Thetype exposes the following members.
True if the focuser is capable of absolute position; that is, being commanded to a specific step location.
Set True to connect to the device hardware. Set False to disconnect from the device hardware. You can also read the property to check whether it is connected. This reports the current hardware state.
Returns a description of the device, such as manufacturer and modelnumber. Any ASCII characters may be used.
Descriptive and version information about this ASCOM driver.
A string containing only the major and minor version of the driver.
The interface version number that this device supports. Should return 3 for this interface version.
True if the focuser is currently moving to a new position. False if the focuser is stationary.
State of the connection to the focuser.
Maximum increment size allowed by the focuser; i.e. the maximum number of steps allowed in one move operation.
Maximum step position permitted.
The short name of the driver, for display purposes
Current focuser position, in steps.
Step size (microns) for the focuser.
Returns the list of action names supported by this driver.
The state of temperature compensation mode (if available), else always False.
True if focuser has temperature compensation available.
Current ambient temperature as measured by the focuser.
Invokes the specified device-specific action.
Transmits an arbitrary string to the device and does not wait for a response. Optionally, protocol framing characters may be added to the string before transmission.
Transmits an arbitrary string to the device and waits for a boolean response. Optionally, protocol framing characters may be added to the string before transmission.
Transmits an arbitrary string to the device and waits for a string response. Optionally, protocol framing characters may be added to the string before transmission.
Dispose the late-bound interface, if needed. Will release it via COM if it is a COM object, else if native .NET will just dereference it for GC.
Immediately stop any focuser motion due to a previous Move(Int32) method call.
Moves the focuser by the specified amount or to the specified position depending on the value of the Absolute property.
Launches a configuration dialog box for the driver. The call will not return until the user clicks OK or cancel manually.
SPECIFICATION REVISION - Platform 6.4
The method signatures in the revised interface specification are identical to the preceeding IFocuserV2, however, the IFocuserV3.Move command must no longer throw an InvalidOperationException exception if a Move is attempted when temperature compensation is enabled.
