MAGUS Metal VD700 BD LCD is an inverted metallurgical digital microscope – the revolving nosepiece is located under the specimen and it uses reflected light for observations. Microscopy techniques available: brightfield darkfield and polarized light. The microscope is used for studying metals alloys semiconductors and other opaque specimens of large sizes up to 2kg. It is widely used in industrial facilities factories and quality control laboratories as well as in universities and research centers.

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.


You can install the microscope head in a standard way or rotate it 180° as provided by the design. There is an option to install a digital camera and monitor: A trinocular tube is located in the microscope head a side camera port one – on the body. The beam splitting is available for both: 80/20 for the microscope head as well as 100/0 and 0/100 for the body.

A revolving nosepiece for 5 objectives is located under the examined specimen. There are 4 slots for installing the included objectives and one more slot for installing an additional one. All objectives for this microscope are labeled BD i.e. they are specially designed for brightfield and darkfield microscopy and have a long working distance.


Light source: 50W halogen bulb. The warm lighting reduces eye strain and is ideal for long hours of working with the microscope. Thanks to the powerful illumination you will get a well-detailed sharp image using any microscopy techniques and any objective. The light source can be centered along three axes and the Köhler illumination can be adjusted by aperture and field diaphragms. The reflected light illumination system also includes a polarization device and a darkfield device.

Stage and focusing mechanism

Stage with a round rotating stage plate in the center. Depending on the intended use different plates can be used: They differ in the diameter of the hole – 10mm 20mm or 30mm. After placing the specimen on the stage it is secured with a holder. The specimen moves along with the stage in two directions: X-axis or Y-axis. Coarse (has a lock knob and tension adjustment) focusing and fine focusing are used for focus adjustment. Coaxial coarse and fine focusing knobs are located on both sides in such a way that you can place your hands on the table when using a microscope rather than keeping them in the air.


When you add additional accessories to the MAGUS Metal V700 BD microscope its capabilities expand. The accessories include eyepieces darkfield and brightfield objectives with long working distance digital cameras and calibration slides.
