  After more than 15 years of stable operation it was time to develop a new standard experiment control and data acquisition system for HZB beamlines. The aim is to create a modular system based on commercial hardware components. Because of the convincing hardware interfacing and good experience with PXI devices we choose this as hardware platform and LabVIEW as software development system. Starting in late 2015, we developed a framework with modules for configuration, (scan) processing, device communication, logging etc. The user interface is bisected as (i) graphical and (ii) scripting version. Where the 'included' script engine is python. The system serves both, standard commissioning tools as well as specialised instrument setups. It is integrated into the metadata catalogue system (ICAT) of the HZB in terms of collecting log and meta data and storing those according to the data policy of the institute. We will present an overview of the system features in general and a specific instrument view of a rather complex beamline at HZB.
