The Instrument Element is a Cloud/Grid component that provides the computational/data Infrastructure with an abstraction of real instruments, and Users with a more interactive interface to control them. In other words this component provides an access to existing devices using a Service Oriented
... [More] Architecture and it allows an easy orchestration of devices using a mesh-up approach. [Less]
OptSuite is a software platform for instrument control and the control of experimental measurement setups. It is built on the Eclipse RCP and makes use of its plug-in mechanism to create an extensible framework that can be adapted to a variety of data-acquisition and visualisation tasks.
B-Fabric is an open infrastructure for data and application integration in the life sciences domain. In it is current deployment at FGCZexternal link. It allows to store and access all experimental data generated at FGCZ together with its semantic context. B-Fabric acts as the glue between the
... [More] different instrument PCs and analysis tools at FCGZ, guiding the instrument specialists and researchers through their scientific workflows.
B-Fabric is a framework for data management and information integration. B-Fabric allows storing and accessing experimental data generated by instruments that are connected to the framework. The raw data is stored together with all information that is needed to find and correctly interpret the data. [Less]
Collection of libraries to speed up automation application developement.
* ntddata: a common data abstraction layer (requires glib-2.10)
* ntdwidgets: a collection of Gtk+ widgets such as switch, gauge and plot (requires gtk+-2.8 and cairo-1.0)
* ntddb: a storaging layer
NICOS is an instrument control system which allows a 24/7 remote control of scientific instruments. It was developed at the research reactor FRM-II (as a part of the MLZ) in Garching/Munich to control the neutron experiments. It is not limited in use for these instruments since it was designed to be very flexible.
