New Luxo ESD-Safe Microscopes Review

by Andy on November 20, 2007

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.
