OpTest® 7 Software
At its core, OpTest 7 software is the engine that drives our OpTest and LensCheck™ lens testing systems. It controls the electronic hardware assemblies, including all motorized motion elements, to acquire and analyze video and scanning detector signals, and to present the measurement results to the user with powerful visual graphics.
Our latest version offers users a wide array of new features that enhance your measurement options, efficiency, compatibility, and ease-of-use.
Minimum system requirements for upgrade include currently running OpTest 7 on a 64-bit, Windows 7 or 10 operating system. Upgrades are available for older systems*.
Sophisticated measurements for a wide range of users
OpTest 7 offers an entirely fresh approach to making a sophisticated measurement technique accessible to a wide range of users. It’s based on a legacy of over 30 years of developing Optikos® MTF measurement software, and its endurance is assured by adopting the latest Microsoft® programming environments and by coding the graphical user interface separately from the application. By carefully considering the underlying architecture we have ensured that the software will endure across new generations of operating systems.
Powers both OpTest and LensCheck lens testing systems
At its core, OpTest 7 is a software application that integrates with all OpTest metrology systems, including LensCheck instruments. It controls the electronic hardware assemblies, including all motorized motion elements, to acquire and analyze video and scanning detector signals, and to present the measurement results to the user with powerful visual graphics. OpTest 7 runs under Windows 7 and 10 operating systems and includes a licensed version of Microsoft Excel with each installation. All measurement data may be exported directly to formatted Excel workbooks for easy customization and inclusion in customer reports.
OpTest®7, v1.9.3 includes Python™ scripting and support for new OpTest modules
The OpTest 7 flexible platform allows a wide range of measurements; and with v1.8 includes Python™ scripting using an integrated editor, while maintaining OLE support through a COM objecto in legacy programming environments, such as Microsoft Excel VBA; and also supports the new OpTest Finite Conjugate and Afocal Modules.
Industry-leading stray light measurements
The new Glare Spread Function for visible systems, and Relative Illumination measurement for both visible and infrared video-based system modules are particularly useful for automotive applications, and expand the scope of your testing with important measurements.
New auto-exposure algorithm for testing efficiency
Our algorithm automatically adjusts camera levels to optimal intensity for faster measurements.
Support for measuring folded optical systems
Optikos SD-800 MWIR and SD-900 LWIR periscopic scanning image analyzers provide an unparalleled testing capability for folded optical systems and are fully supported by our latest software release.
Easily select the interface to match your information requirements
OpTest 7 features operating modes that are designed to match the requirements and technical sophistication of a variety of users. It provides a powerful laboratory tool in Engineering Mode, while also ensuring that manufacturing operators have access to relevant settings for their needs in Production Mode. Set up and measurement of many first order parameters such as focal length and field curvature are easy to understand, and OpTest 7 also performs sequences of measurements and is able to extract many measurements from a single data structure.
OpTest 7 includes the option to make intelligent choices for you, allowing you to rely on it for automatic selections such as camera gain and exposure or sampling reticle width.
