Nowadays VME based systems to control neutron measurement instruments are forcing out those built with PC and CAMAC. One of the several alternative solutions is presented here. Its main feature is the implementation of the entire system on the VME site. Both, the hardware and the software parts are considered. The instrument can be controlled locally or remotely via local network (even from PCs) with a modern-styled graphical user interface.
