Benefit of Motorized vs Manual Microscope Frame:
(Applicable to upright frames)

The motorized microscope is fully loaded to give optimal functionality and ease of usage to the microscopist. If you compare a manual vs motorized, you will see a lot of benefit. It takes some effort to get the motorized components all set up and programmed to what you need. But once that is done, you will benefit from it each time you use it. This is especially useful if you spend a lot of time working under the microscope.

The best example is the ability to preset the light. Each objective requires different light intensities. These can be programmed.
A 4x objective needs to have neutral density filters to prevent it from scorching your eyes with the intense light, after you have been viewing the 100x objective. And when you turn to the 100x, you need more light and less ND filters.

The Light Manager will allow you to make all those settings for each objective. The motors will turn the luminous field diaphragm, light intensity, and the various ND filters each time you rotate the objective turret.

Condenser settings can also be programmed for each objective. For example, you need the 40x phase annulus engaged when viewing the 40x phase objective. The condenser can automatically rotate to the right setting.

For oil immersion objectives, the frame can be programmed to lower for you to add the oil.

Have you ever scratched up an expensive objective by rotating the nosepiece and hitting the stage? The motorized stage will automatically lower as the objective nosepiece is being rotated. Then, the stage will go back to the same parfocal distance that it was at.

Want to change the specimen slide or change the objective? You press the Load button and the stage lowers to allow the slide to be replaced. You press the Work button and the stage goes precisely back to where it was.

The motorized dazzle protection also helps you from being blasted with too much light. It eases the light intensity to normal, giving you time to adjust your eyes, or close them. The alternative is an instantaneous flash of light if your settings aren’t quite right.
