ccd: Area detector support

Mark Rivers

 

NOTE: This module is now obsolete and has been replaced by the areaDetector module.

Goal: Uniform interface for controlling area detectors (CCD, online image plates) from EPICS

Any EPICS client (e.g. spec, IDL, scan record) can control (at a bare minimum).

Current status

Implementation

Use manufacturerís software for primary user interface.

These programs include:

Control these programs from EPICS

 

Schematic System Architecture

 

Relationship with Brian Tiemanís Package

 

MEDM User Interface

This screen is the complete collection of PVs.  Not all of these PVs are implemented for any particular detector type, depending upon the limitations in the manufacturers control software.
