Most professional / research level stereomicroscopes require a separate illuminator for reflected light.  In general, we recommend dual arm fiberoptics for biological and research applications, and we recommend ring lights for industrial inspection so that the lighting is always the same.  We also have a couple of our own illumination products:  the PM-LED dual gooseneck illuminator that we put together ourselves, and the Cage-Light LED that we import from Europe.

Lumens:  It is hard to compare "apples to apples" with regard to light output from various illuminators by reading the specifications from various manufacturers.  So, we invested in a standard light meter to test the illumination of our products.  We conduct this test at a fixed distance of 10cm.  Click here for a quick reference chart sorted by lux.

    Fits microscope objectives up to 66mm with locking collet. 

    Martin test rating:  N/A – not measurable at 100mm distance since this …
