We have built a hardware module which acts as a process simulator. We have connected this hardware to a MAQ20 and, using our website which utilizes the MAQ20 Python API, you can interact directly with the hardware using your browser. You can even witness your interaction via a live video feed directly from a camera pointed at the actual hardware in Tucson. Schedule a session now and you can take full control of the hardware.
Note: This demo is best viewed on a desktop/laptop browser and is not recommended for mobile devices such as tablets or smart phones.
