Name Description
TimeSpectrum: DevDouble
IndexSpectrum: DevLong
FileStartNumScalar: DevLong First number used for naming the data files.
FilePrefixScalar: DevString Prefix for the name of the file where the data will be saved. The full name will be prefix_num.nxs for analysed data (including raw data if WriteRawData is set to 2) and prefix_raw_num.bin for raw if WriteRawData is set to 1.
FileDirScalar: DevString Directory to save the files to.
WriteRawDataScalar: DevLong 1 -> to binary, 2 -> to nexus
MissedAnalysedTriggersScalar: DevLong Number of triggers lost going to analysis thread.
LastTriggerIdScalar: DevLong Last acquired trigger in last acquisition
FirstTriggerIdScalar: DevLong First acquired trigger Id in the last acquisition
BufferLoadScalar: DevDouble Percentage of buffer read at each call
MissedTriggersScalar: DevLong Number of missed triggers in last acquisition.
ConversionPulseScalar: DevDouble Conversion between mV and a.u.
NbDetectedTriggersScalar: DevLong
SignalOffsetChDScalar: DevDouble Signal offset.
SignalOffsetChCScalar: DevDouble Signal offset.
SignalOffsetChBScalar: DevDouble Signal offset.
RecordsLastAcquisitionScalar: DevLong Nb of records in the last acquisiton.
PeakPolarityScalar: DevLong 1 positive, -1 negative. Writing 0 also set it to positive.
PeakThresholdChDScalar: DevDouble
PeakThresholdChCScalar: DevDouble
PeakThresholdChBScalar: DevDouble
PeakThresholdChAScalar: DevDouble
SignalOffsetChAScalar: DevDouble Signal offset.
NbTriggersSetScalar: DevLong Number of triggers to be taken
ReadoutPeriodScalar: DevDouble Seconds between readout buffered data


Name Description
CalibratePulseInput: DevDouble
mV to calibrate to
Output: DevVoid
Compute mV/a.u. factor
StopAcquisitionInput: DevVoid
Output: DevVoid
Stop acquisition
StartAcquisitionInput: DevVoid
Output: DevVoid
Start acquisition
StatusInput: DevVoid
Output: ConstDevString
Device status
This command gets the device status (stored in its device_status data member) and returns it to the caller.
StateInput: DevVoid
Output: State
Device state
This command gets the device state (stored in its device_state data member) and returns it to the caller.



Name Description
ConversionPulseSaveDevDouble Updated when writing to ConversionPulse. Need it to set thresholds at start up.
SamplesPerTriggerDevLong Number of raw data samples per trigger, if set to -1 the current value is not modified.
TransferModeDevString Transfer Mode. A device has to be shutdown before initialization with a different transfre mode. Possible values: multirecord, stream
SlotDevString Number of the slot from the single board to be connected. AMC slots are sorted from left to right. To connect several single boards use, ex., 5-7
