Luxo has come out with a new series of microscopes – the ESD-safe, 23mm System 273 Binocular Microscopes. They are designed for inspection and assembly use in ESD-sensitive environments, and their static dissipation is controlled by their ESD-safe lenses and body.
The lenses and eyepieces are protected with an anti-reflective coating that changes the electrical composition at the material’s surface. The body and the stand are coated with paint-laced metal. In addition, the surfaces are no longer insulated; therefore, triboelectric charging will produce lower voltages.
Here are a few more features of the Luxo ESD-safe, 23mm System 273 Binocular Microscopes:
- provides 270X total optical magnification
- 8” working distance and 15% greater field view (compared with Luxo System 250 models)
- smaller body giving you a greater workspace
- durable aluminum housing
- comes with 10X, 23mm widefield eyepieces and eyeshields
- rotates 360°
- zoom range of 0.7-4.5 (magnification range of 7X-45X)
- can be used with Luxo’s single boom stands or dual boom ball-bearing stands
Since 1937 Luxo has been a supplier of microscopes, task lighting, and illuminated magnifiers. All-Spec Industries is a proud carrier of Luxo ESD-safe microscopes as well as other Luxo products.

Jerry Blakely, President of Extech Instruments Corporation announced that Flir, a designer and manufacturer of thermal imaging and stabilized camera systems is purchasing Extech, one of All-Spec’s vendors, for $40 million.
This decision seems to make sense since the profitable Extech is a supplier of test and measurement equipment. Flir will be adding thermal imagers and Infrared cameras to Extech’s line of products. They have also been looking to break into the consumer market for handheld temperature-measurement devices for the cost benefits.
Flir’s products are mainly used for applications such as navigation safety, maritime and border patrol, search and rescue, and surveillance and reconnaissance. In addition to adding instruments to Extech’s product line, Flir will also get access to Extech’s catalog sellers so they can begin selling their lower-priced line of thermography items in the upcoming year. Extech also uses inexpensive manufacturing processes in Asia, and now Flir will now be able to take advantage of this.
All-Spec Industries carries a variety of Extech products including clamp meters, electrical testers, and digital multimeters.
