Motion Solutions has designed and developed a motor-control system for the Australian Synchrotron.

The motor controllers are from Galil USA and those with integrated drive units use Parker drives.

The Galil motor controllers have been tightly integrated with the Synchrotron Experimental Physics and Industrial Control System (EPICS).

The EPICS driver written for the Galil controller interfaces with the motor record and a collection of standard EPICS records.

Standard records provide control/monitor interfaces for features that the motor record does not support.

The EPICS driver is compatible with all motor controllers in the Galil range and has a native EPICS driver/device layer, rather than an Asyn device layer.

The motor controller can read two encoders per motor at all times and allows swapping between primary and secondary encoders at run time, while a standard motor record in EPICS only supports one encoder per motor.
