This is the documentation of the Slave library, designed to simplify instrument control.

Python has many advantages, that make it interresting for the test & measurement industry. It is easy to learn yet powerfull. Libraries such as pyvisa or pyserial are an important step in making python usefull in these field. But developers still have to implement device drivers on their own. Slave simplifies this even further, providing automatic command construction, type parsing, etc. as well as several ready-to-use device drivers, such as the

  • Lakeshore ls340 temperature controller
  • Lakeshore ls370 ac resistance bridge
  • Signal recovery sr7225 lock-in amplifier
  • Stanford Research sr830 lock-in amplifier
  • Cryomagnetics 4G magnet power supply
  • etc.
