The ChimeraTK control system adapter (, formerly known as MTCA4U control system adapter) is currently being extended with features like limiters, engineering units and history. These improvements will bring the control system adapter from a proof of concept study to a tool for real life application. This meeting is a follow up of the "Control Systems in MT" session held at KIT in March 2016 ( It will focus on the feature extension and the status of the implementations for the different control systems (DOOCS, EPICS3, UPC-UA).

This is a satellite sesison of the 4th ARD-ST3 workshop held at HZB (
