The beamsplitter allows the light path to be split allowing a video camera, digital camera, or an assistant head to be attached to the microscope. The most common beamsplitter used is a 50-50 / 20-80, which means one side splits the light into 50% to the user’s eye and 50% to the digital camera. The 20-80 is 20% to the camera and 80% to the user’s eye.
Live Video and Digital Cameras
Seiler offers a standard 1 chip color CCD live video camera option for teaching purposes or patient viewing. The CCD camera can be equipped on any Seiler Microscope or Colposcope. In addition to the live video camera, Seiler offers a complete Image Capture System which allows the user to take snapshots, record video, annotate and save under individual patient files.
Seiler's unique counterbalance system allows the user to add additional accessories such as video and digital imaging while keeping the optic pod perfectly balanced at all times. This allows the user to rotate the optic pod in a nice smooth movement without having to tighten any additional knobs to compensate the additional weight of the accessory. This is a standard feature on all of Seiler's surgical microscopes.
Extender and Rotation Device
The Extender and Rotation Device allows the user to change the direction of the optic pod of the microscope while keeping the binocular head in a fixed position. This allows the user to pan left and right to view different quadrants of the mouth without changing their ergonomic positioning.
Objective Lenses - Protective Lens Cover
Seiler operating scopes come with a standard objective configuration generally 250mm or 300mm. Other objective lengths are available from 175-400mm, which can be interchanged on the scope before it is sent to the customer. (50mm=2inches) 250mm gives the user about a 10 inch working distance. 300mm= 12inches, 350mm= 14inches and so on.
Fiber Optic Cables
Seiler uses Fiber Optic Illumination in all of their surgical microscopes. There are several different lengths of Fiber Optic Cables available for the Seiler Surgical Microscope product lines. Every scope comes with a standard length fiber optic cable at 1.7 meters. 1.3 and 2.1 meters are also available.
