PRECiV™ software enables users in production, quality control, and inspection to make precise, repetitive 2D measurements and obtain results that comply with the latest industrial standards. With robust data sharing and security features, PRECiV software makes microscopy workflows faster and more efficient.

PRECiV software turns any manual microscope into a comprehensive imaging and measurement platform. The software can control all Olympus conventional industrial microscopes, their coded functions, Olympus motorized nosepieces, and Olympus digital microscope cameras. It supports brightfield, darkfield, MIX (directional darkfield), polarization and differential interference contrast (DIC) imaging
for flexibility and offers robust color rendering and high resolution to provide high-clarity images.

The software’s intuitive interface is simple to use with a navigation tab that clearly groups the software’s functions — such as observation, acquisition, and measurement — using large, clearly labeled buttons. For newer users, advanced settings remain hidden while experienced users can easily access all the available features and functions. The home screen can be customized so that the features and functions used most often can be readily accessed.

PRECiV software enables precise, repetitive two-dimensional measurements on a live or recorded image. Powerful functions like auto edge detection (available in PRECiV Pro and PRECiV Desktop) to reliably measure the distance between two points, auxiliary lines (available in PRECiV Pro and PRECiV Desktop) to make complex geometric measurements and a magic wand for automatic area detection enable inspectors to be confident in their data.

Acquiring all-in-focus images that extend beyond the microscope’s field of view is also easy. The extended focal imaging (EFI) function serially acquires multiple images in different focal planes while the panorama function enables users to move the stage across the sample and then stitch those images together into one large image. Using PRECiV software, users can now combine instant EFI and panorama images while keeping both hands on the microscope.

For advanced applications like grain sizing or non-metallic inclusions, optional Materials Solutions guide users through the steps required to acquire measurements that comply with the latest standards, including ISO, ASTM and JIS.

PRECiV software has robust data sharing and security features (Olympus can provide a manufacturer disclosure statement for medical device security [MDS] that focuses on the NIST framework for cybersecurity). With a connected workstation, users can easily save images and
configuration files to the cloud or a net-work drive, receive automatic software updates and security patches, use a floating license, and upgrade to new versions. Images
can be saved and loaded in multiple formats or saved as a JPEG with the accompanying calibration information for traceability. Sharing methods and configuration files — including measurements, image processing settings, and materials solutions settings — between connected workstations makes it possible to get the right information
in front of the right person quickly and easily.
