The PEAK Stand Microscopes are small size, lightweight and conveniently
portable microscopes. They are designed to cover the range in between the high
quality and costly microscopes and the various low cost magnifiers (e.g. 3X
to 30X) that are also offered via SPI Supplies®. Without any real effort,
the PEAK® Stand Microscope can capture information on the subject to be examined.
And now it can be purchased with an optional light source, giving it a capability not normally
found on microscopes in this price range.
One of the finest features of the microscope line is the precision-made focusing
ring, which simplifies operation and the freely attachable/detachable black
colored rubber eyepiece increases the ease of operation. The freely
attachable/detachable black colored rubber eyepiece adds yet another element of convenience.
By reading the scale engraved on the focusing ring and the main needle of
the lens barrel, depths can be measured with the accuracy of 0.1 mm. The microscopes are
convenient for measuring the thickness or height of the surface being examined including
step heights. These microscopes are widely used in the printing industry
for examining a printed surface or even in the examination of printing plates.
The scale is built into the scale chamber about the focusing ring. The "standard" scale is what comes
"standard" with the microscope. While other scales are possible, it is necessary to purchase a reasonably
large number of units, for example in excess of 50 pieces.
The lens barrel of the eyepiece is the visibility adjustment ring. First turn this ring and set it at the
position where the scale can be seen clearly. Then turn the focusing ring and start observations.
The Stand Microscope is ideal for use in a wide variety of different industrial and academic settings.
The optional PEAK light holder has been designed for use with the PEAK Stand Microscopes. It greatly
extends the useful range of applications since it can now be used in locations where there would otherwise
be insufficient light available. The holder comes as two pieces, a black plastic collar piece that fits
around any of the four PEAK stand microscopes plus the pen light style light source for illumination.
Size: 41.5 mm diameter x 122 mm height
The "kit" consists of the black collar plus a pen-light style light source which takes two Type
AAA batteries (not included). Spare and replacement parts are always available.
We would advise purchasing at least several replacement bulbs since if ordered alone at a later date, there might be
some inconvenience with our minimum order requirement.
