Episcopic Illuminator

Episcopic Illuminator  

The episcopic illuminator provides a concentration of light through- the-lens (TTL) to illuminate the bottom and sides of component features, which would otherwise be difficult to view.

With an iris feature to allow focusing of the light, the episcopic Illuminator is ideal for the inspection of complex internal/external features, such as bores, pipes, tubes, slots, holes and connectors.

- Focusable, through the lens illumination.
- Available with 4x, 6x, 8x and 10x objectives (6x, 8x and 10x objectives require a spacer block).

Floating Stage

Floating Stage

Mantis Compact Floating Stage 400

Provides smooth and sensitive control allowing for samples to be accurately inspected. For use with bench stand only. Sensitive controls for steady manoeuvrability

Objective Lenses

Objective Lenses

2x, 4x, 6x, 6x SLWD (Super Long Working Distance), 8x, 10x, 15x and 20x objective lenses are available to suit different application requirements.

Mantis Elite-Cam HD houses two objectives in a quick rotate turret, so you can inspect at lower magnification, then switch to higher magnification for detail work.

With a 112mm working distance, the 6x SLWD objective is an ideal solution for precision applications requiring both inspection and detail tasks, such as hair restoration and dental laboratory work.

Disposable lens protection caps are available to protect your objective lens from damage when soldering, or in aggressive environments.

Secondary Link for Articulated Arm

Secondary Link for Articulated Arm

Keep the workspace clear. A secondary link increases total reach of the articulated arm to 800mm, for ultimate flexibility and manoeuvrability.




Choice of four stand configurations:

Improved Ergonomics = Increased Productivity + Profits

With no microscope eyepieces, operators benefit greatly from reduced fatigue and eyestrain. Not only does this benefit the operator but also the business.

Businesses choose Mantis because they know their operators are more efficient, more accurate and more productive. This translates to better quality of work, increase productivity and significant cost savings.
