  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.

TPPB42 The Selection, Development and Application of PLC Solutions for the Diamond Light Source 256

  Diamond Light Source set out to address a wide range of control system requirements, from process control to interlocking with a minimum number of PLC types. This resulted in standardization of PLCs from just two manufacturers. Siemens was chosen for high-end process control and Omron for a variety of other applications, including interlocking and protection. These were then applied to a large number of applications, which have been addressed wherever possible using standard solutions. The details of this approach, and solutions managed through it, including procurement of turnkey systems by industry, and how future obsolescence is being addressed are all described.
