1) Check whether FACET has cameras already that you can borrow for your shift time. (See FAQ " What cameras are present at FACET?")
2) If not, check whether SLAC controls groups support a camera that meets your needs. It's relatively little effort for us to bring in a new camera to FACET if there is support already developed at SLAC. (See FAQ "What cameras can be integrated (are supported) at FACET?")
3) Finally, if you need to introduce a camera for which there is no existing support, we can engage our controls group to develop the support. It typically takes 2 weeks (full time) for an engineer to add support for a new Camlink module. If it is a new GigE camera (Allied Vision or Basler), it is usually just a few days work.
