Schweizer’s innovative new hand held magnifiers bring quality, technology and design to the world of optical magnification. Several features make them a great option for the low vision user. The ERGO-Lux MP (Multi Power) mobile series comes in a choice of 11 different powers, ranging from 6D (2.5X) to 56D (15X). Bright, white LED illumination evenly disperses over the entire viewing area, thanks to the multi-chip SMD LED technology which provides an even spread of light and the precise adjustment of light intensity. The brightness level can be controlled with the 2 step Multi-Power (MP) boost switch. The smooth gliding button offers 2 levels of illumination, with an audible click to mark the different steps of illumination. This battery operated magnifier works on 3 AAA batteries (included, for greater convenience.) 18 hours of illumination offered at the lower power of illumination, and 10 hours at the higher level.
The 8D / 3X handheld ERGO-Lux handheld magnfier, featured here, has a really large magnifying lens, measuring 85mm, or 3.5". 8D of magnification is not a very strong level of magnification, but it does enable the large viewing area. This 8D lens has a 5" working distance from the paper.
Increase the functionality of your 3X magnifier by turning it into a hands free stand magnifier with the use of an optional plastic stand. Insert the magnifier into the stand, and it becomes a hands free stand magnifier, allowing the user to read hands free, without compromising the image quality. The base can either rest flat on the reading surface, for regular hands free reading, or it can also be used in an upright position to allow the user to do hands free work in front of the lens. The stand-alone base for the 8D / 3X ERGO handheld magnifier is model number 160092.
