Package for working with ACS motion controllers.

Project Description

A Python package for working with ACS motion controllers.



pip install acspy


### Using the acsc module

The acsc module is designed to mimic the syntax of the ACS C library that it wraps.

`python >>> from acspy import acsc >>> hcomm = acsc.openCommDirect() >>> acsc.enable(hcomm, 0) >>> acsc.getMotorState(hcomm, 0) {'moving': False, 'enabled': True, 'in position': True, 'accelerating': False} >>> acsc.closeComm(hcomm) `

### Using the Controller object

The control module provides an object-oriented interface to the controller, making code development more intuitive. An example of its use:

`python >>> from acspy.control import Controller >>> controller = Controller(contype="simulator", n_axes=4) >>> controller.connect() >>> axis0 = controller.axes[0] >>> axis0.enable() >>> axis0.enabled True >>> axis0.ptp(500.5) >>> axis0.rpos 500.5 >>> axis0.disable() >>> controller.disconnect() `
