Description

Summary

The Motic AE31 Elite is purpose-built for routine laboratory or clinical work, as well as research requirements in Pharmaceutical Laboratories or Universities and delivers the sharp brightfield and phase contrast performance these applications depend on. Key upgrades from the AE2000 include bigger eyepieces, a quintuple nosepiece and two full Plan Phase objectives as standard. The proven CCIS Infinity Optical System includes one Plan objective (PL4X) and two Plan Phase objectives (PH10x and PH20x) mounted in a left-side-oriented quintuple nosepiece.

They combine with two WF Plan 10X/22mm eyepieces for magnification powers of 40x, 100x and 200x, and a configuration also including the Plan PH40X objective is optionally available. In addition, uniquely integrated features include auto-power-cutoff and conventional 45-degree viewing tubes. Standard 6V30W Halogen illumination can be field-converted to 3W LED, adding to a versatile and highly capable observation platform.

Optics

The Siedentopf head is inclined at a comfortable 45° and offers butterfly-movement interpupilliary adjustment from 55mm to 75mm and the eyepieces include dual +/- 5 diopter adjustment to minimize eye strain and fatigue. The standard high eye-point WF PL10X eyepieces will accept optional plain or graduated cross hair reticles. The Plan PH10X and PH20X Achromatic objectives feature proprietary multi-layer coating for improved light transmission, yielding significantly brighter and sharper images. They are housed in a liquid-proof, left-side-oriented, bearing-supported quintuple nosepiece. A configuration including the PH40X is optionally available.

Stage & Focus

The plain stage measures 200mm x 260mm and includes a replaceable glass insert with 45mm opening, along with a metal insert with a contoured cutout to provide clearance for the objectives. A mechanical stage and a variety of specimen holders are optionally available. Coaxial coarse/fine focus controls offer 10mm of Z-axis movement and include adjustable tension control and ergonomic placement for ease of operation during use.

Condenser & Illumination

The N.A 0.30 condenser features an extra long working distance of 72mm and three-ring phase slide set. For additional viewing flexibility the lower portion can be removed from its dovetail mount, increasing working distance to 184mm. A centering telescope and intensity-controllable 6V30W Halogen bulb combine to produce bright, evenly-illuminated images.

For heat-sensitive applications, the AE31 Elite can easily be field-converted to 3W LED by replacing the Halogen bulb with an optional LED module. For added safety the AE31 Elite also features power-smart technology which uses an IR motion sensor to enable "sleep mode" after 15 minutes of inactivity. Normal power is restored upon the users return.

Accessories

45mm Blue, Green Interference and Diffusion filters with filter slide, Allen hex key, Manual, vinyl dust cover, universal power supply 100V-240V.
