Abstract(s) :

(Anglais) Applications involving nuclear materials require instruments remote control and electronic test bench automation. Software solutions exist but are either proprietary or low-level programming. In this paper, a high-level open-source software solution, R-testbench, is presented. It is a Python package that allows to manage and control instruments remotely and to fetch data for saving and post-processing. The communication with instruments is built on the well-known and reliable Virtual Instrument Software Architecture (VISA) standard. The main advantages of the proposed solution are the high-level interface and the automatic instrument recognition, which facilitate the user experience. The Python package has been validated by unit tests and by application to a real use case involving experiments with nuclear materials.
