The RITA2 instrument is a triple axis spectrometer installed at the Swiss Spallation Neutron Source SINQ. Its electronics dates back to the 80’s and required a renovation. As a part of the upgrade program RITA2 has been equipped with 2nd generation electronics and data acquisition based on event streaming. In the framework of the BrightnESS project the DAQ software has been upgraded to make use of 0MQ as a transport layer and tested making use of event generators during SINQ shutdown. This procedure has proved to be a viable approach to develop solutions for the ESS.
