AB - ESO is in the process of designing a new instrument control application framework for the ELT project. During this process, we have used the experience in HW control gained from the first and second generation of VLT instruments that have been in operation for almost 20 years. The preliminary outcome of this analysis is a library of Statecharts models illustrating the behaviour of some of the most commonly used devices in telescope and instrument control systems. This paper describes the architectural aspects taken into consideration when designing the models such as HW/SW state representation, common/specialized behaviour, and failure management. An extension to Harel's formalism to facilitate reusability by dynamic creation of orthogonal regions is also proposed. The paper details the behaviour of some devices like shutters, lamps and motors together with the rationale behind the modelling choices. A mapping of the models to a concrete implementation using real HW components is suggested. Although these models have been designed following the principles of our conceptual architecture, they are still generic and platform independent, so they can be easily reused in other projects.
