Associated products

Turret microscope

PSM1000Turret microscope

Turret microscope for fine inspection and high magnifications.
The PSM1000 is useful for precision contact on very small surfaces.

- It can be used as a stand alone or mounted onto analytical probe station
- A range of accessories is available including a variety of objectives (NIR, NUV, polarizer, analyzer...)
- The trinocular head accepts a choice of digital cameras
- Spectroscopic applications available
Coaxial HF-Low-current probe

MW-SCA50Coaxial HF-Low-current probe

The coaxial Probe is designed for low-level signal probing (lower than 10fA@150°C)

- The probe's single unit design is especially desirable for the best possible electrical characteristics
- The Coaxial Probe is also offered with optional Ground Plane, Kelvin and resistor series /parallel configurations
- The Probes are constructed of microwave-quality components with a 50 Ohm semi-rigid cable shield being achieved through the utilisation a Teflon dielectric
- The probe contact protrudes from the shielding by .150" (3 mm) to maintain low-level signal noise to the probe
- Tips available (replaceable) from 0.5 µm to 20 µm
- The connector is a standard SSMC
Tungsten probe tip

PTG20Tungsten probe tip

General purpose probe tip sharpened at one extremity, the body material (tungsten) is strong enough to be bent into a variety of shapes.

- The standard application is probing on pads and/or internal lines
- Material tungsten, length 38 mm, tip radius from 0.5µm to 100µm
- Nickel-plated option is available for body only (easy soldering), please add the suffix ''N'' to the P/N
High precision micropositioner SP100

SP100High precision micropositioner SP100

High-precision micropositioner with inline controls knobs, the SP100 will allow easy landing on pads as well as internal lines within micron accuracy.

- The down Z movement of the tip is totally vertical.
- The knobs with micrometric graduations (100TPI) allow an optimal density on the platen.
- Pivot head (Quick down Z for pre-positioning then fine movement) or Standard head with Z knob.
Mono zoom microscope

MS12ZMono zoom microscope

This microscope is composed by a single objective and an internal zoom.
It allows a wide range of magnification without turret disadvantage for probing application.

- Light and compact
- Large working distance WD (ideal for high frequencies measurements applications)
- C-mount for camera
- High brightness (LED optical fiber)
