Never fit other equipment connectors or dismantle optical systems

and mechanical parts unless the user manual gives express instructions for doing so.

The Leica S4 E, S6 E, S6, S6 T, S6 D and S8 APO stereomicroscopes are intended primarily for indoor use.

If used outdoors the stereomicroscope must be protected against dust and moisture. Leica Microsystems electric illuminators and stands must not be used outdoors.

The following must be observed when installing Leica products in third-party products:

The manufacturer of the basic system or the person putting the product into circulation is responsible for compliance with existing safety regulations, laws and directives.

The Leica S series can be used in clean rooms without any problems and they can be cleaned as described on page 35. Please observe the following rules:

Do not clean our stereomicroscopes and accessories in a different manner from that described in this user manual. Do not use unsuitable cleaning agents, chemicals and techniques. Do not clean painted surfaces and accessories with rubber parts with chemicals.

This can damage the surfaces. Particles or grindings can contaminate the specimen.

If the customer cleans our instruments with chemicals without our written approval he will do it at his own risk.

In most cases we can offer special solutions on request. Some products can be modified or we could recommend other accessories for use in clean rooms.

Repair work must only be carried out by service engineers trained by Leica Microsystems. Only original spare parts from Leica Microsystems are to be used.

Safety regulations

Workplaces with stereomicroscopes facilitate and improve the viewing task, but they also impose high demands on the eyes and holding muscles of the user. Dependent upon the duration of uninterrupted activity, this may lead to asthenic trouble and muscular-skeletal pain so that suitable measures must be taken to reduce the strain:

perfect design of workplace, work content and work process (frequently changing activities).

detailed introduction of the personnel while considering ergonomic and organizational work-related aspects.

The ergonomic optics concept and the design of the Leica S series aim at limiting the strain on the user to the lowest possible level.

Direct contact with eyepieces can be a potential transmission path for bacterial and viral infections of the eye. Users should be made aware of the potential risk of infection. The risk can be kept at a minimum by using individual eyepieces or attachable eyecups (see p. 17).

Electrically operated equipment

Liquids Handle liquids carefully.

Liquids spilt on the instrument

can cause the stereomicroscope and other equipment to become electrically live and injure persons,

can cause damage to the instrument.

Mains cable

Cable routing

Check regularly to ensure that the mains cable is undamaged and avoid jerking or pulling the cable hard. Faulty mains cables

can injure persons,

can cause the stereomicroscope and other equipment to become electrically live and injure persons.

Ensure the cable is not in a position where someone could accidentally catch it, otherwise the instrument could tip over and fall, damaging itself or other equipment, or injuring people nearby.

Opening the

instrument

Electrical equipment may only be repaired by authorized Leica personnel.

Disconnect the mains cable before opening the instrument. Touching the open instrument when voltage is

applied may result in injury.

Description

Greenough The optical system of the Leica StereoZoom® line con- optical system sists of two beam paths converging at 12°. Since the

pairs of objectives are very close together, the stereomicroscopes can be constructed very “slim” towards the base. This has a number of advantages: less space required for use on bonders and machines, unimpeded working on the object, plenty of room for tools, free view of the object field.

The Greenough system provides a low-cost solution for correcting aberrations such as chromatism, curvature of the field of view and distortion. On the new Leica StereoZoom® line the optimally corrected centre of the objective is used for the image. This results in excellent optical performance with large, flat, distortion-free fields of vision and high-contrast images with maximum chromatic correction.

Protection The Leica S4 E, S6 E, S6, S6 D and S8 APO stereomicro- against ESD scopes including cold-light source and stand are made of

antistatic material with a surface resistance of 2×1011 ohm/square and a discharge time from 1000V to 100V of under 2 seconds.

The Leica S6 T Terminator for problematical work areas and the T incident-light stand are made of antistatic material with a surface resistance of 102–106 ohm/square and a discharge time from 1000V to zero of under

0.1 seconds.

Photography The Leica StereoZoom® S6 D and S8 APO models are equipped with a built-in video/photo tube that allows for simple, quick setting up of digital, film and analog video cameras.

Leica StereoZoom User Manual

World first Leica StereoZoom® S8 APO is the first stereomicroscope on the market with completely apochromatic corrected Greenough system. Apochromatic optics corrects perfectly chromatic aberrations, eliminates interfering color fringes and renders even the finest details ultra sharp. Contrast, brilliance, sharpness, resolution, color fidelity and reproduction accuracy are unsurpassed. The advantage of apochromatic correction is best observed in objects that have fine, low-contrast structures such as large animal cells, cilia plants or metallic microelectronic structures.

Eyecups The eyepieces are supplied with detachable eyecups (see also p. 5).

If you do not wear spectacles and want the eyecups to fit snugly round your eyes:

Attach the eyecups to the eyepieces.

You wear spectacles for your work.

Fold the eyecups downwards.

The folded-down eyecups will

protect your spectacle lenses against scratching.

Setting working To focus the stereomicroscope, raise or lower it using the distance and focusing drive until the desired object segment is in

focusing focus, i.e. inside the objective’s working distance. The working distances of the various objectives are listed in the tables on pages 38–40.

You can operate the focusing drive with either your right or left hand.

Position the object under the objective.

Select the minimum magnification.

• You should select the minimum magnification because it is easier to find the desired object segment in a large field of vision.

Look into the eyepieces.

Focus the object by turning the pinion knob.

24

Leica StereoZoom User Manual

Tension adjustment Is the focusing drive too stiff/too loose or does the set-up slip down unassisted? You can tension the focusing drive to suit the weight of the set-up and your own needs:

Take one pinion knob in each hand and turn in opposing directions until the desired tension is reached.

Tilting the optics The optics carrier can be tilted carrier to a lateral sideways if the user wants to

position work from a lateral position:

Loosen the clamping bolt.

Tilt the optic carrier side- ways to the desired position.

Tighten the clamping bolt.

Zoom magnification All StereoZoom® models are equipped with a continuously changer adjustable magnification changer that can be operated

with either the right or left hand. The right-hand pinion knob carries a magnification scale. The ranges are:

0.63 to 3 on the S4 E and

0.63 to 4 on the S6 models

for S8 APO from 1 to 8

Changing The tables on pages 38 to 40 list the magnifications and magnification field diameters as a function of magnification changer

position and the eyepiece/objective combination being used.

Look into the eyepieces.

Bring the object into focus

(p.24)

Rotate the magnification changer until the desired magnification is achieved.

1. Set the minimum zoom level at 1 using the stop on the left-hand pinion knob:

Loosen the hexagon head screws on the left-hand pinion knob using the Allen key supplied.

Turn the right-hand pinion knob to 1.

1

Move the stop on the lefthand pinion knob forwards until it touches the built-in zoom stop.

Tighten the hexagon head screws.

26

Diopter adjustment If you adjust the diopters at the adjustable eyepiece as and setting described below, the focus will remain constant, or par- parfocality focal, from minimum to maximum magnification. In other

words, you will not have to refocus when you change magnification, but only when you want to examine a higheror lower-positioned object segment. Make full use of this feature, which is not available on every stereo microscope.

Diopter adjustment is possible within a range from +5 to –5.

Every user has to make the following adjustments only once.

If you are using a graticule, the diopter adjustment and parfocality setting procedure is slightly different to that described here. Please refer to the section on measurement in the graticule user manuals.

 

Setting up diopter with an adjustable and a fixed

 

eyepiece

Preparations

Diopter adjustment at the adjustable eyepiece

Checking parfocality

Without looking into the eyepieces, turn the eyelens of the adjustable eyepiece as far as possible in the “+” direction.

Close the eye that is looking into the fixed eyepiece and look into the adjustable eyepiece with the other eye.

View the test object and slowly turn the eyelens clockwise (the “–” direction) until the object is in focus.

Set the microscope to maximum magnification.

View the test object with both eyes and bring it into sharp focus with the focusing drive.

View the object while zooming from minimum to maximum magnification.

• The object should remain in constant focus (parfocal) at all times. If it does not, please repeat the procedure above.
