How to use Auto Calibration (CS-40 / CS-41)
Auto Calibration provides an easier way to calibrate a Dino-Lite Edge Series microscope for measurement. The DinoCapture 2.0 software identifies special QR codes on the CS-40 / CS-41 slide and performs the calibration automatically.

QR codes are divided into 3 rows:
- Row A: magnifications of 120x and above
- Row B: magnifications of 40x - 220x
- Row C: magnifications of 20x - 50x
Automatic calibration with the CS-40 / CS-41 slide
|1 Bring the CS-40 / CS-41 into focus with the Dino-Lite.
|2 Click the
Type in a name for this calibration profile and click
|4 Input the Magnification as shown on the dial. Microscopes with AMR display the mangification automatically.
|5 The software will automatically perform the calibration measurement and provide the adjusted magnification.
|6 Verify your calibration by performing a test measurement with a known standard or the 10mm scale on the CS-40 / CS-41 slide|
|Tips For best results, select a calibration profile close to the magnification you are using.
For example, if the microscope is at 75x magnification and there are calibration profiles setup for 50x, 80x and 200x, it is best to use the profile setup at the closest magnification, which in this case would be 80x.
If you measure with a magnification out of the calibrated range of your profile, the results may not be accurate. For example, if you calibrate at around 50x but then measure at 200x magnification, the measurement results may be inaccurate.
If fixed magnification is required, simply calibrate at that magnification only for the most accurate results. For example, if you will be using a fixed magnification of 50x, setting up a single calibration profile at 50x will give you the most accurate results.
