Emstat3 blue series - how to install pspython SDK module?

Category: Software
Software Version: PSTrace 5.9

Dear Support Team,

I hope this message finds you well. I am writing regarding an issue I am experiencing while attempting to install the PSPython SDK for my EmStat3 Blue potentiostat. I am trying to code the PSPython SDK to control the EmStat3 potentiostat, generate a square wave when triggered by an external TTL signal from the spectrometer. 

I have encountered difficulties during the installation process, and I would greatly appreciate your help.

Issue Description: I have downloaded the PSPython SDK folder from the website, and I am attempting to install it as a Python package so that I can control my EmStat3 Blue potentiostat using Python scripts. However, I have encountered the following problem:

When I attempt to install the SDK using the pip install . command in the SDK folder directory, I receive the error message: "ERROR: Directory '.' is not installable. Neither '' nor 'pyproject.toml' found."

  • PSPython SDK Folder: C:\Users\r01pg22\Downloads\PSPythonSDK and  R:\COPS\sncs\Electrochemistry\Pavi\PSPythonSDK\pspython both got me same error.
  • Python Environment: Python 3.8 - PyCharm
  • Operating System: Windows 10

Steps Taken: I have tried various approaches to install the SDK locally, but none have been successful. I attempted to mention the directory (pspython_folder = r"R:\COPS\sncs\Electrochemistry\Pavi\PSPythonSDK\pspython") in the code but the issue persists. 

I kindly request your help in resolving this issue. If there are specific installation instructions or workarounds for installing the PSPython SDK locally, I would greatly appreciate your guidance.

Please let me know if you require any further information or if there are specific details about my setup that would be helpful in diagnosing and addressing this problem. I could not find proper documentation on how to install this and read me.txt file had limited information. 

Best regards,
