Subject: ADPIcam driver question

Hi Folks,

I'm trying to get a PIXIS camera from Priceton Instruments working with the 
ADPIcam driver and PIcamSDK 5.6.1 under Linux. The driver compiles fine (after 
some changes to the Makefile). It can see the camera and extract all 
information about existing and relevance status of the camera parameters.

Her are my questions:

1) When does the driver set the parameters in the camera? As soon as I change 
them, or only on start of acquisition?

2) I observe a strange behavior of the TriggerMode parameter in the ADBase 
panel in CSS. According to the database file it should offer two options: 
Internal and External. Instead it offers three options for my detector which 
fit to the real possibilities of the camera, but TriggerMode and 
TriggerMode_RBV do not match! Where do these settings get changed?

3) If I change the acquire time of the camera, it looks as this setting does 
not have an effect. Probably this refers back to question one, but we tried to 
stop and start the acquisition of the camera without any change in readout 
speed when changing the acquire time from 1s to 10 seconds.

Can anybody shed some light on these questions?

With kind regards,

Jörn Dreyer
