The control software framework called EPICS (Experimental Physics and Industrial Control System) provides an architecture for control system software to be constructed as a scalable, distributed database of control components. It is based on industry standards at all levels and includes an extensive set of tools and clients that are portable across all major architectures (including Unix, Linux and Windows operating systems). EPICS software has been used on many major high-energy physics facilities as well as on large astronomical telescopes.
The aim of this page is to share information and resources about the works and projects carried on by the group based on EPICS, trying to push as much as possible the collaboration among people and Institutes.
While at the beginning the team was devoted to R&D and prototyping small applications for experimental groups, actually the EPICS Group is involved in different International and National Projects:
- IFMIF Project - International Fusion Materials Irradiation Facility
- ESS Project - European Spallation Source
- SPES Project - Selective Production of Exotic Species
All the materal and resources sharable will be stored in these pages. In any case if you would like to have more information or details, feel free to contact us:
