  • We recommend using the WeMacro 5.0 control program, which allows you to directly calculate the step size of the objective lens. When Micromate is selected in the program, the actual working step size on the microscope will be displayed.It  can be downloaded here.


MicroMate is specially designed for microscope focus stacking.The motor on MicroMate is 400 step 0.9 degree.

For a clear display effect, we enlarged the step size, and each click sound represents taking a photo. The current version of the control box has a silent shutter.

The hight of motor can be adjusted as 2cm-18cm(It depends on the fine adjustment knob height)The knob’s diameter should smaller than 5 cm.

The package contain  as below:

1, MicroMate  bracket

2,Control box(bluetooth build-in)

3,Power supply (12V2A,Please select your contry’s type)

4,USB cable(about 1.5m)

5,Stepper motor cable( about 1m)

6, Shutter extension cable(about 1.5m)

7, Shutter release cable (Please select in option)

8,Reverse motor cable(It’s better to let objective lens leave the sample in stacking)

When the step length set as 1 micron in software,it will take 2132 steps make a full circle.

If the fine adjust focus of microscope rotate one circle as 500 micron.The minimum step is 500/2132 ≈0.23 micron as a step.If the step length set as 5 micron,the  real step is 500/400 =1.25 micron as a step.

If the fine adjust focus of microscope rotate one circle as 200 micron.The minimum step is 200/2132 ≈0.09 micron as a step.

  • By using this formula
  • reference    DOF (4X INFINITY PLAN OBJECTIVE LENS in our shop) = 55 μm
  • reference    DOF (10X INFINITY PLAN OBJECTIVE LENS in our shop) = 8.8 μm

There is other formula to calculate DOF,Please visit the link for more information.(https://www.microscopyu.com/microscopy-basics/depth-of-field-and-depth-of-focus)
