  The construction of the MAX IV facility has started and user operation is scheduled to commence 2015. The facility is comprised of two storage rings optimized for different wavelength ranges, and a linac-based short pulse facility. In this paper the RF systems for the two storage rings are described. The RF systems will be based on either tetrode or solid state amplifiers working at 100 MHz. Circulators will be used to give isolation between cavity and power amplifier. The main cavities are of normal conducting, entire copper, capacity loaded type, where the present cavities at MAX-lab has served as prototypes. For the MAX IV ring operation it is essential to elongate bunches, in order to minimize the influence of intra beam scattering on beam transverse emittances. For this, 3rd harmonic passive (Landau-) cavities are employed. These are of similar type as the main cavities, mainly because the capacity loaded type has the advantage of pushing higher order modes to relatively high frequencies compared to pill-box cavities. Digital low level RF systems will be used, bearing in mind the possibility of post mortem analysis.
