ANDOR CCD driver
ANDOR CCD Cameras
This driver supports up to 8 cameras but does not support hot-plug due to Andor SDK limitation. All devices should be connected on driver startup.
This driver is Linux/Intel (32-bit and 64-bit) specific. The user must provide his own copy of Andor SDK. Andor SDK is not free. Please see http://www.andor.com/scientific-software/software-development-kit
INDIGO Astronomy open-source license.
This driver is optional and not built by the main indigo Makefile. one should install Andor SDK and then in the indigo source directory do:
Tested to compile against:
- Andor SDK v.2.95.30003.0
- Andor SDK v.2.100.30039.0
- Andor SDK v.2.102.30001.0
In case Andor SDK is not installed on the standard location, ANDOR_SDK_PATH environment variable must be set to the correct path before starting indigo_server. Default ANDOR_SDK_PATH is: "/usr/local/etc/andor".
Driver is developed and tested with:
- Andor iKon-L
- Andor Newton
Due to Andor SDK limitation it is not possible to take simultaneous exposures with several cameras. Only one camera can take exposure at a given time.
