Galil Now Offers EPICS Driver Baselines
- Posted on June 27, 2014
EPICS stands for Experimental Physics and Industrial Control System. It is a set of open source, distributed software tools used extensively for scientific instruments such as particle accelerators, telescopes, and other large-scale experimental installations. Using EPICS, scientists are able to network together arbitrarily complex systems of nodes, such as motion controllers, PLCs, instrumentation, and other software and hardware agents. Using a read/write protocol called Channel Access, the Input/Output controllers (IOCs), can interact while providing high-level functionality and interaction for sophisticated physics applications.
