  The NSLS II project started control system development in 2007 and completed commissioning in 2015. New hardware, tools, and applications were developed throughout the project to meet the project goals. Significant developments included the fast orbit feedback system, service based physics applications, relational database tools, and an integrated operator environment Control System Studio (CSS). This paper will discuss the results of the developments that were undertaken and their use for the accelerator and beam lines, commissioning results, and lessons learned along the way.

  EPICS version 4 is a set of software modules that add to the base of the EPICS toolkit for advanced control systems. Version 4 adds the possibility of process variable values of structured data, an introspection interface for dynamic typing plus some standard types, high-performance streaming, and a new front-end processing database for managing complex data I/O. A synchronous RPC-style facility has also been added so that the EPICS environment supports service-oriented architecture. We introduce EPICS and the new features of version 4. Then we describe selected deployments, particularly for high-throughput experiment data transport, experiment data management, beam dynamics and infrastructure data.
