Operator controlling their TAGARNO digital microscope with a footswitch


A hands-free microscope? Yes, it's possible.

When manipulating a sample, a Footswitch allows you to control the microscope without using your hands.

Do you recognize this scenario: As you’re inspecting a sample, you need two hands to manipulate it. But with your hands already on your sample, it’s frustating having to put the sample down to manually adjust the focus of the microscope or change magnification levels.

If you do, you’re not alone.

In fact, it’s a common pain for microscope operators that they don’t have enough hands to do it all at the same time.

The solution, however, is quite simple: A Footswitch.

Adjusting focus with a Footswitch 

Instead of putting the sample down to adjust focus or change magnification levels, the Footswitch allows you to change these settings with your feet.

By putting your feet to work and keeping your hands on the sample, it’s easy to inspect it from all necessary angles without having to put it down while adjusting the microscope.

The Footswitch, when paired with our advanced autofocus, allows for effortless rapid inspection without ever needing to take your hands off the sample – all while creating a userfriendly and efficient setup.
