This adapter interfaces with Prior hardware through the ProScan, OptiScan or NanoZScan controllers. It communicates with the controller through the serial port so that no further software is needed. It works with the Prior XYStage, Zstage, filter wheels, shutters, the LumenPro and can also control the TTLs on the Proscan controller. No 'hub' device is defined in this adapter. Specify the same serial port for all devices.

Special properties of the XYStage (since 1.3.40):

MaxSpeedSets the maximum speed of the XY stage
AccelerationSets the acceleration of the XY stage
SCurveThis is the rate of change of acceleration during the transition from stationary until the stage reaches the full acceleration set by 'Acceleration'
