Name Description
StopInput: DevVoid
Output: DevVoid
Stop the current acquisition
StateInput: DevVoid
Output: State
This command gets the device state (stored in its device_state data member) and returns it to the caller.
StatusInput: DevVoid
Output: DevString
This command gets the device status (stored in its device_status data member) and returns it to the caller.
StartInput: DevVoid
Output: DevVoid
Start acquisition
GetInfoInput: DevVoid
Output: DevString
Get driver version, Enumerate available boards with their type
SetBufferedModeInput: DevVoid
Output: DevVoid
switch the device from scalar mode to buffered mode
SetScalarModeInput: DevVoid
Output: DevVoid
switch the device from buffered mode to scalar mode
NexusResetBufferIndexInput: DevVoid
Output: DevVoid
Call the nexuscpp function : ResetBufferIndex, which is used to start a new acquisition sequence with index starting at 1



Name Description
BoardsString[]Type The name of the boards as specified in Measurement & Automation eXplorer (MAX).
IsMasterDevBoolean Specify if the board generates the counting signal or if this signal comes from an external input. - If 1, the counter0 will generate the signal that specify the integration time of the other counters of the board. -If 0, the integration time will come from the input PFI38.
SlavesString[]Type The slaves device names (used only if IsMaster is equals to 1).
NexusNbAcqPerFileDevLong Define the number of acquisition (steps) in each nexus file.
MemorizedNexusFileGenerationDevBoolean Allows storage of acquired data into Nexus files.
MemorizedNexusTargetPathDevString Define the root path for generated nexus files.
MemorizedContinuousAcquisitionDevBoolean Allows the auto restart of the acquisition.
NexusMeasureDimensionDevShort Dimension of the measure to be pushed into the nexus file, can be : 0 -> for a 0D measure (a scalar value) 1 -> for a 1D measure (a spectrum value)
NexusSynchronousSavingDevBoolean Flag saying if the Nexus saving is synchronous or asynchronous. Default = false
TimeoutSecDevDouble Timeout of the acquisition in seconds (default = 3)
ApplyNumTriggersBugWorkaroundDevBoolean If set to true, the ``n + 1 triggers bug workaround`` is applied
