luxx_communication 0.1.4

Module for control of Omicron LuxX laser

This module provides framework for communication with Omicron LuxX laser, connected to the computer via serial interface (RS-232 or USB). You can import it into your interpreter (e.g. IPython) and control laser with simple self-explanatory statemens. Other option is to integrate it into some kind of program, which allows flexible device control. Typical usage often looks like this:

#!/usr/bin/env python

from luxx_communication import Laser

laser = Laser(port="/dev/ttyUSB0")
laser.set_power(10)         # 10 mW
laser.set_mode("CW-ACC")    # Auto current control
laser.start()               # Start light emission

Other Omicron lasers (BrixX and PhoxX) are controlled in a similar manner, and this module should be able to control them right away. However, they were never tested. These lasers have some additional functions, support for which can be easily added into this module.
