  • Calibration Instructions

    By design, the installation of ZEISS CALYPSO on non-ZEISS OEM machines does not require a machine calibration or acceptance test. Machine correction files for machine accuracy are managed and adjusted by the OEM and reside on the OEM Computer. Copying these files to a CALYPSO installation folder will allow CALYPSO to read and apply this calibration data. For quality assurance reasons, you may choose to perform an acceptance test of ZEISS CALYPSO and the CMM system. However, if machine accuracy or repeatability is not within acceptable limits, adjustments must be made to original calibration file by the OEM and moved to the correct CALYPSO installation folder.

    After the installation of CALYPSO software, or after adjustments are made during a machine calibration, move the configuration files from OEM source to CALYPSO computer.

    1. From the CALYPSO computer open CimCore Arm Utilities. 
    2. Select Disconnect under Connect menu. 
    3. Select Get Armspecs from Disk Screen.
    4. Select the \armdata folder from the hard drive or from the ArmSpecs USB Flash drive.
