 Mandate

 
 
The Controls Group is responsible for the specification, design, procurement, integration, installation, commissioning and operation of the controls infrastructure for all CERN Accelerators, their transfer lines and the Experimental Areas. Support is also provided to the technical infrastructure services that rely on standard controls facilities provided by the group.

The domain of responsibility extends from the embedded real-time front-end computers in collaboration with the equipment groups up to the applications software for operations developed in collaboration with the operations group on the basis of a set of standardised hardware and software controls components.

In this context, the controls group provides general services like front-end software framework, general machine and beam synchronous timing generation and distribution, signal observation system, communication middleware, alarms, surveillance and monitoring, general logging facilities and data management.

Other tasks for the group include support for a number of services to the whole Beams Department such as data management, desktop support, CERN computing resource registration, security policy, electronic instrument repair, calibration and testing.
