Abstract: Diamond Light Source has designed and constructed twelve permanent magnet insertion devices over the past five years. These are ten In-vacuum undulators and two Ex-vacuum Apple II undulators. For all of these a common control system has been used. This uses a VME based motor controller, and a separate PLC subsystem for protection. The VME system runs EPICS to integrate in with overall control system. Two new designs of Insertion Device are currently in progress, which will require variants of this control system. The design for these control systems, issues experienced, and operational performance will be presented.
