Control & Electronics

The EMIR control software and electronic system have been developed by a multi-institutional group formed by scientist and engineers from IAC, UCM and LAOMP, under the coordination of the IAC. It has been adopted a unique structure for control software and electronics aimed in the simplification of the interfaces and to make easier the flow of information in these two fields with high interaction.

Control System

There are four main aspects in the control system that have been considered as integral part of the instrument:



The electronics of EMIR involves mainly the Detector Electronics and testing, the mechanisms electronics and all the monitoring and housekeeping electronics.
