Keithley 3706 is a multi-channels multimeter. It is used in DCM to monitor 60 pt100 sensors.
Keithley3706 controller uses
package for thermocouples temperature reading.
As Keithley 3706 is not (yet ?) a regular ESRF device, pt100 package is not inclueded in BLISS requirements. At ESRF, it must be installed with:
conda install pt100 -c esrf-bcu
Outside of ESRF, the pypi package https://pypi.org/project/pt100/ can be used.
As the K3706 is not a regulator but only a reading device, it is not (for now) included in the regulation framework.

class: Keithley3706 name: k37dcm tcp: url: k3706dcm.esrf.fr counters: - counter_name: X1111_7 slot: 1 channel: 1 - counter_name: X1111_8 slot: 1 channel: 2
For now, all channels of the 4 slots are read at each count. It takes around 12 seconds.
- each slot musst be initialized after a reboot of the device.
- To perform a reading, a ‘Programm’ has to be ran.
