第三方支持

MetaMorph

集成到MetaMorph中的驱动程序由分子器件自身来维护,并且是官方MetaMorph发行版的一部分。代码被叠加到现有的PI软件上,因此PI GCS2 DLL支持的、可使用USB或RS-232进行连接的所有PI控制器都可被支持。XY(样本)和Z(焦点)驱动器也可被支持。


micro-manager

PI开发了一个设备适配器,其是微管理器(micro-manager)官方版本的一部分。有了它,用户无需从PI产品CD中获取单独的模块,而是只需在交付时将其集成到微管理器中。

它支持所有能读取GCS2的PI控制器。

平台可以任意组合成“Z向位移台”(焦点)以及“XY位移平台”(样本)。任意数量的平台均可连接;不过,用户界面中只可选择活动的Z驱动器或XY位移平台。

PI GCS 2 - Micro-Manager


EPICS

PI为EPICS提供自己的PI GCS2驱动程序,该驱动程序在不断开发中,是官方EPICS发行版的一部分。有关官方支持的PI设备列表,请浏览:

EPICS Hardware Support: by Manufacturer

列表中没有的控制器也并不代表不支持,如果遇到这种情况,我们的PI销售工程师可以提供建议和支持。

EPICS“电机”接口可被支持;文档资料请见:

EPICS: Motor Record and Device/Driver support

通信是通过EPICS中的模块实现的。

 


ScanImage

ScanImage支持某些PI控制器;列表详见:

ScanImage Supported Microscope Hardware

(optional)

PI未对此功能的实现进行开发或测试。


TANGO

PI does not offer its own driver for Tango, but for many PI controllers Tango supports already exist. Where this is not the case, PI gladly supports its customers with the implementation.

Robot Operating System (ROS)

The Robot Operating System (ROS) is a flexible framework for developing software for robotics. It is a set of tools, software libraries, and rules that help you build and control complex robot applications.

For support, PI offers a ROS driver with which PI hexapods can be integrated into a ROS environment. The PI hexapods can comfortably be controlled with it by using the well known mechanisms from ROS. ROS additionally offers the possibility to visualize and simulate the application. For certain hexapods, models exist that are automatically available when the ROS driver is downloaded.

The download is available on the ROS website:
