EPICS Related Information in Linac and KEKB Controls

[Local info]   [Devices / Software]   [Operating systems]   [Meeting archives]   [Bottom]  

EPICS was selected as the base of the KEKB/SuperKEKB control system in 1995, after the discussion since 1994. It was studied as well at Linac since 1994, and has been incorporated on to the original linac control system with several gateway approaches. Since then, most of accelerator facilities at KEK are controled with EPICS.

EPICS email list information

Email list "epics-users" for external EPICS users in Japanese by default is available. Please ask Furukawa <epics-users-request@ml.post.kek.jp> to be added on to "epics-users". Some of information discussed on the list is summarized at Epics-User Jp web page by T.Obina

Email list "tech-talk" is available for comprehensive EPICS discussion. Please look in EPICS Tech-talk Mailing List web page.

(Email lists "EPICS-Gr" for internal EPICS developers was closed.)
