Often diagnostic tools are packaged with proprietary software and it is challenging to integrate with native environment. The HighFinesse Angstrom Wavemeter used at OPPIS experiment for laser wavelength measurement is controlled using commercial software not supported by RHIC style controls. This paper will describe the integration of such a complex system  and use of python for cross platform data acquisition.

The Rare Isotope Science Project at the Institute for Basic Science constructs the rare isotope accelerator (RAON) facility in South Korea. The stable ion beam as an ion source for the RAON accelerator could be generated by ECR ion source system. Therefore, it is mandatory to build ECR ion source control system that could be integrated into an accelerator control system easily. The vacuum control system is an essential part of the ECR control system, because of one vacuum chamber among three different voltage stages (ground, 50 kV, and 80 kV). The preliminary design and implementation of vacuum control system for the ECR ion source will be discussed. It is planned to use a PLC in order to communicate with a vacuum gauge and turbo pump controllers among multi-voltage stages (ground, 50 kV and 80 kV) by optical fibers connection. The PLC system has two major components: a digital I/O module that provides power to each component and standard RS-232 modules which are connected with the gauge & pump controllers. In addition, its extension plan to integrate the vacuum control system into the RAON accelerator control system based on system the EPICS framework, will be discussed.

  The C-ADS Injector-I is an experimental proton machine in IHEP. An interlock system based on redundancy PLC was developed for machine protection and personnel safety. Device status, radiation dose, temperature of cavities and chambers are collected for machine state judge and interlock. A MPS (Machine Protection System) work together with the interlock system in the control loop, and protect the machine in four levels for different situation.  
TUC3O02 Design, Implementation and Setup of the Fast Protection System for CSNS proton, neutron, extraction, timing 1

  Design, implementation and setup of a FPGA and RocketIO based FPS(Fast Protection System) for CSNS(China Spallation Neutron Source) is introduced. This system is a compact design with high speed serial transmission techniques. RocketIOs (or MGTs) and optical transceivers are used to transmit the interlock signals, with each link to carry 16 signals. Ground loop problems are avoided since the use of fibers. Dedicated firmware is developed for the auto-working of the serial links when both fibers are plugged in under power-on state. A real-time online heart-beat function is also implemented for each interlock signal to make sure the overall safety of the system. The whole system is under installation and will be put into use soon part by part according to the progress of the civil construction and equipment installation.

A Machine Protection System (MPS) is one of the important systems for the 100-MeV proton linear accelerator of the Korea Multi-purpose Accelerator Complex (KOMAC). The MPS is required to protect the very sensitive and essential equipment during machine operation. The purpose of the MPS is to shut off the beam when the Radio-Frequency (RF) and ion source are unstable or a beam loss monitor detects high activation. The MPS includes a variety of sources, such as beam loss, RF and high voltage converter modulator faults, fast closing valves for vacuum window leaks at the beam lines and so on. The MPS consists of a hard-wired protection for fast interlocks and a soft-wired protection for slow interlock. The hardware-based MPS has been fabricated, and the requirement has been satisfied with the results within 3 μs. The Experimental Physics and Industrial Control System (EPICS) control system has been also designed to monitor and control the MPS using a Programmable Logic Controller (PLC). This paper describes the design and implementation of the MPS for the 100-MeV proton linear accelerator of the Korea Multi-purpose Accelerator Complex (KOMAC).
