  A new PLC-based beam-charge interlock system is under development for radiation safety at the KEKB injector linac. This system restricts a prescribed amount of integrated beam charges passing through at several locations along the linac for machine protection, and it also monitors the amount of integrated beam charges injecting to four different storage rings (KEKB e+ & e- storage rings, PF, PF-AR) at the linac beam switchyard. The beam charges delivered from an electron gun are measured with the PLC-based beam-charge interlock system. This system comprises wall-current monitors, beam-charge integration circuits, and a PLC-based control system. This system generates and sends beam abort signals directly to another radiation safety control system with hard-wire cables when the amount of the integrated beam charges is beyond the prescribed threshold level. In this report we describe the new design of the PLC-based beam-charge interlock system, and especially several software developments and performances implemented on the PLC are described.
