    Thursday 9th of June, 2016 at 15:20, MAX IV was able to record the first data set at the BioMax beamline. We now have “1st light on a sample” and can thus credibly inaugurate MAX IV :-)


    We would like to thanks all the Tango community for their contribution.

    Elettra Sincrotrone Trieste is organizing a school on TANGO Controls. The lessons will be held in Trieste, Italy, on 4-8 July, 2016.
    The school will give 15 young graduates a general overview of the TANGO framework and the fundamentals to be able to develop software applications in the TANGO environment.
    Attendance and accommodation costs will be covered by Elettra Sincrotrone Trieste.
    For more information visit the web site of the school: http://www.elettra.eu/Conferences/2016/TANGO_School/

    The SKA LMC TANGO Harmonisation meeting was held this week in Trieste. The meeting started with TANGO training and then went on to discuss 20 of the typical SKA use cases on how to implement the Local Monitoring and Control (LMC) using TANGO. The meeting highlighted the  momentum of TANGO @ SKA. It was clear that a number of the sites working on SKA have acquired TANGO skills. The feedback provided by the experts allowed them to continue in the right direction. The SKA Office organised and chaired the meeting. TANGO is definitely picking up speed in the SKA project.

    The meeting was hosted by INAF Trieste in the historical conference centre at Trieste. Historical for TANGO because this was the place where TANGO was first publicly presented at the ICALEPCS 99 conference in 1999. Trieste was as usual a great place to meet and discuss about TANGO again.

  • 3-controls.png

    We are pleased to announce the creation of a new company named 3-Controls for doing Tango SCADA integration and services for industry. 

    Located in Krakow (Poland) 3-Controls will be the first company 100% dedicated to Tango.

    It does devices, integration and implementation of the Tango SCADA control system for the industry, research infrastructure and building infrastructure

    It  creates dedicated software for control and measurement systems according to customer requirements with the possibility of integration with other systems.

    Welcome to 3-Controls!

    A new era has about to start in the Tango Controls community with the Tango Controls Collaboration Contract! Four institutes, Elettra + Solaris + MAX IV + ESRF + ALBA,  have signed the Collaboration Contract. They will soon be joined by three other institutes. The Collaboration Contract will allow the Tango Controls community to have funds to maintain the common core of Tango. The signatories of the Collaboration Contract will together form the Executive Board which will be in charge of deciding what the finances should be spent on. The budget will help ensure the sustainability of Tango. Tasks which are lacking resources today can now be addressed in the interests of the whole community. The new contract is another step of Tango Controls in the direction of a long life with continuous improvements!

  • 100mA1.5GeV.png

    Dear Tangoers,

    I'm happy to announce that the Solaris finished the first stage of the commissioning. We have injected 200mA into the storage ring as well as ramped the beam to full 1.5GeV energy at more than 100mA. So, the Solaris future shines brightly :).

    Thank you All !!!

    Coming two months we have upgrade shutdown. We will install some additional RF cavities (so called Landau) into the storage ring, finish construction of the PEEM beamline and upgrade the control system to Tango 9. Next year we will proceed with commissioning of beamlines .

    A TANGO workshop was held at the ICALEPCS 2015 conference on Sunday 18 October. Approximately 40 people attended. The workshop introduced new users to the concepts of TANGO and then went on to describing the new features in TANGO 9. All demos were done using the TANGO Virtual machine. There were many questions and discussions were lively. We thank the participants for their contribution. The format of the workshop proved to be well adapted to the audience.Most people found it useful to attend and learned a lot (even the old hands).


  • TANGO_VM_desktop.png

    This is a reminder that the TANGO9 virtual machine is now available for download:


    The documentation is available online with the virtual machine.

    NOTE: use 7z to unzip it on Linux or unzip on Windows

    - Enumerated attribute (see doc chapter 7.2)
    - New event type: Device interface change (chapter 4.6.3)
    - Dynamic commands (C++)
    - A new polling algorithm (see doc chapter
    - C++: Doc re-organisation: Client and server reference classes are doxygen generated and available from the Tango   web site. Old chapter 6 in Tango book has been removed

    After having commissioned the linac in the spring and getting up to 10 turns a few times in recent weeks, we have now completed the crucial step of keeping electrons circulating in the 3 GeV ring while they lose energy and produce light.

    The control system, powered by Tango on steroids, has proven to be highly stable and scalable, controlling more than 7651 devices from hundreds of classes.

    We would like to thank the entire Tango community for their excellent work, as well as all of our industrial partners.


    The MAX IV KITS team


    Latest statistics:
    106 hosts
    1192 Server instances
    7651 devices
    284398 control points
    131553 attributes
    ​82408 commands

    The Prevac is a next company who would like to use TANGO CS for integration of their systems. They are a Polish company specialized in precision UHV technology.

    Month ago (16-20.07.2015), the Solaris has provided training to them. It is a part of collaboration on migration of their software platform to Tango. The migration has been triggered by MAX-IV who contracted to Prevac delivery of an UARPES end-station. It is then continuation of collaboration between Solaris and MAX-IV, too.
