Control and Automation


The main objective of this internal development program is the development of hardware and software for the control and automation of equipment of the beamlines of the synchrotron light source UVX of the Brazilian Synchrotron Light Laboratory (LNLS) and the new synchrotron light source Sirius.

The great variety of equipment in a beamline require the movement of mechanical parts – in a soft, precise, repeatable and synchronized manner – controlled by many devices. Therefore, it is essential to integrate all the equipment in order to have full control of the beamline.
