"The Soreq Applied Research Accelerator Facility (SARAF) is a 5-40 MeV, 0.04-2 mA proton/deuteron RF superconducting linear accelerator, which is under commissioning at Soreq NRC. SARAF will be a multi-user facility, whose main activities will be neutron physics and applications, radio-pharmaceuticals development and production, and basic nuclear physics research. The SARAF Control System is based on National Instruments and Siemens hardware and software. This paper presents an overview of the design concepts and implementation of the main and auxiliary SARAF control systems. "
