COX Coaxial Vertical Illuminator

Coaxial vertical illuminator, 6V/30W halogen, without transformer (For RZ series)

Requires MA762 1/4 wave plate in mount for RZ plan objective)
When used with MA740 (plan objective 0.5X, W.D. 164mm) it will work best between zoom range of 2.5X – 7.5X, not recommended between 0.75X – 2.5X or with MA741 (plan objective 0.75X, W.D. 101mm) will work best between zoom range of 1.5X – 7.5X, not recommended between 0.75X – 1X due to insignificant lighting.

The RZ Series is a modular stereo microscope, which means you can build a system to meet your needs and your budget. The heart of the system is the RZ-B zoom stereo body with a double iris diaphragm and a 1:10 zoom range.

The RZ Series is a parallel optical system design which allows for quick change and easy introduction of intermediate optical components such as an independent beam-splitter, coaxial illuminator, drawing tube, video or photo attachment.

Engineered around a Common Main Objective (CMO) and parallel optical paths, the RZ Series offers crisp, distortion-free, high-resolution images at magnifications ranging from 3.75X to 300X.

Featuring a 10:1 zoom ratio, built-in variable double-iris diaphragms, and positive détente click stops at 12 positions of magnification. Two perpendicular columns of eight zoom lenses in four groups move in a smooth continuous motion by rotation of the ergonomically sized and positioned zoom control. A magnification indicator is conveniently located on the zoom control. The RZ Series is also coated with a special anti-static finish, which is especially useful when working with sensitive electronic components.

Ergonomic and standard heads are available. The ergonomic head features low positioned eyetubes and is adjustable vertically from 10° to 50° for comfortable, fatigue-free viewing. Interpupillary distance is adjustable from 52mm to 75mm. The standard economical binocular head is inclined at 45° with an interpupillary adjustment ranging from 46mm to 75mm.

Distortion-free, ultra widefield eyepieces with dioptric adjustment are available in several powers of magnification and are provided with reticle mounts for measurement and photomicrography.

A coaxial coarse and fine focus mechanism with a 50mm focusing range is provided for ultra-smooth and precise focus control.
