ZEISS SteREO Discovery V8 Technical Cleanliness Microscope

The ZEISS SteREO Discovery V8 is a common main objective stereo microscope with a magnification range from 1x-8x. This technical cleanliness microscope is used for particle size ≥ 15µm and recommended for analyses according to VDA 19.1. Identify fibers and differentiate between metallic shiny and non-shiny particles with this cost-effective system for standard cleanliness testing applications.

Selectable click-stops allow calibration of pixel sizes when using the ZEISS imaging software packages. Technical Cleanliness for components includes identifying metallic particles (machining chips, metal scraps and flakes) and non-metallic shiny particles (laquer, plastic, and abrasive residues), and fibers. Technical Cleanliness of Oil determines if the used oil is clean, what types of contaminants are in the oil, and where they are originating from. Technical Cleanliness for medical devices is required since syringes and implants must be produced in an extra clean production environment.

Viewing Head: Trinocular head with 20º inclined eyetubes. Interpupillary distance adjustment from 51mm - 75mm. Beam splitter takes 100% of light from the right eyetube to the photo port.
Detent: Manual focus drive with adjustable click stops.
Eyepieces: Includes widefield 10x/22 mm focusing eyepieces, accepts 26 mm reticle.
Micrometer: Includes a 1mm / 100 division stage micrometer. Each division = 0.01mm. Please notify us if NIST certification is required, and we can provide a quote for this.
Objective Lens:  Zoom range of 1x - 8x with a 1x Achromat Objective (WD = 63mm)
Zoom Ratio:  8:1
Total Magnification: 10x - 80x.
Specimen Stage: Motorized stage controlled by joystick. 3-plate mechanical stage (495...530)mm x (280...390)mm x (28...95)mm can accept up to 3 kg load. Specimen-bearing insert plate is 237 x 157mm. Has stepper motors, encoders, and an integrated controller with variable speed of up to 17 mm/s.  Reproducibility: ±1 µm. Accuracy: ±2 µm. Cable connection: BNC trigger and CAN-HD15. CAN-HD15 cable is included.
Stand: Stand for use with epi-illumination. Base of stand is 290mm W x 353mm D x 25mm H.
Camera: Axiocam 705 pol microscope camera has a Sony Exmor sensor with 5.07 megapixel (2464 x 2056) camera that is equipped with a polarization filter mask-enhanced sensor. Sensor size of 2/3" (diagonal 11 mm). 2x2 pixel polarization filter mask with transmission directions of 0º, 45º, 90º, or 135º. Pixel size 3.45µm x 3.45µm. Frame rate in frames per second (fps) is 25 at 5.07 megapixels. USB3.0 output. Includes c-mount adapter. Full camera specifications can be found here.
Computer and monitor: Includes a microscopy workstation with Windows 10 Enterprise operating system, graphics card,  and a 24" HD monitor.
Software: Includes ZEN core with ZEN Technical cleanliness module. The ZEN Technical cleanliness analysis software module can evaluate particulate contamination on prepared specimens. Unlike conventional analysis methods, metallic shiny particles are detected with only one filter scan, which dramatically speeds up not only cleanliness reporting but also the identification of contamination sources. The ZEN Toolkit motorized acquisition software is also included. This software allows for acquiring and z-stacking images using the motorized components. Learn more about the capabilities of ZEN core software here.
Focusing: Motorized focusing column is 490mm and has a lifting range of 340mm and a load capacity of 18kg.
Illumination:  60W LED cold light source for epi-illumination.
Size: 450mm (17.7") W x 433mm (17") D x 521mm (20.5") H, ~51 lbs.
Warranty: 1 year.
