Name Description
ADC5DataSpectrum: DevDouble
ADC4DataSpectrum: DevDouble
ADC3DataSpectrum: DevDouble
ADC2DataSpectrum: DevDouble
ADC1DataSpectrum: DevDouble
TriggerMultiplyScalar: DevLong Number of internal triggers for each external trigger
InternalTriggerCounterScalar: DevLong Counter for the internal triggers for each external trigger
MaskDataToWriteScalar: DevLong Mask for the writing of data, set to 1 the bit corresponding to the data you don`t want to be writen: counter 1, encoder1 2, encoder2 3, encoder3 4, encoder4 5, encoder5 6. Ex. not write encoder1 -> 2, not write encoder1 and encoder4 -> 18
ADC5Scalar: DevDouble
ADC4Scalar: DevDouble
ADC3Scalar: DevDouble
ADC2Scalar: DevDouble
BufferLoadScalar: DevDouble Percentage of SDRAM buffer currently read
RemainingTriggersScalar: DevDouble
ExternalTriggerCounterScalar: DevLong Counter for the external triggers
FileDirScalar: DevString Directory to save the data
FilePrefixScalar: DevString File to save the data: FilePrefix.csv
ADC1Scalar: DevDouble
TimeTriggerStepSizeScalar: DevDouble Step size for triggers in time (only used if triggermode 2 or 3).
TimeTriggerStartScalar: DevDouble Time delay before start triggering after arming (only used if triggermode 2 or 4)
ArmScalar: DevLong Set to 1 for start triggering und to 0 to stop.
TriggerPulseLengthScalar: DevDouble Length of the trigger pulse. Used in all trigger modes. It has to be smaller than the TimeTriggerStepSize (for trigger modes 2 and 3) and smaller than the time the motor needs for travelling the PositionTriggerStepSize for trigger modes (1 and 4).
NbExternalTriggersScalar: DevLong Number of external triggers to generate
