Magnet power supplies in the PSI accelerator complex with there control and fieldbus are old, some components are more then 30 years old. To guarantee further maintenance and to meet the more demanding specifications for operation with the 2mA beam, they have to be replaced. The switched power supplies, developed for SLS, will be used. This implies a mayor redesign of part of the accelerator control system, which is now based on CAMAC, ROAD-C and other in house developed hardware including the machine protection system. The modified control for the new setup will be based on VME and alternatively CAMAC, with dedicated processors for the functionality of the machine protection system.
