Configuring Zeiss Axioplan 2 z-drive

Jake Winiski
I am attempting to configure a Zeiss Axioplan 2 using the ZeissCAN adapter. It appears the adapter was designed to support the Axioplan, but when selecting this adapter only the Axiovert 200m scope is available for selection, which identifies the other motorized components (objective turret, filter turret, lamp) but not the z-axis. Any guidance on how to approach configuring the z-axis for this model microscope would be greatly appreciated. 

Jake

Hi Jake,

 

I set up an Axioplan 2 with Micromanager a couple of years ago and if I remember correctly, it worked for 1.4.22 but not for 2.0 (of course this may have changed now). Add the ZeissScope as a hub (doesn’t matter if it says 200m, the axioplan works the same) and then select the peripherals. Again if memory serves, you may need to add the peripherals individually after adding the hub and change “List by Module” to “List by Type” to get all the available devices.

 

Also, make sure you are using the correct RS232 cable (null modem), serial to usb adaptors can work.

 

Good luck!

Matt
