Pelcon Automatic Point Counter




PELCON has developed an automated point counter for
mounting on light microscopes, based on extensive experience
with point counting in petrographic analysis of thin sections.


The motorized stage is easily   mounted on the rotating table of a microscope by means of a single fixation screw. Fits on all rotating stages with threaded hole – if not already in place this is easily made with the enclosed gauge.

  The slim design ensures plenty of 
  workspace and possibility of 180° rotation
  during analysis (detachment of the
  verniers of the rotating table is optional to
  allow maximum rotation).
The stage allows mounting of thin
sections up to 66mm x 90mm and a
possible analysis area of 66mm x 50mm.


                            PELCON Design and Production with first-class quality
                            materials ensures long-life.  
          Save time-consuming procedures in your 
          point countingand experience the marked
          improved ergonomics and analysis speed
          during your daily work.

The Point Counter has a 61 species key-pad.



The software allows setting of step-length for the analysis from 0.05 - 2.00 mm. You first select which port the point counter is connected to. Then you can setup the analysis and the keys before commencement of analysis.

With version 2.00 of the program it is possible to re-evaluate and discuss specific points in any previously analysed slide by loading its saved data. Just place your slide in the frame once again, and the program enables you to automatically re-locate all points of each classification on the slide.


During the analysis the motorized stage will move the sample by one step-length when pressing one of the key-pad buttons. Each button is assigned to a species/class and this ensures simultaneous registration of up to 61 species.



By the end of each test-line you manually slide the sample to the next test-line by means of two toothed sliding wheels.

The software supplies on-line results with calculated percentages during the analysis, and subsequent saving and report printing facilities, beside from the 61-species version.
