Open Source

Tango is an Open Source solution for SCADA and DCS. Open Source means you get all the source code under an Open Source free licence (LGPL and GPL). Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) systems are typically industrial type systems using standard hardware. Distributed Control Systems (DCS) are more flexible control systems used in more complex environments. Sardana is a good example of a Tango based Beamline SCADA.

Sardana Continuous Scans Workshop

Hybrid: SOLARIS + Zoom

Dear Tango Community!

We are pleased to invite you to join the Sardana Workshop dedicated to the continuous scans.

Sardana Continuous Scans Workshop will be hosted by the SOLARIS and held on September 20th & 21st 2023. Speakers and attendees are welcome on-site but the sessions will be also accessible remotely.  

The main goal of the meeting is to share experience in the field of continuous scans and to look for possible ways of collaboration. For that reason, we have also invited speakers of similar frameworks to contribute with presentations  (Bliss, Bluesky, Flyscan - to be confirmed, DESY, PSI and Diamond). 

As a secondary goal, we would like to discuss possible solutions for Sardana continuous scans missing features and discuss a roadmap for the eventual enhancement projects.

Please follow this link to register:

We are looking forward to hearing about your experience and ideas with continuous scans.

Kind regards,

Michał on behalf of the organisation team
