Setup IX83 microscope and truefocus (Truefocus is the new name for Olympus ZDC2)

Schipper, David Lee
Hi,

I am currently setting up an olympus IX83 microscope with true-focus/ZDC2 and have everything working except the autofocus function.  

I used the olympus IX83 configuration and it includes what appears to be continuous auto-focus, however when I try to setup hardware focus drive via the wrench icon I run into an issue.  Basically I do not have any values for HardwareFocusDevice or ZDrive and thus it will not let me run hardware autofocus.

Does the olympus IX83 microscope configuration not include ZDC2?  I thought this might be the issue, but when I tried adding the ZDC/ZDC2 configs I got an error.

Has anyone had success setting up a IX83 with Truefocus/ZDC2?

Any help would be much appreciated,
- David
