SiLA Device Driver
A standard for the interface between devices and control software was developed by the Association Consortium Standardization in Lab Automation (SiLA). This standard (SiLA Device Control & Data Interface Specification, DCDIS) is freely available and can be downloaded from the SiLA website by registered users.
Existing SiLA Device Drivers
EQUIcon has implemented the standard for a series of devices which are used in laboratory automation systems, and offers SiLA device drivers for Windows operating systems. These drivers can be used in systems which are controlled using niceLAB scheduling software or other SiLA-conform applications.
