  A large number of movable devices are present in the field of accelerators and must often be integrated in a control system. Typical examples of these systems are phase shifters and magnetic dipoles among others. The standard industrial control system UNICOS-CPC (UNified Industrial COntrol System for Continuous Process Control) provides a set of generic device types which matches the majority of the industrial equipment employed in process control. This new development extends it with additional device types for precise positioning equipment based on stepping motors. The paper focuses on how the integration on UNICOS was fulfilled, the potential use of the solution and the automatic integration with the CERN real-time FESA (FrontEnd Software Architecture) framework. Finally, it illustrates a couple of use cases that already incorporate the solution: the CTF3 facility, the two-beam acceleration scheme envisioned for CLIC (Compact Linear Collider) and the EuroCirCol project for the measurements of the beam screen prototype for the FCC-hh (Future Circular Collider proton-proton).
