  The Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt (PTB), the German national metrology institute, has set up in close cooperation with BESSY a low-energy electron storage ring next to the BESSY II site. The new storage ring, named "Metrology Light Source"(MLS), is mainly dedicated to metrology and technological developments in the UV and VUV spectral range. Its commissioning started in March 2007. The MLS control system is based on the Experimental Physics and Industrial Control System (EPICS) toolkit. Design and implementation choices guided by the experiences with the BESSY II control system have been flanked by other techniques and new approaches where needed and appropriate. The presentation introduces the MLS and discusses design and implementation of its control system.  
RPPA37 Experiences: Configuration Management with a Generic RDB Data-Model 594

  A new RDB data-model has been introduced at BESSY to enable a more generic approach to store and handle configuration data. Stored data ranges from global hardware-structure and -information through building logical hierarchies to configuration information for monitoring applications as well as signal-level information. This information is used to configure the front-end computers as well as the generic and higher-level tools like alarm-handler and archiver. New applications at BESSY are developed with this generic RDB data-model in mind. First experiences with real-life applications as well as a set of tools for entering, maintenance, and retrieval of configuration data are described in this paper.
