Synopticx Data Acquisition Software


Keo Synopticx instrument control software provides an easy-to-use instrument control interface for automated data acquisition operations with Keo Scientific instrumentation. When used together (Synopticx and instrumentation system), they form an easy to use, highly versatile data acquisition system.

Through an intuitive graphical user interface (GUI), Synopticx allows you to define a data acquisition schedule which will be used for automated capture of data. This involves coordinating the selection of the proper filter, setting the proper exposure settings, and shutter operation. Optionally, the positions of the Sun and Moon can be used to automatically start and stop data acquisition when certain position thresholds are exceeded.
