Deprecated controllers

Those controllers are not part of the standard BLISS codebase anymore. Some of those controllers are Python 2, some others are not up-to-date with latest API, or those controllers are obsolete or not in use – that is why they have been removed from BLISS.

That said, the code is still available in the project history, so a link is kept here (just in case !).

Leica microscope

The Leica microscope is a device from ID28, connected via USB. The communication protocol has been reverse-engineered to be able to display the microscope image as a video within MXCuBE 2, and to be able to control the different microscope axes from BLISS.
