FAQ #2.10: 

I am using the Motorized-Stage Configuration of VisionGauge and sometimes - for no apparent reason - the stage and / or column starts moving on its own.

Solution:

In the vast majority of cases when the stage and / or column is moving on its own, it's because the external joystick is not properly calibrated. The "un-calibrated" joystick is sending "move" commands to the stage and / or column. To rectify the situation, we suggest that you carry out the following steps:

a) shutdown VisionGauge

b) erase the file called "VisionGauge.joy" located in the main VisionGauge sub-directory (probably "c:\VisionGauge") on your computer's hard disk. 

c) startup VisionGauge. VisionGauge will walk you through the different steps required to calibrate the joystick.

This should solve the problem.

Please note that you can use password protection (described in chapter entitled "High-Precision Measurements" of the User's Guide) to stop operators from un-calibrating the joystick.
