  The new Gamma Beam System (GBS) under construction in Magurele (RO) by the consortium EuroGammas led by INFN, as part of the ELI-NP project, can provide gamma rays that open new possibilities for nuclear photonics and nuclear physics. In the ELI-GBS, gamma rays are produced by means of Compton back-scattering to get mono-chromaticity (0,1% bandwidth), a high flux (1013 photon/s the highest in the world), tunable directions and energies up to 19 MeV. Such gamma beam characteristic is obtained when a high-intensity laser collides a high-brightness electron-beam with energies up to 720 MeV. In order to increase the gamma beam flux, the electron beam operates at a repetition rate of 100 Hz in a multi-bunch mode: trains of 32 bunches, 16 ns apart, interact with the laser pulse recirculated 32 times through the interaction point. The EPICS Control System collects data from all sub-systems, constantly monitoring to ensure the safety of the ELI-GBS facility. This paper describes all the aspects of the ELI-GBS turn-key Control System, such as hardware integration, micro-bunches diagnostics, high level applications, the data network and the pico-second timing system.
