During episcopic/diascopic illumination, CFI60 infinity optics ensure superb vision. They also provide greater flexibility for system expansion. 

The ME600L is an episcopic/diascopic illumination-type industrial microscope that uses Nikon's acclaimed CFI60 infinity optics. These new optics provide the advantages of both CF and infinity optics, producing not only images with excellent sharpness but ensuring greater flexibility for adding various accessories when the need arises. So, this microscope can be used for various purposes, including observations of mineral samples, PCBs, LCDs, or film. 

CFI60 infinity optics

Designed to correct chromatic aberrations over the entire field of view, CFI60 objectives produce images that are extremely sharp, of high contrast, and have a minimum of flare. Furthermore, their 60mm parfocal distance and larger objective diameter provide both longer working distances and higher numerical apertures. Longer working distances are particularly useful when inspecting thick samples.
12V-100W epi-illuminator 

The ME600L can use the same 12V-100W epi-illuminator as that of the L150 series, ensuring bright images regardless of the observation technique you use. 
Diascopic illumination is possible

The microscope stand incorporates a built-in light source for diascopic illumination and an episcopic/diascopic changeover switch. The new oversize 6" x 4" stage* makes observations of PCBs, LCDs, and film much easier. *Under development 
Robust, yet flexible design 
image
Created through CAE, the microscope body can withstand the load of a full complement of accessories without causing any deterioration in image sharpness due to vibrations. The CFI60 infinity optical design allows one intermediate module--a double port or teaching head--to be used with the epi-illuminator without any compromise in optical performance. 
Strain-free, ergonomic design 

The focus knob and the stage handle are equidistant from the operator so that your hands rest comfortably on the desk in a more relaxed, natural posture. 
Moreover, the fine focus knob and the stage handle can be controlled with one hand. A refocusing mechanism is also provided.
One-handed operation  ME600L Conventional model 
With the ergonomic eyepiece tube, both the tilt angle and eyepiece length are adjustable. 

 
 
Key Features Include

         CFI60 Infinity Optics -- With a 60mm parfocal distance and larger objective diameter, Nikons CFI60 optics provide both longer working distances and higher numerical apertures. The results of this remarkable technology are extremely sharp, high contrast images with a minimum of flare

         Flexible Epi-Illuminator for Reflected Light -- The Universal Epi-Illuminator with 12V/100W halogen lamp ensures bright images whatever observation technique you use -- brightfield, darkfield, Nomarski DIC or qualitative polarizing observations. For applications requiring additional illumination, mercury, xenon and metal halide light source options are also available.

         Diascopic (Transmitted) Illumination -- For transparent and translucent materials, the microscope stand incorporates a built-in light source for diascopic illumination and an episcopic/diascopic changeover switch.

         Robust, Flexible Design -- Using CAE (Computer Aided Engineering), the microscope body has been made to withstand the weight of a full complement of accessories without any deterioration in image sharpness due to vibration.

         Ergonomic Design -- The focus knob and the stage handle are equidistant from the operator so that your rest comfortably on the desk in a more relaxed, natural posture. Also, the fine focus knob and the stage handle can be controlled with one hand.
