The Accelerator Operations and Technology division is upgrading the control system for a 33-ton shield door that will be used when the Cathodes and RF Interactions in Extremes (CARIE) accelerator begins operations. The door was installed in the 1990¿s but safety standards such as ISO 13849-1 have since emerged which provide safety requirements and guidance on the principles for the design and integration of safety-related parts of a control system. Applying this standard, a safety controller, safety relays and a light curtain barrier have been added to eliminate injury and exposure of personnel to potential hazards during door operations.
