Run this example from the command line with:

node eg/expander-MUXSHIELD2-analog-read.js
var Barcli = require("barcli");
var five = require("johnny-five");
var board = new five.Board({
  repl: false,
  debug: false

board.on("ready", function() {
  var bars = {
    a: new Barcli({ label: "IO1-15", range: [0, 1023] }),
    b: new Barcli({ label: "IO2-15", range: [0, 1023] }),

  var virtual = new five.Board.Virtual(
    new five.Expander("MUXSHIELD2")

  var a = new five.Sensor({
    pin: "IO1-15",
    board: virtual

  a.on("change", function() {

  var b = new five.Sensor({
    pin: "IO2-15",
    board: virtual

  b.on("change", function() {
