Binocular models, the TC5100, TC5300 and TC5500, incorporate the MA814 Siedentopf-type binocular head while the trinocular models, the TC5200, TC5400 and TC5600 have the MA816/10 Siedentopf-type trinocular head. The MA816/10 uses an 80/20 beam splitter that can be engaged for photo-microscopy. (100% to eyetubes or 80% to phototube and 20% to the eyetube.) Each microscope head has the eyetubes inclined at 30 degrees with the left eyetube having graduated diopter settings. The interpupillary distance on the viewing heads is adjustable between 53mm – 75mm. An optional ergonomic binocular head is also available.
