Workshop 11

Thursday, May 4
Bldg. 401, Rm. A5000
1:30 pm - 5:30 pm

Beam Line Controls at the APS

Organizers:
Pete Jemian and John Maclean, Advanced Photon Source


After ten years of operations and experience, a variety of beam line control systems are in use at the APS. The majority of beam lines base their controls on EPICS, while others have developed their own control protocols or adopted commercial control solutions. The aim of this workshop is to present the current state of beam line controls at the Advanced Photon Source as well as to outline future directions. Speakers will address the general topics indicated below.
