SAFETY MECHANISM
The SO-5800 is fitted with a safety stop mechanism that enables the user to preset a particular height below which the pantograph arm will not move. Where
the knob position is set closest to the horizontal arm end, there is no impediment
to movement. When the knob is locked closest to the microscope head end,
there will be almost no movement allowed in the pantograph arm below its rest
(UP) position. Locations in between will allow a limited rage of movement.
Note that the knob MUST be locked in position for the safety mechanism to
take effect.

X-Y UNIT
The X-Y unit is positioned below the rotating joint at the end of the pantograph
arm. This unit allows the user to move the microscope head laterally, by means
of the joystick on the foot control. To move the head to the right, simply move
the joystick to the right, to move the head forward, move the joystick forward,
and so on. Movement combinations may also be achieved by moving the
joystick diagonally. Speed of X-Y movement is controlled using the knob on
the main power supply panel.
The X-Y unit also acts as an interface for distributing power to the microscope
head and video camera as well as the X-Y unit itself. These connections are
labelled on the rear panel of the X-Y unit. All voltages in this region are

A return to centre (RTC) function built in to the X-Y unit allows the user to
return the microscope head to a home position, centred on the middle of the
range of movement. To activate this function, move a hand or object close to
the small circular window on the front panel of the X-Y unit. The RTC function
will activate after approximately two seconds, to prevent accidental activation.
The LED above the window will flash intermittently while the unit is returning
to centre. This LED will also provide a continuous light when the joystick on
the foot control is used to drive the head in normal fashion.
X-Y UNIT FRONT PANEL
LED
SENSOR WINDOW
The return to centre function is activated when light is blocked from entering
through the sensor window by the user’s hand or another object. The sensitivity
of this detector may be adjusted by rotating the knob on the rear panel of the XY unit. The ideal setting is such that the user need not touch the window but the
sensitivity is not so fine as to cause nuisance activation. This sensitivity may
need adjustment if the ambient lighting conditions where the microscope is used
have changed. If the microscope is used in darkened conditions, it is
recommended that the RTC function is turned off by adjusting the
sensitivity, to prevent accidental engagement. The sensitivity knob itself
may then be used to return the microscope to centre. Note that on some
model SO-5800 microscopes this sensitivity is adjusted by inserting a Philips
head screwdriver through a hole in the upper housing of the X-Y unit. In this
case the screwdriver engages in a trim pot which may be rotated, otherwise the
effect is identical.

POWER SYSTEM
Power to the head is delivered from the X-Y unit in to a connector block, which
distributes power to the various systems. All power in this region is < 15Vdc.
The lamp power cable connects the lamp housing to the connector block and
provides voltage for the halogen lamp and its cooling fan. Power is also
provided to the zoom drive motor and internally to the focus drive motor.
LIGHTING SYSTEM
A lamp housing provides a means for mounting a 50W halogen lamp, which
delivers light to the viewing field through a series of lenses, filters and a prism.
The lamp is supplied fixed in a holder, which is then mounted in a module – this
ensures that the amount of light delivered is maximised. The cooling fan
enables the lamp to be run at maximum intensity if desired without heating the
housing to extreme levels. The prism is positioned to optimise red reflex – this
means that the prism tip may be visible when the viewing field is maximised,
that is at the lowest magnification settings.

FOCUS MECHANISM
A geared dc motor provides the means for driving the head assembly up and
down for focussing via foot control. The motor is located inside the focus drive
cover. Focus speed may be adjusted by rotating the knob on the main power
supply panel. The manual knob located on the left side may be used instead of
the foot control, if this is a preference of the user or in the event of a power
failure. In this case the manual knob will simply drive the motor. When using
the manual focus knob, do not attempt to drive the focus using the foot control –
this will strip the drive gears. The range of focus movement is approximately
45 millimetres. A visual guide to the centre of the focus range is provided in
the form of black dots marked on the side of the focus mechanism. When the
dots are aligned, the focus system is set to the centre of the range.
ZOOM MECHANISM
The zoom mechanism can also be driven by foot control or by using the manual
zoom knob on the left side of the microscope head. A geared dc motor located
inside the zoom cover provides the means for foot controlled zooming. When
using the manual zoom, the manual knob will simply drive the motor. Do not
attempt to drive the zoom simultaneously using the foot control and the manual
knob. This will strip the drive gears. When the standard 0.62x objective lens is
used with this microscope, the range of magnification controlled by the zoom
mechanism is between 4x and 25x.
VIEWING SYSTEM
The optical head provides the means for viewing the subject matter under
magnification. There are adjustments available to suit the user in order to
achieve the clearest image in the most comfortable circumstances. The
pupillary distance (PD) may be adjusted manually by sliding one eyepiece
sideways – the other eyepiece will move simultaneously in the opposite
direction. On microscopes fitted with the optional PD adjuster, this is achieved
by rotating the knob that protrudes to the side of the eyepieces.
The adjustable eyepiece may be used to compensate for any refractive error
difference between the left and right eye of the user. First, rotate the adjustable
(left) eyepiece so that the scale is set to zero. Then focus the microscope while
closing the left eye and looking only through the right eyepiece. When the
microscope is focussed, close the right eye and look with the left eye through
the left eyepiece, and rotate the adjusting ring until the left eye is focussed.
Rubber eyepiece shields are provided to help the user view through the
eyepieces without being disturbed by ambient light. These shields are easily
removed or added by hand, and can be reversed to provide an aid to spectacle
wearers.

Eyepiece caps are provided to protect dust entering the eyepiece tubes when the
microscope is not in use. Simply remove the eyepieces and replace them in
their protective wrapping, and insert the eyepiece caps in their place.
The working distance is fixed at 180 millimetres, where the standard 0.62x
objective is supplied. The working distance can only be adjusted by swapping
the objective lens to that of another magnification.

TILT ADJUSTMENT
The entire head assembly may be tilted some five degrees forward or up to forty
five degrees back by rotating the tilt adjustment knob located beneath the
suspension bracket. This can be of some assistance to users of a shorter stature
who wish to use the microscope while seated.
Note that on some models, the tilt knob is located in front of the bottom end of
the suspension bracket, and not below it.
HANDLES
The SO-5800 is provided with two side handles and a front guide handle which
enable the user to manoeuvre the microscope into position, within the
limitations of the settings of the various locking knobs. The front guide handle
may be removed if desired by unscrewing the socket head cap screw that fixes it
to the front of the microscope head mounting bracket. The side handles may be
removed first by removing the locking pins then sliding the handles out. It is
necessary to remove one side handle if the assistant microscope is to be
mounted on the side of the microscope head assembly.
Note that sterilisable covers are provided which fit the side/guide handles, as
well as covers for the manual zoom and focus knobs, and the PD adjuster knob,
if fitted. This enables the user to use the microscope in a surgical environment,
if the covers are sterilised correctly.

The adjustable eyepiece may be used to compensate for any refractive error
difference between the left and right eye of the user. First, rotate the adjustable
(left) eyepiece so that there are equal amounts of adjustment on either side.
Then focus the microscope while closing the left eye and looking only through
the right eyepiece. When the microscope is focussed, close the right eye and
look with the left eye through the left eyepiece, and rotate the adjusting ring
until the left eye is focussed.

When the microscope is fitted to the side of the main microscope head, a tilt
angle of approximately 30 degrees will enable the visual field of the assistant
microscope to match that of the main microscope head. To adjust this angle,
loosen the angle lock knob while holding the microscope head, tilt the head to
the appropriate angle and lock it again. Small sideways adjustments of the
visual field can be achieved by loosening the microscope lock knob and rotating
the microscope head about its mounting axis. When the fields are aligned
correctly, tighten the microscope lock knob once again.
The assistant microscope may be configured to mount on either the left or right
side of the main microscope head. The first diagram shows the head configured
to fit on the right hand side of the microscope head. In order to swap the
mounting configuration follow the diagrams shown.

ROUTINE MAINTENANCE
LAMP REPLACEMENT
In the event of lamp failure, the lamp may be replaced quickly and easily by
removing the entire lamp module from the side of the lamp housing, and
replacing it with the spare which is located behind the lower suspension bracket
clamp.
After the replacement has been made, the lamp module that has been replaced
should be left to cool before replacing the actual lamp. Allow at least ten
minutes for this to occur, and if possible use protective cotton gloves for the
procedure.
After the lamp has been replaced, the lamp module should then be replaced as a
new quick-change spare, in the holder behind the lower suspension bracket
clamp.

CHANGING THE MOULD PROTECTION PELLET
The Scan Optics SO-5800 microscope is fitted with mould protection which
lasts for approximately 3 years, but will be dependent on the storage conditions
and humidity of the local environment. In extreme tropical climates it may be
necessary to change the mould protection as frequently as every year.
A guide to when the mould protection should be changed is placed on a sticker
on the front of the microscope head. However this is indicative only and users
should be guided by their own experience and knowledge of local conditions.
As a general precaution, always store the microscope head in a protective bag
when not in use, and replace the eyepieces with the protective eyepiece caps.
To replace the mould protection pellet, first disconnect the zoom power cable
and remove the zoom drive cover located on the right side of the microscope
head. This will expose a large Philips headed screw which fixes the zoom drive
assembly to the microscope mounting bracket, by means of a cylindrical spacer
located behind the zoom drive plate. Loosen this screw and the grubscrew
located directly opposite, on the left side of the microscope head. This will
allow the entire microscope head to be lifted clear of its mounting bracket.
Place the microscope head down carefully, and remove the two screws that hold
the back cover of the microscope. Remove the back cover carefully, and locate
the circular anti-mould pellet that is adhered to the inside of the microscope
head. Replace the pellet with a new one, peeling the back off to reveal the new
adhesive. Take care not to touch any internal optical components, as these are
easily damaged and are difficult to clean correctly if smudged by fingerprints or
exposed to dirt of any kind.
Then replace the back cover of the microscope and place the assembly carefully
back in its mounting bracket. Fix the mounting screw through the cylindrical
spacer and tighten it in to the thread in the mounting bracket. Finally, tighten
the remaining grubscrew to fix the microscope head back in place.

FOCUS FRICTION
The SO-5800 microscope system relies on a friction device to allow the
microscope head to stay in position when it is not being focussed, yet still allow
the head to be focussed manually or by the motor drive. Over time or with
extended use, the friction may decrease resulting in some slippage of the
microscope head focussing system. This is easily remedied by resetting the
focus friction.
Firstly, focus the microscope all the way down to avoid the possibility of
accidental slipping.
Remove the focus drive cover by removing the four screws. Identify the
locations of the two holes drilled transversely, 180 degrees apart through the
manual focus knob on the other side. Insert a 2mm socket key to loosen the
grubscrews in each hole.
While gripping the large white gear steady in the focus drive housing (to ensure
the gears do not strip), tighten the knob to increase friction, or loosen it to
decrease friction as necessary. When the appropriate setting has been found,
tighten the grubscrews again and replace the focus drive cover.
Note that there may be a small level of experimentation required to achieve the
best friction setting. If the motor drive becomes too slow, there is probably too
much friction although first check that the motor speed adjustment on the main
panel is not set excessively low. If the focus system tends to slip, especially at
the top of the range, the amount of friction needs to be increased. In most cases
a slight increase in friction works best when the focus system is showing signs
of slipping.
