The andor-simcam daemon can be installed using the following package managers:



The andor-simcam daemon is composed of the following traits:



aoi_hbin (int) default: 1

aoi_height (['null', 'int']) default: None
Specify the pixel height. \ Can be no larger than sensor_height - (aoi_top - 1). \ Default is the full height of camera. \ Units of super-pixels. \

Specify left most coordinate of AOI. \ Defaults to the full left of the sensor (1). \ Units of pixels. \

aoi_top (['null', 'int']) default: None
Specify top coordinate (units of pixels). \ Defaults to the top of the camera sensor (1). \ Units of pixels. \

aoi_vbin (int) default: 1

aoi_width (['null', 'int']) default: None
Specify width of AOI, in units of super-pixels. \ Defaults to the full width of sensor.

enable (boolean) default: True
Disable this daemon. The kind entry-point will not attempt to start this daemon.
from is-daemon

log_level ({'name': 'level', 'symbols': ['debug', 'info', 'notice', 'warning', 'error', 'critical', 'alert', 'emergency'], 'type': 'enum'}) default: info
Set daemon log-level.
from is-daemon

log_to_file (boolean) default: False
Optionally force logging to a file.
from is-daemon

loop_at_startup (boolean) default: False
If set to true, the daemon will begin to loop measure as soon as it starts.
from has-measure-trigger

make (['null', 'string']) default: andor
from is-daemon

model (['null', 'string']) default: simcam
from is-daemon

port (int)
TCP port for daemon to occupy.
from is-daemon

serial (['null', 'string']) default: None
Serial number for the particular device represented by the daemon
from is-daemon


The andor-simcam daemon will provide the following state information:

electronic_shuttering_mode (string)

exposure_time (float)

pixel_readout_rate (string)


The andor-simcam daemon will expose the following public messages:

busy ➜ boolean
Returns true if daemon is currently busy.
from is-daemon

get_channel_mappings ➜ {'type': 'map', 'values': {'items': 'string', 'type': 'array'}}
Defines which mapping keys apply to which channel keys. Each channel may have zero or many mappings. Mappings must broadcast into corresponding channels.
from has-mapping

get_channel_names ➜ {'items': 'string', 'type': 'array'}
Get current channel names.
from is-sensor

get_channel_shapes ➜ {'type': 'map', 'values': {'items': 'int', 'type': 'array'}}
Get current channel shapes. If list is empty, channel is scalar.
from is-sensor

get_channel_units ➜ {'type': 'map', 'values': ['null', 'string']}
Get current channel units.
from is-sensor

get_config ➜ string
Full configuration for the individual daemon as defined in the TOML file. This includes defaults and shared settings not directly specified in the daemon-specific TOML table.
from is-daemon

get_config_filepath ➜ string
String representing the absolute filepath of the configuration file on the host machine.
from is-daemon

get_electronic_shuttering_mode ➜ string

get_electronic_shuttering_mode_options ➜ {'items': 'string', 'type': 'array'}

get_exposure_time ➜ float

get_exposure_time_limits ➜ {'items': 'float', 'type': 'array'}

get_feature_limits ➜ {'items': 'float', 'type': 'array'}

feature_name (string)

get_feature_names ➜ {'items': 'string', 'type': 'array'}
Return a list of available SDK features. All features names are snake case (e.g. `sensor_temperature`), distinct from Pascal case (e.g. SensorTemperature) of the direct SDK.

get_feature_options ➜ {'items': 'string', 'type': 'array'}
Return enumerated options for specified feature name (snake case). If specified feature is not type `enum`, raises error.

feature_name (string)

get_feature_value ➜ ['string', 'int', 'float', 'boolean']
Reads the current value for the specified (snake case) feature name.

feature_name (string)

get_mapping_id ➜ int
Mapping ID. This integer increments every time the mapping is updated. Clients can safely check this id to verify that their cached mappings are correct, if desired.
from has-mapping

get_mapping_units ➜ {'type': 'map', 'values': ['null', 'string']}
Must return units for every mapping. Units can be null.
from has-mapping

get_mappings ➜ {'type': 'map', 'values': ['null', 'ndarray', 'double']}
Mappings themselves.
from has-mapping

get_measured ➜ {'type': 'map', 'values': ['int', 'double', 'ndarray']}
Returns map of channel_name to measured_value. Always returns additional key measurement_id.
from is-sensor

get_measurement_id ➜ {'type': 'int'}
Get current measurement_id. Clients are encouraged to watch for this to be updated before calling get_measured to get entire measurement.
from is-sensor

get_pixel_readout_rate ➜ string

get_pixel_readout_rate_options ➜ {'items': 'string', 'type': 'array'}

get_sensor_info ➜ {'type': 'map', 'values': ['int', 'float']}
Return a dictionary containing information about the sensor.

get_state ➜ string
Get version of the running daemon
from is-daemon

id ➜ {'type': 'map', 'values': ['null', 'string']}
JSON object with information to identify the daemon, including name, kind, make, model, serial.
from is-daemon

measure ➜ int
Initiate a measurement. Returns integer, measurement ID.
from has-measure-trigger

loop (boolean) default: False

set_electronic_shuttering_mode ➜ null

value (string)

set_exposure_time ➜ null

value (float)

set_pixel_readout_rate ➜ null

value (string)

shutdown ➜ null
Cleanly shutdown (or restart) daemon.
from is-daemon

restart (boolean) default: False

stop_looping ➜ null
Stop looping measurement.
from has-measure-trigger
