The MOTOR CONTROLS window allows to position the sample using motorized stages.
Coordinate System Selector
Selects the coordinate system for the XYZ position. Options:
Sample: Default See Motor Coordinate System for more information. Stage: Stage coordinates. Might be inverted relative to sample coordinates Raw Motor: raw motor axis coordinates as returned from the motor controller
X, Y, Z Position Indicators
Shows the current position of XYZ axes. If an axes is simulated, the background will be gray If an axes is in an error mode, the background will be red
Queries the position of the motor controllers.
Zero, Zero All, Clear Zero
Establish relative origin for selected axes.
Move sample focus in arrow direction by defined step size. Keyboard shortcuts: arrow keys, PgUp, PgDn Note: holding the Ctrl key while stepping reduces the step size by a factor of 10
Reestablish the connection to all motor controllers.
Specify tip/tilt of objective optical axis relative to the motor axes
FastZ Goto Zero
Move the FastZ positioner to its zero position
Sets the FastZ target position
Shows the value of the FastZ position sensor
Calibrate the FastZ position sensor
Move the FastZ actuator by defined step size.
Shortcuts: 1) Drag focus using mouse (red star in axes on left side of window) 2) Hover mouse over axes on left side of window and use scroll wheel Note: holding the Ctrl key while stepping reduces the step size by a factor of 10
Align the FastZ coordinate system to the sample coordinates.
