The National Synchrotron Light Source II (NSLS-II) uses extruded aluminium chambers as an integral part of the vacuum system. Prior to installation in the Storage Ring all dipole and multipole chamber assemblies must be tested to ensure vacuum integrity. A significant part of the chamber test requires a full bakeout of the assembly, as well as control and monitoring of the titanium sublimation pumps (TSP), non-evaporable getter pumps (NEG) and ion pumps (IP). Data that will be acquired by the system during bakeouts includes system temperature, vacuum pressure, residual gas analyzer scans, ion pump current, TSP operation and NEG activation. This data will be used as part of the acceptance process of the chambers prior to the installation in the storage ring tunnel. This paper presents the design and implementation of the vacuum bakeout control, as well as related vacuum control issues.
