Peak 2054

The 2054 series microscopes differ from the 2034 series in that they have an aluminium base and a modified focussing mechanism. Focussing is accomplished by moving the tube axially with a rack-and-pinion drive. With coatings of surface of lenses, you get sharp and contrasty images.

The microscopes of the 2054 series are available in 2 versions :
  • 2054-xx : the short optical path gives a picture reversed according to the horizontal axis of the object observed.
  • 2054-EIM-20 : the image of the object to be measured is not reversed. An additional prism reverses the light beam inside the microscope. This upright image of the inspection point facilitates finding flaws.

Seven types of lenses are available: 2x, 4x, 6x, 10x, 15x, 20x and 30x. The ocular has a magnification factor of 10x and the focal plane is equipped with a scale. Contamination of the scale with dust is not possible thanks to the Huygens design with focal plane in the lens system. The lens closest to the eye in the ocular can be moved by turning the adjustment ring, so that the scale can be adjusted to match the eye correction of the observer. The oculars associated with each magnification factor (object lens) can be replaced by simply pulling out. If additional lenses are to be used for visually checking purposes only, additional oculars are not required. The side illumination allows measurements on dark surfaces or in darkened rooms. Two 1.5 Volt AA batteries are required for operation.

The microscope is supplied in a padded transport box offering secure transport space for four additional lenses available as accessories. Use of the MKH tripod gives the 2034 series microscopes greater stability. This is an essential accessory for reliably checking rollers. When used with the IZoom, the stand is also useful.

For Brinell hardness measurement there is a new eyepiece with a division of 0.05 mm and 6 mm measuring length, which will run from left to right from 0.

An eight megapixel, miniature USB camera with integrated lens and autofocus feature can be attached simply to the ocular with the aid of an adapter. This allows images to be saved quickly on a laptop or PC. It is possible to use either the original camera driver software (in English only) or combine the system with the Metric BE (image visualisation and storage), which offers significantly more convenient operation. The quality of the images obtained with this high end industrial camera is impressive.
