ooacquire 0.2.3

Main changes since version 0.2.2 are:

  • Implement support for on-the-fly retrieval of instrument descriptor and calibration data from EEPROM when calibration is not available as R objects: update acq_irrad_interactive() and the functions it uses to retrieve and save calibration data.  (Similar updates are pending for the other data acquisition functions).
  • Update calibration data for MAYP11278 and MAYP112785.
  • Test with old USB2000 spectrometer.

Full change history is available at: https://docs.r4photobiology.info/ooacquire/news/index.html

NOTE: This package is NOT available through CRAN.

This package is available through the r4photobiology repository  and through GitHub.


Note: this version needs the recently released ‘rOmniDriver’ version 0.1.14 or later, so if this package is already installed it may need to be updated before updating or installing ‘ooacquire’ 0.2.3.

  1. From the binary or source packages of the released version from the CRAN-compatible repository at http://r.r4photobiology.info/.
  2. From sources of the under development version retrieved from the Git repository at GitHub.

rOmniDriver 0.1.14

This update includes several rather minor changes compared to ‘rOmniDriver’ 0.1.13:

  • Add set_USB_timeout() and is_USB_timeout().
  • Edit set_timeout() and is_timeout() as ‘OmniDriver’ does not always/any longer provide the Java methods setTimeout and isTimeout.
  • Add function is_api_enabled().
  • Add check for success of API initialization to function init_api().
  • Add preliminary (untested) support for I2C and SPI bus.
  • Move repository from BitBucket to GitHub.
  • Test with USB2000 (under Windows 10, FX/2 firmware updated to 2.51.0).
  • Test good with OmniDriver 2.56.
  • Update README to better explain all the steps needed to install this package as well as OmniDriver.
  • Update documentation to reflect that the company Ocean Optics has been renamed Ocean Insight.

‘rOmniDriver’ 0.1.13 included minor changes compared to ‘rOmniDriver’ 0.1.12:

  • Add brief installation instructions to README.
  • Fix bug affecting OS X and Linux.
  • Improve on-load diagnosis and messages.
  • Test good with OmniDriver 2.46.
