How to read this guide?

Prior to starting with the Python scripts, it is recommended to read the following chapters:

  • The Prerequisites chapter covers the installation of the necessary dependencies to execute the Python scripts in this guide.
  • The Serial Number chapter explains how to obtain the serial number of the attenuator, this number is needed for the Python module and scripts to identify the device to interact with.

Once the prerequisites have been met and the reader knows the serial number of the attenuator, it is possible to use the Python scripts to interact with the attenuator, as described in the chapters below:

  • The Serial Connection API describes the API of the serial_connection module and the functionalities it offers.
  • The Examples chapter provides some examples for common use cases using the serial_connection module.
