A control system for SAGA Synchrotron Light Source has been designed. The system consists of PC-IOC with off-the-shelf IO devices, console computer, and network. Industrial IO device, FieldPoint (National Instruments) and PLC with Ethernet module (Yokogawa, FA-M3) will be employed as the off-the-shelf IO devices. Ethernet channel access for PC, ActiveX CA, will be used for the network protocol. The server-client applications will mainly be developed by LabView. Field tests for prototype systems have been done in the KU-FEL Linac at IAE, Kyoto University and the storage ring TERAS at National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST). Those tests show that the system is suitable for a small-to-medium size control system.
