Graphical User Interface
A GUI package such as EDM (Editor/Display Manager) or MEDM (Motif EDM) is often used on the clients. These allow the creation and use of scales, pointers, text boxes, simple animations, etc.
A newer and Eclipse-based collection of tools for monitoring and operating large control systems is Control System Studio.
"Phoebus" is the latest update of Control System Studio (CS-Studio). Compared to the original development it is no longer dependent on Eclipse RCP. Instead, it offers Display Builder, Data Browser, Probe, PV Tree, Alarm, Scan, .... with integration to site-specific emails, logbooks, PV name completion in a more compact package.
