Supported Detectors

Commuinity Supported Detectors

Beginning with release R2-0 (March 2014) the areaDetector module is in the areaDetector project on Github. This project is organized as a top level module and a set of submodules, e.g. ADCore, ADProsilica, ADPilatus, etc.

The following table provides links to the github repository, the documentation, and pre-built binaries.

areaDetector camera drivers supplied by 3rd parties

Some areaDetector support have been developed by others. These are not distributed with the areaDetector releases (source or binary) and are not directly supported by the areaDetector working group, but may be useful for users:
