Modular Data Acquisition with Python

Project description

PyMoDAQ, Modular Data Acquisition with Python, is a set of python modules used to perform automated measurements.



It is made for the scientist who need to perform various acquisitions without having to write a user/interface for each new experiment. PyMoDAQ interface is fixed, and any new hardware can be added as a small plugin. Preset modes of a given set of actuators and detectors can be written for easy experiment inititialization.


It is divided in three main modules:

  • DAQ_Move : used to control/drive an actuator (stand alone and/or automated). Any number of these modules can be instantiated.
  • DAQ_Viewer : used to control/drive a detector (stand alone and/or automated). Any number of these modules can be instantiated.
  • DAQ_Scan : This is the module that will initialize all preset actuators and detectors. Then will automate the data acquisition.
