For Nikon Microscopes
ROCKLAND, Mass., Dec. 17, 2009 – The NIKRFK focus drive with integral electronic clutch is now available from Prior Scientific Inc. Designed for the Nikon Ti, 80i and FN1 microscopes, the focus drive offers resolution and repeatability under software control.

PriorScientific_NIKRFKdrive.jpgThe electronic clutch can be disengaged with the push of a button to offer users smooth operation when utilizing the microscope’s manual focus knob. An optional focus encoder kit provides accuracy with a 50-nm resolution probe style encoder. The kit includes a controller, focus drive mechanism, cables and power supply.

Available push button functions on the device include engage and disengage clutches, go to zero, set zero, change speed, and buttons to move up or down.

It delivers a repeatability of 100 nm with an encoder, features a resolution programmable to 10 nm and offers a speed of 320 µm/s.

GLOSSARY
focus
1. The focal point. 2. To adjust the eyepiece or objective of a telescope so that the image is clearly seen by the observer. 3. To adjust the camera lens, plate, or film holder so that the image is rendered distinct. 4. To move an entire microscope body tube relative to a specimen to obtain the sharpest possible image.
photonics
The technology of generating and harnessing light and other forms of radiant energy whose quantum unit is the photon. The science includes light emission, transmission, deflection, amplification and detection by optical components and instruments, lasers and other light sources, fiber optics, electro-optical instrumentation, related hardware and electronics, and sophisticated systems. The range of applications of photonics extends from energy generation to detection to communications and...
repeatability
The degree to which a predetermined or previous setting of a positioning device can be duplicated by observance of the optical phenomena.
resolution
1. In optics, the ability of a lens system to reproduce the points, lines and surfaces in an object as separate entities in the image. 2. The minimum adjustment increment effectively achievable by a positioning mechanism. 3. In image processing, the accuracy with which brightness, spatial parameters and frame rate are divided into discrete levels.
