CERN and ETM (Siemens) team up on Industrial Control Systems

The human-machine interface helps visualise the measurements from industrial control and automation systems. Day-to-day LHC operations require a large number of highly specialised control systems, one such example being the system to manage the complex LHC’s cryogenic system. For over 15 years, CERN has been using a Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) system called Simatic WinCC Open Architecture (WinCC OA), which has been developed by the ETM company, a 100% owned subsidiary of Siemens AG, headquartered in Austria.
