  At PSI there are two facilities with proton cyclotron accelerators. The machine control system for PROSCAN which is used for medical patient therapy, is running with EPICS. The High Intensity Proton Accelerator (HIPA) is mostly running under the in-house control system ACS. Dedicated parts of HIPA are under EPICS control. Both these facilities are configured through an Oracle database application suite. This paper presents the concepts and tools which are used to configure the control system directly from the database-stored configurations. Such an approach has advantages which contribute for better control system reliability, overview and consistency.

  The Free Electron Laser (SwissFEL) Test Facility is an important milestone for realization of a new SwissFEL facility. The first beam in the Test Facility was produced on the 24th of August 2010 which inaugurated the operation of the Injector. Since then, beam quality in various aspects has been greatly improved. This paper presents the current status of the Test Facility and is focused on the control system related issues which led to the successful commissioning. In addition, the technical challenges and opportunities in view of the future SwissFEL facility are discussed.
