WCU-4 and Alexa Mini measurement system conversion

Tue Mar 14, 2017 11:51 am

Hi,

Is there a way like on Preston that if we have say metric scale lenses to display values on WCU-4 in imperial using Alexa Mini as motor controller or we need Alexa Plus / UMC-4 in order to do that, or is that even possible?

Thanks!

Hello Kārlis,

when you use non LDS lenses it is only possible to display the values of the programmed LDA files.
Only with LDS lenses you can switch between metric and imperial.

best regards

It would be nice to have the possibility to map a lens with imperial scale and the convert it to metric... Maybe in a future firmware?
