2b - v1.0 FACTORY CALIBRATION

Overview

Description

Do not recalibrate you device unless you know what you're doing! If you have questions or concerns about your device, please ask on the forums

This calibration includes:

  1. Calibrating lights 1 - 10 to PAR against two LiCOR sensors attached to the MultispeQ by using a stock MultispeQ as a known light source

Directions

Once at the beginning of the day, make sure to do the following steps before calibrating new devices

  1. Ensure that the project 0 - v1.0 STOCK MULTISPEQ CALIBRATION is completed.
  2. Connect to the Stock device in the Desktop App. In the console, enter command "calibrate_leds+". The device will then run the light sequence for calibrating LEDs when prompted via the USB-C cable.

Once that is complete, you can calibrate many devices using the following directions:

  1. Connect the black USB-C cable to the Stock device and the white USB-C cable to the device to be calibrated. Make sure the ends are facing up and down in the proper orientation.
  2. Move the cabled LiCORs to the MultispeQ being calibrated. If the device is fully assembled, you will need to remove the bottom clamp by removing the bottom piece, removing the spring and sliding the lower clamp off of the dowel pins.
  3. Press enter. Lights should flash.
  4. Re-assemble the MultispeQ device: slide the clamp into place on the dowel pins, put the spring in place, and screw in the bottom piece. Ensure the spring is seated on both top and bottom.

Once complete, evaluate the quality of the results for each measurement (there are several so scroll down to see them all. If there are danger or warning messages read and retry the calibration. Then...

  1. Hit the "save to Device" button. Then submit the data to the website.

Protocols

v1.0 CALIBRATION: visible LEDs (testing) 0

Description

Each device has slight variations in the current output, and each LED varies in intensity by current. As a result, to ensure that every light outputs the same intensity given the same brightness setting, all lights must be calibrated to a known source. Visible lights (lights 1,2,3,4,and 6 which is green, red, orange, blue, and red respectively) are calibrated to a LiCOR PAR sensor. Near IR lights (5,6,7,9,10 which is 940, 940, 850, 735, 880nm respectively) cannot be calibrated to PAR because PAR is defined only as light in the 400 - 700nm region.

To calibrate the visible light LEDs, LiCOR Li-190R quantum sensors are attached to through the USB-C connector to the 16 bit DAC. (Note - first, these sensors must be calibrated to a different LiCOR Li-190 and calibration values saved to the device). The LiCOR sensors are then clipped on to the main body and clamp body of the MultispeQ device, facing the output of the light pipe (to measure the intensity of the LEDs in the MultispeQ). The protocol then flashes a series of lights, while simultaneously measuring the LiCOR sensors. The resulting LiCOR data and MultispeQ data is fit using a 2nd order polynomial, and the coefficients from the model are saved to the device and are used to correctly set the lights based on a setting in micro-Einsteins (uE).
