class ophyd.device.Device(prefix='', *, name, kind=None, read_attrs=None, configuration_attrs=None, parent=None, **kwargs)

Base class for device objects

This class provides attribute access to one or more Signals, which can be a mixture of read-only and writable. All must share the same base_name.

prefix : str, optional

The PV prefix for all components of the device

name : str, keyword only

The name of the device (as will be reported via read()`

kind : a member of the Kind IntEnum

(or equivalent integer), optional Default is Kind.normal. See Kind for options.

read_attrs : sequence of attribute names

DEPRECATED: the components to include in a normal reading (i.e., in read())

configuration_attrs : sequence of attribute names

DEPRECATED: the components to be read less often (i.e., in read_configuration()) and to adjust via configure()

parent : instance or None, optional

The instance of the parent device, if applicable

lazy_wait_for_connection : bool

When instantiating a lazy signal upon first access, wait for it to connect before returning control to the user. See also the context manager helpers: wait_for_lazy_connection and do_not_wait_for_lazy_connection.
