Diamond Light Source - Insertion Device Control

Application: Production Insertion Device Control
Installation Area: Didcot, Oxon, UK
Client: Diamond Light Source Limited

SELLA CONTROLS was awarded a contract for the provision of a Production Insertion Device Control, by Diamond Light Source Limited, Didcot, UK.

SELLA CONTROLS will also connect each control system to the appropriate ID structure in the Diamond Assembly building. Included too, is the fixing of junction boxes and motion stop buttons to ID structure and termination of all cables to structure-mounted components. Initial testing of system functionality, detailed manufacturing, test and QA documentation are all also part of the contract.

Diamond Light Source is a new synchrotron being built next to the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory in Oxfordshire and is the largest investment in the UK for 30 years. It will produce ultra-violet, infra-red and X-ray beams of exceptional brightness, allowing pioneering experiments to be carried out which probe deep into the basic structure of matter and materials. The facility will comprise a 3 GeV electron storage ring, injected from a 100 MeV linac through a full energy booster synchrotron, and an initial complement of seven experimental stations. The synchrotron radiation for the first seven beamlines is to be produced by insertion devices.
