  The first beam lines addition to the SARAF facility was completed in phase I and introduced new hardware to be controlled. This article will describe the beam lines vacuum, magnets and diagnostics control systems and the design methodology used to achieve a reliable and reusable control system. The vacuum control systems of the accelerator and beam lines have been integrated into one vacuum control system which controls all the vacuum control hardware for both the accelerator and beam lines. The new system fixes legacy issues and is designed for modularity and simple configuration. Several types of magnetic lenses have been introduced to the new beam line to control the beam direction and optimally focus it on the target. The control system was designed to be modular so that magnets can be quickly and simply inserted or removed. The diagnostics systems control the diagnostics devices used in the beam lines including data acquisition and measurement. Some of the older control systems were improved and redesigned using modern control hardware and software. The above systems were successfully integrated in the accelerator and are used during beam activation.
