TANGO Device server concept

The TANGO system works around the concept of "Device Server ". A device server is a program that deals specifically with permanent dialogue ("server") with the apparatus ("device"). The device server can be written in Java, C + +, Python, based on their use.

Good programming practices in LIONS want the device servers based on external libraries or DLL C are programmed in C + +. Other devices are servers written in Python.


Around 50 Device Servers have been developed at LIONS.
