Benefits & features


nikon metrology industrial microscopes upright nosepiece Eclipse CiPOLNosepiece uses the same DIN standard compensator slot design as the LV100N POL to accept various compensators for advanced quantitative measurements. All five objectives are centerable.

Diascopic/Episcopic illumination type

Both diascopic and episcopic polarizing observation are possible by mounting the LV-UEPI-N universal epi-illuminator. The epi-illuminator uses the high-intensity 50W lamp as standard which provides brighter illumination than a conventional 100W lamp. A noise-terminator mechanism is employed to provide sharp images with high S/N ratios.

CFI60 Optical System

The industry-acclaimed infinity optics - the CFI60 system - successfully deliver long working distances and high NA and produce tack-sharp aberration-free images. They employ an eco-glass that is manufactured with no harmful substances such as lead and arsenic. The episcopic objectives are from the newly developed CFI60-2 series and produce pin-sharp aberration-free images regardless of magnification.

  • Focus stroke has been improved to 30mm, facilitating observation of tall samples.
  • Clamp-type upper limit focusing mechanism makes for easy and safe sample exchange.
  • Excellent cost effective and precision manufacturing is balanced with superb basic performance in a standard level polarizing microscope.
