Python library to access Hamamatsu using DCAM or RemoteEX interface

Project description

Hamamatsu python library

Hamamatsu C11440-36U

This library is used to control basic features of Hamamatsu cameras. It is composed of a core library, an optional simulator and an optional lima plugin together with its tango device class.

It has been tested with C11440-36U model, but should work with other models.

Installation

From within your favorite python environment type:

$ pip install hamamatsu

Usage

import logging
from hamamatsu.dcam import dcam, Stream

logging.basicConfig(level=logging.INFO)

with dcam:
    camera = dcam[0]
    with camera:
        print(camera.info)
        print(camera['image_width'].value, camera['image_height'].value)

        # Simple acquisition example
        nb_frames = 10
        camera["exposure_time"] = 0.1
        with Stream(camera, nb_frames) as stream:
                logging.info("start acquisition")
                camera.start()
                for i, frame_buffer in enumerate(stream):
                    frame = copy_frame(frame_buffer)
                    logging.info(f"acquired frame #%d/%d: %s", i+1, nb_frames, frame)
                logging.info("finished acquisition")

Lima

Install extra dependencies with:

$ pip install hamamatsu[lima]

Command line usage:

$ limatb hamamatsu scan

$ limatb hamamatu -i 0 info

$ limatb hamamatu -i 0 dump

$ limatb hamamatu -i 0 acquire -n 10 -e 0.1

Tango

Please refer to the Lima documentation

Simulator

Only simulates a RemoteEx TCP interface. Under development.
