build_measurement_configuration(user_elements)[source]

Create a minimal measurement configuration data structure from the user_elements list.

Minimal configuration data structure:

dict <str, dict> with keys:
- 'controllers' : where value is a dict<str, dict> where:
    - key: controller's full name
    - value: dict<str, dict> with keys:
        - 'channels' where value is a dict<str, obj> where:
            - key: channel's full name
            - value: dict<str, obj> with keys:
                - 'index' : where value is the channel's index <int>

    (optional) filter controllers whether these are enabled/disabled:

Returns

get_zerod_ctrls(enabled=None)[source]

Return 0D controllers.

Allow to filter controllers whether these are enabled/disabled.

Parameters

enabled (bool or None) –

get_master_timer_software()[source]

Return master timer in software acquisition.

Returns

master timer in software acquisition

Return type

ChannelConfiguration # noqa

get_master_monitor_software()[source]

Return master monitor in software acquisition.

ChannelConfiguration # noqa

get_configuration_for_user()[source]

Return measurement configuration serializable data structure.

set_configuration_from_user(cfg)[source]

Set measurement configuration from serializable data structure.

Setting of the configuration includes the validation process. Setting of invalid configuration raises an exception and leaves the object as it was before the setting process. Thanks to that it is not necessary that the client application does the validation.

The configuration parameters for given channels/controllers may differ depending on their types e.g. 0D channel does not support timer parameter while C/T does.

Todo

Raise exceptions when setting _Synchronization_ parameter for external channels, 0D and PSeudoCounters.
