  Tungsten blade based photoemission X-ray Beam Position Monitors (XBPMs) are widely used as white beam diagnostics at synchrotrons. Traditionally, the scale factors are determined by stepper motor movements of the XBPM, or by controlled electron beam displacements, and measuring the response. These measurements must be repeated for each ID gap to produce a complete set of scale factors for all operational conditions. This calibration procedure takes time and cannot be done while users are acquiring data. In addition, the scale factors can vary over time due to changes to the storage ring. It is possible for these scale factors to become inaccurate, reducing the accuracy of the beam position measured by the XBPMs. By using the intrinsic kHz electron beam movements and correlating the signals from electron beam position monitors and XBPMs it is possible to have a real-time calculation of the scale factors without the need to disturb user operation. Presented in this paper is a method to non-invasively calculate scale factors during normal user operation. A comparison of the precision of this method versus the traditional stepper motor method is presented.
