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).

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
Pass/Fail display On-screen selectable Pass/Fail colors. Ideal for QA & Production.
