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.
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.
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.
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.
