STI Electronics Features LUXO'S New 23 mm Microscopes

Jan 19, 2009

MADISON, AL � January 2009 � STI Electronics, Inc., a full service organization providing training, distribution, consulting, laboratory analysis, prototyping, and small- to medium-volume PCB assembly, announces that it now features LUXO'S new 23mm Microscopes.

LUXO has extended its industry-leading microscope line to include a new range of 23 mm-based systems. The new System 273 Binocular and System 373 Trinocular microscopes offer 25 percent greater magnification, 15 percent greater field of view and 20 percent greater working distance than traditional models. LUXO's traditional System 250 Binocular and System 350 Trinocular Microscopes provide an optical magnification of 225X while new System 273 and System 373 microscopes provide a total optical magnification of 270X. Similarly, while LUXO's traditional System 350 Trinocular microscopes provide a digital magnification of 255X, new System 373 microscopes provide a digital magnification of 400X.

Magnification of both System 273 and System 373 models can be further increased with the use of eyepieces and accessory lenses. Field of view is increased when viewed through the eyepieces of the System 273 and System 373 microscopes. In contrast to the traditional System 250 and System 350 microscopes, Luxo's 23 mm line offers a 15 percent greater viewing area.

The smaller, sleeker bodies of System 273 and System 373 microscopes occupy a lesser footprint on the worksurface. Working distance is 2" greater than that of traditional Binocular and Trinocular scopes when used with a 0.5X reducing lens. This increased working distance not only provides additional space for operator maneuverability, but also decreases the chance that products may become damaged during inspection.

System 273 and System 373 microscopes have heavy-duty aluminum housings and come standard with 10X, 23 mm widefield eyepieces and eyeshields. The microscopes rotate 360� in their focus mounts. Both Binocular and Trinocular models have a zoom range of 0.7 to

4.5, giving them a magnification range of 7X to 45X. The zoom ratio of 7:1 is adjusted via dual graduated control knobs located on the side of the head. System 273 and System 373 microscopes can be used with LUXO single boom stands or dual boom ball-bearing stands.
