  For PETRA III, the high-brilliance third-generation light source being built now at DESY in Hamburg, Germany, we have established a new hardware development standard for controller designs. It includes communication on the fieldbus level, hardware interfacing to fieldbuses, and a communication application software layer for device firmware. The CAN bus and CANopen protocol were chosen as a primary fieldbus standard, and three branches of generic CANopen-compliant interfacing modules were designed for rapid controller hardware development. For fieldbus management, configuration, and integration with the TINE control system*, the generic TICOM (TINE-Based CANopen Manager) software was written. This document gives an overview of our fieldbus hardware development standard and of the key features of TICOM. It also describes the first applications built on top of the standard.

  TINE (Three-fold Integrated Networking Environment) has been the Control System in use at HERA for some time, plays a major role in the Pre-accelerators at DESY, DORIS, FLASH, PITZ (Zeuthen), EMBL-Hamburg, GKSS-Hamburg, PF Beamline (KEK), and is the designated control system for the new third-generation light source PETRA3. TINE has always emphasized both performance and flexibility. For instance, using the multicast capabilities of TINE, state-of-the-art, near real-time video transmission is possible. At the same time, developers have a large toolkit and variety of software solutions at their disposal, and in general on their favorite platform and programming language. Code-generation wizards are available for rapid development of TINE servers, whereas intelligent GUI components such as ACOP(*) aid in the development of either “rich” or “simple” client applications. The most recent major release brought with it a bundle of new features and improvements. We give here an overview of the TINE control system in general, what’s new in particular, and focus on those features not available in other mainstream control systems, such as EPICS or TANGO.
