  During the last two years, triggered by the construction of the XRD2 beamline, and to comply with the top-up operations, a complete refurbishment of the Elettra Super Conducting Wiggler (SCW) has been carried out. Alongside with the mechanical, cryogenic and electrical components, also the electronics, the control and interlock systems have been upgraded. The MVME5110 PowerPC single board computer, which is a standard in the Elettra control system, has been adopted, as well as RS232 communication modules, analog to digital converters and digital I/O lines. In order to cope with the high output power of the SCW, up to18 KW, the interlock system, protecting both the wiggler and the beamline front-end, has been completely redesigned. The control system software has been re-written from scratch using the TANGO software framework. The complete system has been tested during the second half of 2014 and is now fully operational.
