Instrument control at ISIS is in the process of migrating from a mainly locally developed LabVIEW based system to an EPICS based one. The new control system, called IBEX, was initially used during commissioning of two new instruments, but is now being used on production systems. We will cover the architecture and design of the new control system, our choices of technologies, current status, and our plans for moving forward.
