Leica A60 S and A60 F stereomicroscopes

Leica Microsystems A series stereomicroscopes have been developed to meet the requirements in production of printed circuit boards or medical products. The Leica A60 F and A60 S stereomicroscopes make products and components optimally visible, enable subassemblies to be processed easily and increase productivity.

For assembly and repair tasks, components often measure only a few millimetres, although the entire work piece is considerably larger. For that reason, the A60 has a magnification range from 5× to 30×, which permits detail observations as well as an overview of the specimen. With 46 mm, the A60 also provides a particularly large object field. Its FusionOptics technology provides a depth of field of 13.6 mm in the lowest zoom level, so time-consuming refocusing of higher components is no longer required.

With these values, the A60 achieves a field volume of 22.6 cm3. All parts of a specimen within the specified volume are displayed in sharp focus. Therefore a high field volume means that the user does not have to refocus or move the specimen as much. That makes the workflow shorter and easier, reduces the risk of errors and preserves the ability to concentrate. All of these factors lead to a substantial increase in productivity.

With the FusionOptics technology, the left beam path provides great depth of field, while the right beam path supplies an image with high resolution. The human brain then combines the best information from both channels to compose an image. The result is depth perception improved by 100% in comparison to the conventional optical concept.

The A60 stereomicroscope is equipped with a bright, uniform and daylight-like LED ring illuminator plus removable diffuser. The dimmable LED ring illuminator illuminates the finest details even on dark specimens and makes fault location on matte surfaces easier.

With its high degree of ESD dissipation, the antistatic plastic of the A60 housing helps to protect against damage caused by static electricity. Both the A60 S with swing arm and the A60 F with flex arm offer the greatest possible flexibility when using the microscope, as they are space-saving: if the microscope is not needed, it is simply swung to the side.
