iLO liftout software (VS5)
Drag & drop control software optimized for TEM sample lift out. The iLO Graphic User Interface provides an intuitive and seamless way of positioning the MM3A-EM micromanipulator tip or MGS2 microgripper on the specimen, lifting it out and attaching to the desired receptacle.The tool tip is positioned by simple drag & drop actions while the tip’s motion is automatically adjusted for the currently active beam, the beam’s rotation, as well as the magnification. The software provides a new action button that executes a perfectly vertical lift-out motion. It also integrates a convenient park & restore function as well as a stand-by position providing an intermediate ‘parking’ position within the microscope’s field of view where the needle can be placed between liftouts.Control for the MGS2-EM microgripper is also supported by iLO. Similarly the Rotip-EM rotational tip can also be operated via the software. After calibration, the RoTip can perform continuous compucentric rotation.
