EPICS INTERFACE AND CONTROL OF NSLS-II RESIDUAL GAS ANALYZER SYSTEM

Residual Gas Analyzers (RGAs) have been widely used in accelerator vacuum systems for monitoring and vacuum diagnostics. The National Synchrotron Light Source II (NSLS-II) vacuum system adopts Hiden RC-100 RGA which supports remote electronics, thus allowing real-time diagnostics with beam operation as well as data archiving and off-line analysis. This paper describes the interface and operation of these RGAs with the EPICS based control system.
