Abstract

The control system for the STAR experiment at RHIC is presented. The VME-based architecture is described. Reasons for the hardware and software choices are discussed. A significant new application of a slow control system (EPICS) to a run control setting is discussed. Interfaces to the detector subsystems are described. The initial implementation of the control systems for the baseline STAR detector is summarized.
