Abstract Users visiting scientific installations aim to collect the best quality data frequently under time pressure. They look for complementary techniques at different sites and when they arrive to one they have limited time to understand the data acquisition architecture. In these conditions, the availability of generic and common interfaces to the experimental channels and measurements improve the user experience regarding the programming and configuration of the experiment. Here we present solutions to the data acquisition challenges provided by the Sardana scientific SCADA suite. In one experimental session the same detector may be employed in different modes e.g., getting the data stream when aligning the sample or the stage, getting a single time/monitor controlled exposure and finally running the measurement process like a step or continuous scan. The complexity of the acquisition setup increases with the number of detectors being simultaneously used and even more depending on the applied synchronization. In this work we present recently enriched Sardana interfaces and optimized processes and conclude with the roadmap of further enhancements.
