  RIKEN Radioactive Isotope Beam Factory (RIBF) is a cyclotron-based heavy-ion accelerator facility for producing unstable nuclei and studying their properties. Many components of the RIBF accelerator complex are controlled by using the Experimental Physics and Industrial Control System (EPICS). We will here present the overview of the EPICS-based RIBF control system and its latest update work in progress. We are developing a new beam interlock system from scratch for applying to some of the small experimental facility in the RIBF accelerator complex. The new beam interlock system is based on a programmable logic controller (PLC) as well as the existing beam interlock system of RIBF (BIS), however, we newly employ a Linux-based PLC-CPU on which EPICS programs can be executed in addition to a sequencer in order to speed up the system. After optimize the performance of the system while continuing operation, we plan to expand the new system as a successor to the BIS that has been working more than 10 years since the start of its operation.

  The operational log system is one of the electric log systems for recording and viewing the accelerator operation time and contents of an operated device. Zlog (Zope-based log system)* developed by KEK was utilized for the RIBF control system. Zope is an open-source Web server and Web application framework written in Python. Using the Web application, information on accelerator operation is designated by a character string on Web browsers. However, the displayed string character on the Web browser will be complex for accelerator operators because many parameters are changed in accelerator operation, though the Web-based system has many advantages. For smoother accelerator operation, an ergonomically designed operational log system is required. Therefore, we developed a new operational log system for RIBF control system. The new system is possible to provide operational logs with a variety of rich GUI components. As of now, the operational log system has been working for accelerator operation by monitoring approximately 3,000 points as the EPICS record without any serious problem.
