Motion Stage Mounting

Throat Depth
 A microscopes throat depth limits the size of stage that can be used. As a general rule, the distance D must be at least one inch greater than the Y-axis travel of the stage. Sometimes small stages cannot be used because the mounting bracket is wider than the stages bottom plate.

Working Distance
The working distance W of a microscope must be large enough to accommodate the stage thickness and any accessories, plus the specimen thickness, plus the objective lens focal distance.

    Footnotes in [ ] brackets indicate the following:
    Accepts stage size: [1] 4x4, [2] 6x4, [3] 6x6, [4] 8x8, [5] 10x10, [6] 12x12 
    [A] Stage requires long knobs.
    [B] For X-Y stages with paddles and for disk stages.
    [C] For X-Y stages without paddles -- plain top. No disk stages.
    [D] For reflected light stages only.
    [E] For transmitted light stages.
    [F] Stage requires short knobs.
    [G] For biotech stages only (except SBS series)  

Add suffix part# to stage part# when ordering.  Stages ordered without suffix will have Semprex standard D102 hole pattern in bottom plate.
