Feldkirchen Germany, February 04, 2014 – The mag.x system 125 inspection
system stands out due to its exceptional image quality covering large fields-ofview. Its high numerical aperture (NA), the low overall magnifications and the
large image circle make the mag.x system 125 ideal for use with high-resolution
and large-format detectors in critical biomedical imaging and industrial
inspection applications.
High optical quality is not only ensured on the
optical axis, but is also maintained over the
entire sensor format. With the Tube Lens 2.25x,
sensor formats up to 56 mm are supported.
Thanks to long working distances and correction
of the lenses without cover glasses, this system
can be universally employed. Exact object-side
telecentricity is precisely maintained, preventing
distortion of measurement results due to threedimensional objects or variation of the object
The high quality of the image can be fully exploited only if the object
illumination is optimally adapted. This is why the mag.x system 125 has a builtin coupled illumination beam bath (vertical illuminator) for bright-field
reflected light illumination. The lighting system operates on the Köhler
principle, with adjustable aperture and field stops. Thus the lighting and
coherence parameters of the image (relationship of illumination and imaging

aperture) can be optimally adjusted to individual inspection tasks. Furthermore,
the pupil can be adjusted to the particular lens used, ensuring the
optimum telecentric illumination for any lens.
