Calibration & Measurements

Ensure ‘Display Crossing’ is turned on, go to ‘Options > XY Guide > On/Off’.The microscope will default to crossing
‘On’, we recommend that this is left on.
Step 1 Focus the microscope on the supplied calibration ruler, and adjust the magnification wheel until the picture is clear. Take a picture of the selected area when the ruler lines are parallel to the blue XY guides, as shown in the image.
Step 2 Double-click on the image captured to enter the measurement interface.


Step 3 Once the image is open, click on the calibration icon. Using the mouse, click on the beginning and ending points; you must know the distance between the points (using the ruler). A dialogue box will pop up, and enter the exact value of the measurement into ‘Actual dimension’.The software will automatically calibrate the magnification rate. Click ‘OK’ and the adjusted magnification rate will show in the upper right corner.
Step 4 Now using ‘Any Angle Line’, under the measurement icon, measure the same distance again. If the value
measured is approximately the same as the actual value, then calibration has been successful.

Double-click on the image to enter the measurement interface. Under the ‘Measurement’ icon, choose any of the
following options to measure.

Continuous Line Measurement Allows you to measure any continuous length. Click, hold, and drag from one point to another point, then release.

Radius Circle Measurement Click, hold, and extend out to the chosen radius. The radius, circumference, and area of the circle will be calculated.


Diameter Circle Measurement Click, hold, and extend out to the chosen diameter. The diameter, circumference
and the area of the circle will be calculated.
Three Points Angle Measurement Select any three points, and the angle values will be calculated and displayed.
