ZEISS Axio Zoom V16 Technical Cleanliness Microscope

The ZEISS Axio Zoom V16 Technical cleanliness microscope is a zoom microscope that delivers high resolution and a zoom range of 16x. This microscope can be used to identify contamination based on quantity, size, shape, and composition of particles. The ZEISS Axio Zoom V16 is used for particle size ≥ 5µm and recommended for extended analyses according to VDA 19.1

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 devises is required since syringes and implants must be produced in an extra clean production environment.

Microscope Features: 

  • 16x zoom with a high numerical aperture (NA = 0.25) and large working distance (30 mm).
  • eZoom works with a motorized iris diaphragm coupled to the zoom.
    • Camera Mode: The Axio Zoom V16 adapts to the performance of your camera, providing an optimal relation between resolution and depth of field across the entire zoom range. (This microscope does not include eyepieces.)
  • EpiRel Produces Relief-Like Image Contrast: Slightly incline the illumination with the EpiRel slider in the Epi-Illuminator Z of the Axio Zoom V16 to discover textures and small ridges, particularly at high magnification. Objects will take on more contour than in conventional brightfield mode.
  • Precision: When zooming a stereo microscope, lenses have to be positioned precisely. Until now, a metal component milled with great care would determine the exactness of this movement, and with it the optical quality of the microscope. eZoom replaces the mechanical curve with an electronic one. Stepping motors position the moveable lenses precisely and take the tolerances of the individual lenses into account. Each zoom body describes its own zoom curve and captures visibly more details. eZoom follows the base line for image sharpness over the magnification range with a doubled precision, compared to a mechanical zoom body. Program zoom curves individually.
  • Objective Lens: PlanApo Z 1.5x, FWD = 30mm
  • Micrometer: Includes a stage micrometer (KR-851). 1mm stage micrometer with 100 divisions. Each division = 0.01mm. If you require NIST certification please contact us for a quote.
  • Stand: Track stand with motorized focus column 490mm high, with lifting range of 340mm. Base of stand is 290mm W x 353mm D x 25mm H and includes 120mm diameter black / white contrast plate.
  • Stage: Includes Motorized X-Y Mechanical Stage with travel range of 150mm x 100mm X-Y. Includes metal insert plate for stage. Motorized mechanical stage includes joystick controller.
  • Technical Cleanliness Items: Includes mounting frame for 2 Technical Cleanliness membranes, along with one holder for 47mm diameter TCA membrane.
  • Illumination: Includes 60w LED cold light source with polarizing ring illuminator.
  • 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. Includes rotating 0.63x c-mount adapter.
  • Computer and monitor: Includes a microscopy workstation with 8GB graphics card, Windows 10 Enterprise operating system, and a 24" HD monitor.
  • Software: Includes ZEN Core with ZEN Toolkit Motorized Acquisition to acquire tiles and z-stack images using motorized components. Includes 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.
  • Size & Weight: 23.4" W x 24.1" H (without camera) x 17.3" D, 74 lb.
  • Warranty:  1 year.
  • Includes: Dust cover.
