Here you will find device classes available in the community. Device classes provide among others connectivity to equipment. So, if you want to connect your hardware to Tango Controls please check this catalogue. One or more device classes can be wrapped as a device server to connect one or more devices to your Tango control system. Tango imposes no limit on the number of devices or classes in a device server. It depends on the implementation of the device class.
