The purpose of the CERN Control Centre (CCC) is to combine the control rooms of the Laboratory’s eight accelerators, as well as the piloting of cryogenics and technical infrastructures. The performance of the LHC depends on the injector chain that feeds it. The CCC helps control this extensive process by joining all of the accelerator operators with the engineering and cryogenics departments. By coordinating the process of injection, the CCC guarantee a high-quality beam. The centre also manages the beams of CERN’s other facilities. Similar to a rail network that uses the same infrastructure to send passengers toward various destinations, the accelerators of CERN can transport several beams simultaneously and adapt each one to a given facility. It is this ability to deal with several beams at the same time that makes CERN a unique laboratory in its field of research.
