Abstract An automated tool for converting MATLAB based controls algorithms into C codes, executable directly on EPICS process control computers (IOCs), was developed at the Paul Scherrer Institute (PSI). Based on this tool, several high level control applications were embedded into the IOCs, which are directly connected to the control system sensors and actuators. Such embedded applications have significantly reduced the network traffic, and thus the data handling latency, which increased the reliability of the control system. The paper concentrates on the most important components of the automated tool and the performance of MATLAB algorithms converted by this tool.
