Argos3D - P100 Manual Offset Calibration

If the absolute accuracy of your Argos3D - P100 is not to your satisfaction, or for any other reason, you can apply an offset to the distance data by following these steps:

  1. Place your Argos coplanar in front of a uniform white target
  2. Avoid extreme environmental light conditions or avoid light completely
  3. Plug the Argos' power and Usb cable
  4. Start the Application 'Argos3D - P100 Visualizer' Version 2.1.0 or higher
  5. Set the desired modulation frequency at which the Argos should be calibrated: In 'Command line' type 'SetRegister 130 <Hz>' (replacing <Hz> by the desired modulation frequency) and click 'Src cmd'
  6. The response is 'OK'
  7. Set the offset to zero: In 'Command line', type 'SetOffset 0 0' and click 'Src cmd'
  8. The response is 'OK'
  9. Check the amplitude in the center of the image by moving your mouse over one of the images: 'Statistics' shows the distance and amplitude
  10. Adjust the integration time in order to have an amplitude of approximately 3000 in the center of the image
  11. In 'Statistics', enter '50' in order to calculate the average over 50 frames
  12. Move your mouse over one of the two images in the center of the uniform white target
  13. After 50 frames without moving the mouse, the calculated average distance appears in the 'Statistics' section
  14. Substract that value from the real distance measured from the camera to the uniform white target
  15. The given offset can now be applied typing 'SetOffset 0 <mm>' (replacing <mm> by the offset in [mm]) and click 'Src cmd'
  16. In order to preserve the offset calibration beyond a device reset, the whole register map must be saved to flash by typing 'WriteConfigToFlash' in 'Command line and clicking 'Src cmd'
