The Experimental Physics and Industrial Control System (EPICS) is a set of software platform developed by a consortium of research facilities around the world to provide control and data acquisition functions to large scale accelerator and radio telescope facilities. EPICS has also been used in other applications included medical accelerators and some industrial applications. In addition to low-level control EPICS also provides SCADA control functions for these types of facilities.
Mighty Oaks team members have worked with EPICS for over twenty years both within national science facilities in Canada and as external contractors. We have also provided advisory and consulting services to facilities in the Americas, Europe and Asia.
In Canada EPICS has been used at three national facilities: (1) The Canadian Light Source at the University of Saskatchewan in Saskatoon; (2) TRIUMF at the University of British Columba and (3) the former NRU Neutron Scattering Facility at Chalk River Laboratories in Chalk River Ontario.
