MOTIC SMZ171 with ESD



With the new SMZ-171 Stereo Zoom microscope Motic  introduces an optically improved addition to its well established SMZ Stereo series. New materials for ESD compatibility as well as optimised LED illumination options have been added to this series to create a versatile Stereo microscope platform for a wide range of biological and material science applications.

The SMZ-171’s optical performance, combined with its expanded accessory line, make it an ideal instrument for the demanding requirements for both routine and research fields. From biological and medical preparations to industrial quality control and inspection, the SMZ-171 will deliver repeatedly clear and distortion-free images.

Switching from a macro overview down to micro details has never been easier than with the SMZ-171. One rotation of the zoom knob gives access to the complete magnification range. Five defined click-stop positions within the continuous zoom allow exact reproduction of magnifications, a necessary precondition for precise measurements by reticules or digital imaging tools.

The 6.7:1 zoom ratio in the SMZ-171 enables a standard magnification range of 7.5X-50X.

While zooming, re-adjustment of the focus position is not necessary—as the complete optical system is designed for parfocality through the complete zoom range. To increase the model´s magnification range a selection of auxiliary objectives and eyepieces are also available, extending the SMZ-171´s total magnification range  from 2.25X up to 200X.


With a standard working distance of 110mm, the SMZ-171 offers  sufficient space for sample manipulation through various magnifications.  Higher magnifications can be achieved by using auxiliary objectives, which follow ESD requirements.

The optical heads of Motic’s SMZ-171 come as Binocular or Trinocular versions with 45° viewing angle, 10X eyepieces and a built-in 1X objective.  The interlock eyepieces can be adjusted with an interpupillary distance from 48mm to 75mm. For special setups or OEM applications, a Binocular head with 60° viewing angle is available. The anti-fungus treatment of all optics allows the use of the SMZ-171 in humid environments.
