  The HIT (Heidelberg Ion Beam Therapy) Centre is the first heavy ion therapy accelerator in Europe, which is operated by the university hospital of Heidelberg, Germany. In accordance with the german radiological protection ordinance, a personnel safety system (PSS) was installed during the comissioning of the accelerator. Main functions of the PSS are radiation protection, gate control, emergency stop handling, change of the state of the protection areas and safety interlocks. The PSS is a stand alone part of the accelerator control system and consists of several OPC servers and a special designed GUI for the control room. The installation of the PSS was started in June 2006 and finished in March 2008. This presentation will report on the concept and realization of the PSS.

  The HIT ACS is a modular, PC and front-end controller (with FPGAs) based accelerator control system developed by the company Eckelmann AG, Wiesbaden, Germany in cooperation with GSI and HIT. It consists of a database and several central applications running on Windows 2k3 server machines as well as a dozen control room client PCs for the GUIs, and a few hundred front-end device controlling units (DCUs). Due to strict timing requirements in the ms and partly μs range, communications during an acceleration cycle are done in real-time via RTB (Real Time Bus) and real-time shared memory components on the main control server. We show the overall structure of the ACS network and outline the relation of the component devices and the Ethernet and RTB communications between them.

  Shortly before first tumour patients will be treated with high-energy ions at the facility in Heidelberg we give an overview of the control systems special characteristics, current status and remaining functionality to completion. The control system was designed by GSI but has been developed by an all-industrial partner. At each of the three therapy rooms more than 20000 combinations of beam energy, intensity and focus can be requested by the therapy control system. The commissioning for carbon and proton ion beams has already been conducted by GSI. We show how different operating conditions are implemented to ensure at the same time the possibility for experimental research while beam properties already verified within medical test procedures must not be altered without following predefined workflows. Therefore all system and device parameters as well as all set values that possibly change beam properties for patient treatment have to be securely locked or e.g. integrated into checksums. We will also focus on several minor and a few major changes in functionality that had to be implemented to conform to the requirements that originated by the risk assessment of the control system.
