  At the ISAC radioactive beam facility, the superconducting Linac was commissioned, and several experimental beam lines were added. The paper will describe the additions to the EPICS-based control system, issues with integration of third-party systems, as well as integration of accelerator controls with experiment controls.  
TPPB35 The Control System for the TITAN Experiment at ISAC 238

  The TITAN experiment at the ISAC radioactive beam facility consists of an RF cooler system, a Magnetic Penning Trap (MPET), and an Electron Beam Ion Trap (EBIT). These three systems may run together or independently. This paper describes the EPICS-based TITAN control system, which was modeled after the ISAC control system to facilitate integration. Both software and hardware configurations will be described, with emphasis on pulsed diagnostics and the pulse distribution system for synchronizing the traps in different operation modes.  
RPPB25 Live Capfast Schematics in the ISAC Control System 662

  The Capfast schematic editor is used to design EPICS IOC runtime databases in the EPICS-based control system of the ISAC radioactive beam facility. This graphical tool provides a view of the database with strong visual cues about the functional behavior of the database elements and their interrelationships, modularity, and hierarchy. The EDM display manager tool is used for the Human-Machine-Interface, providing a graphical view of the accelerator state to machine operators. This paper describes a new tool, Sch2Edl, which combines some of the functionality of Capfast and EDM. Sch2Edl creates a view of the runtime database in a format geared toward the system developer/tester/debugger. Sch2Edl is a perl script that translates a set of Capfast schematic files into a corresponding set of EDM screens. The visual representation of the runtime database on the EDM display is nearly identical to the static Capfast views and hierarchies, but incorporates the display of real-time data. This allows software developers to examine and modify some aspects of a working runtime database in an environment that is rich in visual information.
