We present the public code ScannerS–2 that performs parameter scans and checks parameter points in theories beyond the Standard Model (BSM) with extended scalar sectors. ScannerS incorporates theoretical and experimental constraints from many different sources in order to judge whether a parameter point is allowed or excluded at approximately . The BSM models implemented in ScannerS include many popular BSM models such as singlet extensions, different versions of the Two-Higgs-Doublet Model, or the different phases of the Next-to Two-Higgs-Doublet Model. The ScannerS framework allows straightforward extensions by additional constraints and BSM models.
