If you can get a Canon camera to borrow you can use our XML version while we wait on programming.Here is our compatible camera list : https://pamcosupport.com/cameralist/———————————————-
For example. If you want to turn the table 45degrees, then use our app with camera to take only 2 pictures. This way the system will take a picture, move 45 degrees, take a picture, then its done. The XML file in the watched folder will be deleted and our app is ready for next XML file to be saved to folder.
The XML file must be saved to a folder in the same PC that is running the Pamco application.

==============================XML template explainer
this is the text for the XML template.An example XML file is in the drop box mentioned above.
<?xml version=”1.0″ encoding=”utf-8″?><XMLAutoRun> <WorkingDirectory>C:\afolder</WorkingDirectory> <OrderNumber>123</OrderNumber> <NumberOfShots>2</NumberOfShots> <DegreesOfRotation>45</DegreesOfRotation> <TableSpeed>10000</TableSpeed> <TableAcceleration>8000</TableAcceleration> <TableStopOk>500</TableStopOk></XMLAutoRun>
Our app will create a folder in your PC as directed by line :<WorkingDirectory>C:\afolder</WorkingDirectory> <OrderNumber>123</OrderNumber>
The images from the camera will go here.
When we get the new version of the XML version the whole camera thing will be gone and a new XML template issued.
Table speed and acceleration can be reduced.Recommend not increasing as the motor will skip or not keep up.
