ACS provides key methods to handle the binary ACS data
read_device_file: Parse device file to be able to unpack and calibrate binary frame
find_frame: Find registered ACS frames in bytearray
unpack_frame: Unpack/Decode a binary frame into named tuple
calibrate_frame: Convert a frame engineering units (counts) into scientific units (1/m for a and c)
ConvertBinToCSV are an illustration of the usage of the ACS class to parse binary files recorded with Compass software (.bin).
