SESAME-TAC2013-Ibrahim Saleh-Abdallah Ismail4 Motion Control System XPS-Q8 Compared to other controllers - Price is expensive (about $14k for 8-Axis) - Advanced options will not be required for SESAME beamlines - Most compatible with Newport motor stages - Mostly used in the US Other Alternatives ?? - BMAC (Cheap price, EPICS compatible, not installed before for the beamlines) - Galil (EPICS compatible, used at AUS & SOLEIL) - Beckhoff (TwinCAT PLC, Easy Installed, EPICS not fully tested,)
