HCS generator calibration error - Prior/Oasis controller

Darren Thomson

Hi Nico,


Many thanks for your reply. I’m using MM 2.0 and I have a Prior H117 stage, controlled by an Oasis card. Are you saying that the ‘driver’ / ‘device adapter’ for Oasis may not adhere to normal MM convention?

If so, what are the steps required to rectify this?


Thank you,


Darren Thomson

MM 1.4 or 2.0?  What stage are you using?


It sounds like your stage (device adapter) does not adhere to the convention in Micro-Manager, and it also sounds like it has a factor of

2 error in its stepsize.  See:
