SOLEIL diffractometer, manufactured by the French company SYMETRIE* and complementarily funded by a <Ile de France> region project (DIM Oxymore) gathering SIRIUS beamline and other laboratories, features an in-vacuum 4-circles goniometer and two hexapods. The first hexapod is used for the alignment of the vacuum vessel, and the second one for the alignment of the sample stage which is mounted on the 4-circles diffractometer. In order to integrate efficiently this complex mechanical experimental station into SOLEIL control architecture based on TANGO and DeltaTau motion controller, SOLEIL and SYMETRIE work in a close collaboration. Synchronization of the different elements of the diffractometer is a key issue in this work to get a good sphere of confusion thanks to corrections done by the in vacuum hexapod. This paper details this collaboration, status of the project in terms of control system capabilities and the results of the first tests.
