MADOCA uses equipment control software called Equipment Manager (EM) in the device control layer. The MADOCA-to-EPICS gateway is implemented as a general-purpose EM to handle EPICS IOCs. The gateway consists of EM functions that interact with IOCs using Channel Access (CA) protocol corresponding to EPICS commands such as caget, caput and camonitor. We can build the gateway for the target EPICS device by editing the EM configuration file, without any programming. We have applied the gateway to the Libera Brilliance⁺ installed in the SPring-8 storage ring for the evaluation towards the SPring-8 upgrade project. In addition, it has been applied to the Libera Brilliance Single Pass and Spark installed in beam transport line, and the Libera Spark and Cavity installed in SACLA. The gateway brings us the benefits to minimize the installation time and effort even for the different platform (CPU and OS) devices. We will report on the development and advantage as well as the performance improvement of the MADOCA-to-EPICS gateway.
