Moticam BTW Introduction
Introduction
Thank you for purchasing the D-Moticam BTW8 Tablet/Camera system.
The BTW provides an effective method of attaching a camera system to any
c-mount trinocular microscope using a 0.5x c-mount adapter. The image
from the microscope can be viewed on the provided tablet or via WiFi to any
WiFi enabled device.
The camera portion of the BTW houses a 5MP CMOS live view sensor, a
USB output as well as a WiFi transmission antenna. The user may switch
between either the USB output which can be connected to the Android
tablet provided; or the user can switch the camera to WiFi transmission
mode which allows any WiFi enabled device to view, measure and annotate
the microscope image through the available MotiConnect application. The
MotiConnect app can be downloaded through Google’s PlayStore or Apple’s
AppStore.

POWER MANAGEMENT
Power to the BTW camera is supplied via the coiled USB cable provided with this
product. Since the tablet batteries must supply power for both the tablet and camera
simultaneously, approximately 2hrs of continued used can be expected. 8hrs of
recharging is required to replenish the tablet battery. So allowing it to charge overnight
is highly recommended.
1.
Camera connected to tablet, supplying power via USB:
If more than two hours of continuous use is required, use the supplied wall charger and
power cable included with your tablet. Leaving the power charger connected to the
camera will trickle charge the tablet. This will be a much slower rate, but should allow
time beyond 2hrs.

CALIBRATION – (*Optional – not necessary to use your microscope*)
To prepare for the calibration process, please make sure you have the calibration
slide. The calibration slide has four individual dark round circles. Each dark round
circle corresponds with each objective on your microscope.

The 1.5mm dot (150um – microns) with the 4X objective.

The 0.6mm (600um – microns) with the 10X objective.

The 0.15mm (150um – microns) with the 40x objective.

The 0.07mm (70um – microns) with the 100X objective.
To begin the calibration process, place the calibration on the stage.
1. First place your calibration slide on the stage, switch to the 4X objective,
and move the slide over to the 1.5mm dot.
2. With the dot centered on the tablet screen, select the calibration button,
located on the bottom right hand side of the screen.
3. You should have a bright green circle on the screen.
4. Click the calibration button a second time.
5. This time the calibration settings window will open.
6. In the objective magnification window select the objective you captured
the dot with. In this case the 4X objective.
7. In the diameter window select the diameter of the dot you captured. In
this case the 150um. Then click OK.
8. The last window that will open is the Save Sign window. Since you
capture this image with the 4X objective, it is best to enter this on this
line.
9. The objective line should default to the objective you are calibrating. In
this case it should say 4X.
10. The X and Y numbers on the next two lines should be near identical.
Look at the first three numbers. As long as they are the same within one
or two digits, you have a good calibration.
11. Click Ok and you are done.
TRANSFERING IMAGES TO YOUR COMPUTER
By default all your images are saved to the Micro SD card included with your
M29TZ-SM99CL-BTW1 series microscope. This card is provided as a courtesy. If

recommend that you purchase a Micro SD to Standard SD card adapter.
This is simplest and easiest way to transfer images to your computer. Images are
automatically captured as Jpeg images. If your computer/laptop does not come with
an SD card slot, a SD card reader will need to be purchased as well. *Please note:
