The MAGUS Metal D600 BD LCD Metallurgical Digital Microscope is designed for studying objects in reflected light using brightfield darkfield and polarization microscopy techniques. This microscope is used to examine metal and semiconductor samples as well as other flat and polished samples with high reflectivity. In transmitted light you can study translucent samples like thin films and particles trapped on filters. The microscope can be used in metallurgical and mechanical engineering industries in engineering and quality control laboratories as well as in technical universities.

Digital camera

MAGUS CHD40 is a digital HDMI camera with three video interfaces and automatic switching between 4K and Full HD depending on the monitor resolution. The camera is equipped with an 8MP sensor and produces realistic images in 4K resolution (3840x2160px) when connected via HDMI or USB3.0. When connected via Wi-Fi the image quality is Full HD (1920x1080px). The camera uses an HDMI interface to connect to a TV monitor or projector directly. In this mode the camera operates autonomously without a connection to a PC. The HDMI interface provides a high and stable transfer rate from the camera to the external screen. You can connect the camera to a PC via Wi-Fi or USB3.0. Video is recorded at 30fps. The camera combines high FPS and high bandwidth HDMI. Therefore videos are vivid with no freezes or gaps between frames. At maximum resolution the image is well-detailed moving objects are visible without bugs and object movement is displayed without delays.


The MAGUS MCD40 Monitor is designed to use a visualization system of the MAGUS microscope. It is connected to a camera mounted on the microscope to display real-time images. It supports MAGUS 4K HDMI cameras. The screen diagonal is 13.3 inches. The IPS matrix provides bright images with large viewing angles. If you look at the display at an angle the color reproduction is not distorted. The display can be placed on a folding stand on a table or shelf or mounted directly to the camera or microscope stand.


The trinocular head has a trinocular tube in which the digital camera is mounted. The beam splitter directs light to the camera there are two positions available: 100:0 and 0:100. The light beam goes all the way into either the eyepieces or the trinocular tube. Diopter adjustment ring is on the left eyepiece.

The magnification of the microscope in the basic configuration is 50–400x. Additional objectives and eyepieces will increase the range of magnification. The microscope uses plan achromatic objectives with long working distance for brightfield and darkfield microscopy techniques. There are five slots in the revolving nosepiece for mounting objectives – four objectives are included and one is optional. The revolving nosepiece with objectives is oriented toward the interior – the user can see the objective inserted into the optical path.


The illumination uses warm halogen lamps that do not cause eye fatigue even when working for long periods of time. The power of the transmitted light illuminator is 30W and the reflected light illuminator is 50W which ensures comfortable work using dark-field microscopy.

The reflected light illumination system contains: a darkfield device polarization device center-adjustable field and aperture diaphragms for Köhler illumination method and color filters. The light source can also be centered.

The transmitted light illumination system includes: a condenser with a flip-down lens for low magnification objectives and an aperture and field diaphragm for the Köhler method.

Stage and focusing mechanism

The specimen moves with the stage along two axes. The height of the examined sample should not exceed 20mm. To work with translucent samples the table has a transparent glass plate.

Focusing is adjusted by coaxial coarse and fine focusing knobs that are located on each side in the lower part of the microscope. This allows the observer to place their hands freely on the table rather than holding them in the air. The coarse focusing mechanism has a lock knob on the right side and tension adjustment on the left.
