Beam Wander Display and Statistics
Measurement Accuracy (not limited to pixel size) 0.1 µm processing resolution for interpolated diameters.
Absolute accuracy is beam profile dependent – ~1 µm accuracy is frequently achievable.
Centroid accuracy is also beam dependent (as good as ±1 µ since it is arithmetically determined from all pixels above the centroid clip level).
Processing Options Image & profile Averaging, 1, 5, 10, 20, Continuous.
Background Capture and Subtraction.
User set rectangular Capture Block for capture
User set or Auto ellipse Inclusion region with beam tracking for processing
*.ojf files save all WinCamD custom settings for particular test configurations
Update Rates ≥6 Hz maximum for full frame, full screen. Higher for small Capture Blocks
Pass/Fail display On-screen selectable Pass/Fail colors. Ideal for QA & Production.
