Blackrock LED Driver¶
Available on macOS
Interface to a Blackrock LED array driver
Variable to set to true when the LED program starts running, false when it stops
Variable in which to store thermistor readout from bank A
Variable in which to store thermistor readout from bank B
Variable in which to store thermistor readout from bank C
Variable in which to store thermistor readout from bank D
Calculation to use to convert raw thermistor readouts to temperatures in degrees Celsius.
10k should be used, depending on the
connector type. If
none is specified, the raw thermistor readouts
(divided by 1000) are reported.
YES, simulation mode will be enabled. In this mode, the actual LED driver hardware is not required (and will be ignored if present). All LED driver actions will execute, although communication with the driver hardware will be omitted, and running will be updated at the appropriate times. However, thermistor readout requests will not update the corresponding variables. If you need to test your experiment’s response to temperature changes, you must assign values to the temperature variables yourself.
YES, the device will start I/O automatically (as if by an
implicit Start IO Device action) when the experiment starts running.
Note: Device I/O will always stop automatically when the experiment stops running, irrespective of this setting.
Alternative device to use if this one fails to initialize (e.g. because the required hardware is not available). If
#allowAltFailover is set to 0 or false, this parameter is ignored.
