B.67 Roper Scientific Spec-10 CCD Camera
Description: Roper Scientific Spec-10 CCD camera, LN-cooled
Controlled via: PCI card, requiring a Linux device driver and
the PVCAM library (at least version 2.6.4-2) that are both available
from Roper Scientific. Please note that
fsc2 needs to be linked
against librt and libraw1394 when newer versions (2.7 and above) of the
PVCAM library are used. Please also note that currently only 2-bit
versions of the libraries seem to be available.
Note: Several important parameters of the camera need to be set in the configuration file to agree with the properties of the camera. There also can be set up that images or spectra fetched from the camera are automatically mirrored (i.e. left and right side exchanged) or images turned upside-down.
Some information about the state of the device (the ROI setting, the amount of binning and the mode mode as well as the number of pre-exposure clear cycles) are stored in a state file, in a normal installation this is `/usr/local/lib/fsc2/rs_spec10.state'. In case this file has been deleted or has become garbled use the file `config/rs_spec10.state' to replace it. Take care to set the permissions and ownership of the file correctly.
