Stereomicroscope System - SZ61/SZ51

Olympus has introduced the SZ51 and SZ61 microscopes that provide images with excellent depth of field, detail, true-to-life color, and clarity. These images also come with integrated ESD protection.

The reliable, high-performance optics of the microscopes are integral for generating precise, consistent results.

Compact Design Compatible with High Optical Performance

Greenough Optical System

The SZ51 and SZ61 microscopes have 5:1 and 6.7:1 zoom ratios (zoom range 0.8x to 4x and 0.67x to 4.5x), in that order. They are reasonably priced and still provide a maximum resolving power in this price range. The microscopes are available with either 60 or 45 inclination angles for observation.

Using the Greenough optical design, all zoom bodies integrate the newest distortion- and aberration-free optics that set a new benchmark in optical quality and, at the same time, maintain excellent operability.

The V-shape optical path guarantees a slim zoom body—which is perfect for stand-alone use or for incorporating in other equipment.

Three-Dimensional Viewing

The optimum inward angle of the microscopes provides the right combination of depth of focus and high level flatness for three-dimensional (3D) viewing. Even a specimen that has considerable depth can be brought into focus fully, that is, from top to bottom for more rapid inspection.

Observation Images with High-Color Fidelity

Thanks to excellent optical coatings, users can obtain true color images with fine detail.

ESD Measures for Protecting Devices from Static Electricity

The central unit and key accessories can rapidly remove static electricity with the use of antistatic coatings and materials. This prevents any electrostatic damage caused to a specimen being observed.

Microscope Bodies According to Users’ Application

The SZ51 and SZ61 microscopes are available as 60-degree or 45-degree oriented models that are well-suited for use with OEM integration or bench stands. The SZ61TR is a video/digital camera ready with an integrated c-mount. This c-mount is optically matched to the zoom body, ensuring parfocal, vivid images upon attaching a camera.
