Type / Mounting
           
   Your choices are...         
   Arm / Boom / Clamp       The magnifier is mounted on a rigid boom, flexible gooseneck, or articulating arm. This style of magnifier is used for inspection, jewelry work, assembly, or electronics manufacturing applications, where the ability to easily position the magnifier and provide two free hands is an asset.  
   Bar / Rule / Sheet       Bar, rule, or sheet magnifiers are used to examine documents, photographs, or textiles.  They function by placing a plastic or glass lens on top of the item that is being examined.  Generally, hemispherical or Fresnel lenses are used in conjunction with these magnifiers.  Rule magnifiers have a scale printed or inscribed on a surface of the magnifier to allow for more precise measurements. 
   Binocular       Binoculars have a pair of magnifying lenses that provide stereoscopic or depth perception in addition to magnifying the image.  Binocular magnifiers are colloquially known as "headlights." 
   Desktop Stand       Magnifiers designed for desktop use. 
   Folding / Linen       The magnifier classification includes styles where the lens folds into the body for protection, or the lens or the body collapses to a more compact size for portability.  A variety of folding magnifiers are available, generally in handheld or desktop configurations.  Box-like folding magnifiers that mount on a desktop are often referred to as linen magnifiers. 
   Floor Stand / Mount       Magnifiers using a floor mount stand. 
   Handheld       Magnifiers designed with an integrated handle for ease of use.  Handheld magnifiers generally provide less magnifying power than other magnifier styles. 
   Headband / Visor       Headband or visor magnifiers are worn on the head, like a hat or pair of glasses. Some varieties allow the user to flip lenses into and out of place to change the magnification level. 
   Loupe       Commonly used by jewelers, a loupe is a small magnifier held in the eye socket to allow for intense scrutiny of an object.  Some styles are handheld or clip onto glasses. 
   Magnetic Base       This style of magnifier uses a magnet to clamp onto a desktop or machine tool. 
   Pocket       Pocket magnifiers are of a very compact size to allow for portability. 
   Screen Magnifier       Screen magnifiers are simply flat screens that are placed in front of a computer monitor, video or television screen, to magnify the image. 
   Video / Digital       This classification includes all magnifiers that capture an image digitally though a video camera or CCD, and then electronically magnifying the image display on a screen.  The resolution of the initially captured image limits the level of magnification. 
   Other       Other unlisted, specialized, or proprietary magnifier types.

Specifications & Features
   Magnification       The number of times the image is magnified. 
   Search Logic:      User may specify either, both, or neither of the limits in a "From - To" range; when both are specified, matching products will cover entire range. Products returned as matches will meet all specified criteria.
   Bifocal Lens?       Magnifiers with a bifocal lens provide two, and sometimes more, magnification levels. This style includes traditional bifocal lenses that have two different strength lenses melded together, as well swing lens or drop alignment types. 
   Search Logic:      "Required" and "Must Not Have" criteria limit returned matches as specified. Products with optional attributes will be returned for either choice.
   Illuminated?       The magnifier has either built-in lighting, or is designed to accept clip-on lights. 
   Search Logic:      "Required" and "Must Not Have" criteria limit returned matches as specified. Products with optional attributes will be returned for either choice.
   ESD Safe?       Electrostatic discharge (ESD) can damage sensitive electronic components.  An ESD safe is designed so that random or static charge energy cannot be released. 
   Search Logic:      "Required" and "Must Not Have" criteria limit returned matches as specified. Products with optional attributes will be returned for either choice.
   Scale / Comparator Recticle?       The magnifier has an internal scale or recticle grid for comparative measurements of dimensional or orientation features.  A recticle is a flat, transparent component inscribed or etched with a grid or graduations. Recticles can be placed with the magnifier, or on top of, or along the side of the product being examined. 
   Search Logic:      "Required" and "Must Not Have" criteria limit returned matches as specified. Products with optional attributes will be returned for either choice.
   Variable Magnification?       The magnifier provides several magnification levels.  It may produce discrete or continuous changes in magnification using multiple, independent, or aligned lenses, or an optical or digital zoom system. The lenses themselves may swing or drop into alignment on some magnifiers. 
   Search Logic:      "Required" and "Must Not Have" criteria limit returned matches as specified. Products with optional attributes will be returned for either choice.
   Work Holders / Manipulators?       Magnifiers constructed with integral clamps, clips, or magnet holders for manipulating or holding a work piece. 
   Search Logic:      "Required" and "Must Not Have" criteria limit returned matches as specified. Products with optional attributes will be returned for either choice.
   Applications       
   Your choices are...         
   Assembly       Assembly magnifiers are used for fine industrial production work, such as assembling electronic components, printed circuit boards, or miniature mechanical assemblies.  This type of application requires moderate magnification with a good depth of field, and field of view. Usually an arm, desktop, headband, or other hands-free unit may be used. 
   Documents / Photographs       This style of magnifier is used to review or edit of film, photos, drawings, or printed documents.  Desktop stand or linen type magnifiers are usually used for this application. 
   Electronics Manufacturing       Printed circuit board work, soldering rework, inspection of electronics or semiconductor components often requires a magnifier or microscope.  The magnifier should have sufficient resolving power for the level of detail.  Usually an arm, desktop, headband or another hands-free unit is applied. 
   Forensics       The magnifier is designed for examination of evidence involving a crime or accident scene.  Small or portable magnifiers are applied in the field, while higher powered magnifiers or microscopes are used in lab settings.  Traditional employment of these devices includes examination and differentiation of gun bore or bullet markings, fabrics, fingerprints or other evidence. 
   Industrial Inspection       Inspection is the examination of products for conformance to dimensional or other specifications.  A magnifier is often required for inspection of fine part details or miniature parts. 
   Jewelry / Gemology       Fabrication, repair or inspection of jewelry, gems or engravings often requires a magnifier.  Headband loupes or jeweler's loupes are often used in this application, although arm mounted or desktop magnifier may perform the same function. 
   Medical / Life Science       Magnifiers designed to aid surgical, dentistry or diagnostic activities, as well as for biological field use. 
   Vision Aid       Magnifiers to help people who are vision-impaired. 
   Tool & Die / Machinist       Precision micro-machining, engraving, or die sinking often requires a magnifier.  Moderate magnification is required with good depth of field and field of view. Usually an arm, desktop, headband, or other hands-free unit is applied. 
   Textile       Magnifiers used to determine weave-type or the denier of the warp and weft fibers. 
   Other       Other unlisted, specialized, or proprietary application. 
   Search Logic:      All products with ANY of the selected attributes will be returned as matches. Leaving all boxes unchecked will not limit the search criteria for this question; products with all attribute options will be returned as matches.
