AB - The ASTRI SST-2M telescope is a prototype proposed for the Small Size class of Telescopes of the Cherenkov Telescope Array (CTA). The ASTRI prototype adopts innovative solutions for the optical system, which poses stringent requirements in the design and development of the Telescope Control System (TCS), whose task is the coordination of the telescope devices. All the subsystems are managed independently by the related controllers, which are developed through a PC-Based technology and making use of the TwinCAT3 environment for the software PLC. The TCS is built upon the ALMA Common Software framework and uses the OPC-UA protocol for the interface with the telescope components, providing a simplified full access to the capabilities offered by the telescope subsystems for normal operation, testing, maintenance and calibration activities. In this contribution we highlight how the ASTRI approach for the design, development and implementation of the TCS has made the prototype a stand-alone intelligent and active machine, providing also an easy way for the integration in an array configuration such as the future ASTRI mini-array proposed to be installed at the southern site of the CTA.
