This library defines a set of functions for communicating with the LazyFish
electric field sensor.
(lazyfish-initialize device-name) # open device, return port (lzp)
(lazyfish-read-all lzp) # read three channels
(lazyfish-read-single lzp) # read single channel
(lazyfish-test lzp) # read raw values
(lazyfish-select-receiver lzp rcv) # select receiver
(lazyfish-select-transmitter lzp trs) # select transmitter
(lazyfish-set-parameters lzp y z) # set measurement parameters
This library contains functions to access a LazyFish electric field
sensor connected directly to a serial port on the computer.
lazyfish-initialize opens a connection to the device (such as
"/dev/tty00") and returns a port handle lzp to use
in subsequent operations.
Calling the read commands returns measurements in a list of integers,
or just a single integer in the case of lazyfish-read-single.
You can set the measurement parameters by passing 2 integers to
See the LazyFish
web site for more information on how the device works and what
each of these commands do.
Here is an example:
(set lzp (lazyfish-initialize "/dev/tty00"))
(lazyfish-set-parameters lzp 20 7)
(while True (display (lazyfish-read-all lzp)))
