  The EPICS framework was chosen for the Spiral2 project control system [1] in 2007. Four institutes are involved in the command control: Ganil (Caen), IPHC (Strasbourg) and IRFU (Saclay) and LPSC (Grenoble), the IRFU institute being in charge of the Injector controls. This injector includes two ECR sources (one for deuterons and one for A/q= 3 ions) with their associated low-energy beam transport lines (LEBTs). The deuteron source is installed at Saclay and the A/q=3 ion source at Grenoble. Both lines will merge before injecting beam in a RFQ cavity for pre acceleration. This paper presents the control system for both injector beamlines with their diagnostics (Faraday cups, ACCT/DCCT, profilers, emittancemeters) and slits. This control relies on COTS VME boards and an EPICS software platform. Modbus/TCP protocol is also used with COTS devices like power supplies and Siemens PLCs. The Injector graphical user interface is based on Edm while the port to CSS BOY is under evaluation; also high level applications are developed in Java. This paper also emphasizes the EPICS development for new industrial VME boards ADAS ICV108/178 with a sampling rate ranging from 100 K Samples/s to 1.2 M Samples/s. This new software is used for the beam intensity measurement by diagnostics and the acquisition of sources.
