You will need to copy
MT\_Polygon400\_SDK.DLL from your MightEx folder into µManager’s folder
in order for the device adapter to load. In the Mightex folder there is
also a folder
MT\_Polygon400\_SDK/, and in there one (or more)
subfolders with names similar to
will need to copy the entire
MT\_Polygon400\_SDK/ folder to the root of
the micromanager folder as well.
Note: For some weird reason, on Windows the device will show up in the Device Manager as some sort of network controller.
See this thread.
Notes for Polygon1000:
- After installation, the device could not be found by PolyScan2
(application provided by Mightex). The device showed up as
“libus-win32 device” - “Unprogrammed Cypress FX3”. It showed up as
something Andor related (I have the feeling that Mightex and Andor
used the same USB VID/PID, causing these issues). Clicking on
“Update driver”, and locating the driver
(Tools \> Drivers \> Polygon1000 \> Win10\_x64)resulted in a workable driver (shows up as
Universal Serial Bus Controllers \> Cypress FX3 StreamerExample Device. THis device is recognized by PolyScan2.
MT\_Polygon400\_SDKfrom the provided USB drive into the Micro-Manager application directory.
Mightex\_BLSDriver\_SDK.dll, and the Polygon did not appear in the HCW. After copying
MT\_Polgon400\_SDK.dllinto the Micro-Manager directory, it did appear. However, after selecting it the application reports: “Error in device “MightexPolygon”: Unable to communicate with the device. (35).
Stuck for now…
