Lamphouse Port Adapters
These adapters provide compatibility between Leica DMI microscope lamphouse ports and our SM1 (Ø1") lens tube, 30 mm cage assemblies, or our SM2 (Ø2") lens tubes. Available adapters are outlined in the table to the right. The adapters allow laser beam combiners, LED light sources, and other mechanical and optical components to be directly connected to the microscope lamphouse port. The adapters provide rigid coupling to maintain long-term, stable alignment. They are offered with either black or silver anodization to match the surface finish of various devices, such as our 4-Wavelength LED Source.
Camera Port Adapters
The SM1A50 adapter is designed to allow SM1 and 30 mm Cage System components to be mounted to the camera port on a Leica DMI microscope. The adapter is internally SM1 and externally SM2 threaded and features four 4-40 taps on 30 mm that accept ER cages rods. This adapter is ideal for inserting custom optics, as well as our CCD and CMOS cameras, into a microscope system.
Note: Thorlabs does not guarantee compatibility with other industry-standard microscopes not mentioned on this wepage.

30 mm Cage Compatibility
The SM1A50 microscope adapter is designed so that custom-built optical systems or detectors based on Thorlabs' components may be attached to the camera port of Leica DMI Microscopes.
The SM1A50 features internal SM1 (1.035"-40) threading for compatibility with Ø1" Lens Tubes, external SM2 (2.035"-40) threading that is compatible with Ø2" Lens Tubes, and 4-40 tapped holes on 30 mm centers for attaching cage system rods. Since Thorlabs' USB CCD and CMOS cameras are provided with a C-Mount to SM1 adapter, our cameras can also be easily integrated into microscope systems for general imaging applications. For demanding imaging applications, our Scientific CCD Cameras can be adapted to SM1 threading using a C-Mount to SM1 adapter (Item # SM1A39), available separately. To achieve proper parfocality, we recommend using a Ø1" lens tube with 1.8" thread depth (which can be achieved by combining Item # SM1L10, SM1L05, and SM1L03) with the Leica DMI microscopes and camera port adapters. In addition, an SM1-threaded dust cover (Item # SM1CP2) is included to keep the port closed when not in use.
