Program mar(345)dtb is property of marXperts GmbH. Usage is restricted to users and customers of marXperts GmbH.
Programs mar345dtb and mardtb are used synomously within this document. As far as the goniostat hardware functions are concerned, they work exactly the same way and share the same code. The only difference is that program mar345dtb is exclusively used for supporting the mar345 image plate detector while program mardtb supports the EIGER and PILATUS3 detector by DECTRIS. The mardtb flavour requires some additional system libraries that program mar345dtb does not need. In order to run DECTRIS detectors, the program requires a license file that is issued by marXperts GmbH for specific installations.
