Accelerator control systems should be flexible and open for future improvements. The introduction of a field bus based I/O system is a step in this direction. At BESSY most of the accelerator devices are interfaced using the BESSY modular I/O system and the Controller Area Network (CAN), which provides excellent noise immunity and a sophisticated, reliable(More)
The BESSY II control system takes advantage of the mature stage of the EPICS toolkit and its contributed generic applications. Development activities have been focussed on three aspects. (1) Dominant role is given to device control IO, based on distributed local intelligence of embedded controllers and CAN fieldbus networks. (2) Cooperative development of(More)
