  Starting with the Linac in 2005, the commissioning of the Diamond Light Source accelerators and photon beamlines, together with their related control systems, progressed to an aggressive program such that as of early in 2007, the facility was available for first users with a suite of beamlines and experiment stations. The implementation and commissioning of the control system to meet the overall project objectives are presented. The current status of the control system, including ongoing developments for electron-beam orbit stability and future photon beamline requirements, are also described.

TPPA10 Development of Photon Beamline and Motion Control Software at Diamond Light Source 108

  Diamond Light Source has opened its first eight photon beamlines to the user community this year. We have developed the control software for the beamlines in parallel, adopting a common set of standards, tools, and designs across all beamlines. At the core of the control system is the EPICS toolset and the widespread use of the Delta Tau PMAC motion controller. The latter is a complex, but flexible controller that has met our needs both for simple and complex systems. We describe how we have developed the standard EPICS software for this controller so that we can use the existing EPICS interfaces, but also enables us to use the more advanced features of the controller.
