net*TIMS: Hands-on hardware experiments delivered at a distance via LAN or Internet
EMONA Instruments is the manufacturer of the TIMS range of Telecommunications Learning products. The building block approach to making laboratory experiments makes TIMS products both easy and quick to use as well as maximising the students' learning experience in the little time available for laboratory work.
The TIMS approach to teaching telecommunications is also central to both 'net*TIMS' (Internet delivered hardware experiments) and 'TutorTIMS' Simulation software.
net*TIMS Internet delivered hardware experiments for lab access 24 hours, 7 days.

In a net*TIMS experiment, the student has real-time control of every module's knob and switch, and rapidly sees the effect of any front panel adjustments made.

The 'hands-on' approach builds student confidence and makes the experiment satisfying as the students are free to explore and learn by making mistakes. When they explore more, they learn more.
Enjoy your experimenting with TIMS.
TutorTIMS Simulator: for pre lab learning EMONA
TutorTIMS simulator is a block diagram approach to building telecommunications experiments, based on a continuously running DSP engine for immediate results. Supported by a massive suite of documented analog and digital experiments, your students can build and test concepts before coming to class and attending laboratory sessions and tutorials.
TutorTIMS is available as a campus-wide site license so that ALL of your students can have the ability to prepare for class as well as further experiment in their own time.
