  abstract     = {{The Kirkpatrick-Baez (KB) mirror system is composed of a vertical focusing mirror (VFM) and a horizontal fo-cusing mirror. Both concave mirrors focus the X-ray beam by reflecting it at small grazing angles. The relocation of this system from UVX XDS beamline to Sirius EMA beamline facilitated a full revision of the motion control system, whose controller was migrated to Omron Delta Tau Power Brick LV. The beam focus is controlled by bending the mirrors through camshaft mechanisms cou-pled to low current Faulhaber motors. Although the am-plifier is designed for higher currents, controller settings allowed the use of lower currents. Another improvement made is the ability to drive both bender motors in gantry mode and still control the lag between them. Each bender has a capacitive sensor to monitor the position of the center of the mirror, which is read by the analog input of the controller and made available by EPICS [1]. The VFM is supported by a tripod and a new kinematics was devel-oped to reference the center of the mirror as the point of control. This paper presents the implementation of the new motion control KB system and its results at Sirius EMA beamline.}},
