The design of the SwissFEL the RF system consists of four different modulator types from two manufacturers, Ampegon and Scandinova, supporting three different frequency bands, S-Band, C-Band, and X-Band. To enable the operator a transparent operation of all modulators without specific knowledge about the underlying device we present the EPICS RF control system, which provides a generic interface for all modulator types.
