The MLZ provides a number of different instruments – tailored to different scientific problems – to scientists from all over the world.
As control-suite NICOS is established, providing a common user interface with scripting capabilities and data collection. The hardware abstraction is mostly implemented in 'entangle', a TANGO device server written in Python, but also EPICS, SECoP, and selected other protocols are in use. Finally, a PLC interface specification effectively allows PnP of hardware.
