enabling a very practical and comfortable operation.

Discover how easily an enhanced accuracy and repeatability can be achieved thanks to the click-stop zoom for precise and repetitive observations.

An extremely wide stand selection gives the chance to create tailored stereomicroscope: choose among the several models available to cover every customers’ needs, in terms of illumination (including the state-of-the-art, exclusive X-LED³ incident light of 3.6W on selected models), arm extension (including overhanging stands) and focusing system. Special external illuminators and moving/heating stages are also available for specific applications.

Keep in my mind the application, always: if you are soldering a printed circuit board, it may be more important to have a long working distance; if you are counting items, then a large field of view will be of great assistance.

Greenough Optical System

The V-shape optical path of Greenough allows us to design a very compact and a slim unit,
highly versatile and appreciated for the 3D viewing. Samples with significant depth can be quickly
inspected. Binocular and trinocular heads are 45° inclined to grant comfortable posture to the
user even after several hours of operation.

Reliable crisp images, repetable zoom settings

Discover how easy is to obtain precise reproduction of magnifications, thus simplifying inspections and measurements.

Now, with SZO your observations are easier thanks to the 11-step click-stop system in the zoom which allows you to exactly set the magnification at the same level of the previous time.

Zoom control is greatly facilitated with no need of constantly look at the magnification knob.

Incredibly practical and comfortable, especially with cameras

Trinocular heads enable simultaneous eyepiece and camera observation, opening new horizons and enabling a very practical and comfortable operation. Watch at the same time your specimen on a monitor and directly in the eyepieces, without any setting.

6.72:1 ZOOM RATIO

SZO Series has 0.67x-4.5x zoom range (6.72:1 zoom ratio), being purposely designed for routine inspections.
This zoom ratio enables most samples to be observed at the appropriate magnifications.
When combined with proper accessories (2x additional lens and 20x eyepieces),
SZO delivers excellent image quality up to 225x.

OVERHANGING STAND, IN CASE OF LARGE SAMPLES

This stand is recommended for efficient, quick and precise observation and digital imaging of large samples,
that cannot be processed with regular stands. Achieve 360° rotation and smooth movement with no limits,
as the mechanism can be tilted from right to left, backward to forward.
On SZO-7, SZO-8, SZO-9, SZO-10.

LARGE WORKING DISTANCE AND FIELD OF VIEW SIZE ARE IMPORTANT!

If you need to work under the microscope, you will need a large working distance.
SZO Series ensures an extended working distance of 110mm compared to the standard
100mm and 23mm FOV to ensure a wide peripheral view.

Keep in my mind your application, always: if you are soldering a printed circuit
board, it may be more important to have a long working distance; if you are counting
items, then a large field of view will be of great assistance.
