The BAM-2 automounter in use at MAcCHESS beamline is controlled primarily through the ADX data collection interface, and a separate BAM-2 interface provides access to additional features.

Productive use of an automounter requires the appropriate equipment.

MacCHESS maintains a few loaner kits for users who would like to try out the automounter, but do not have equipment of their own.

It is possible to collect data using the MacCHESS beamline from a remote networked connection.
