Paper Abstract

GIANO is an ultra-stable IR echelle spectrometer, optimized for both low (R≃400) and high (R≃50,000) resolution, that will be installed at the Nasmyth-B focus of the Italian national telescope (TNG). At the beginning of this year the assembling phase of GIANO has started, at the Infrared Laboratory of INAFArcetri, and is currently in progress. We describe, here, the general control software structure of the instrument concerning both the user interface and the controls of all subsystems. We present also the software interface which provides the communication with the cryogenic system of the instrument and is handled by means of a Programmable Logic Controller.
