Upgraded control system for the 250 t press and detector support in 13-BM-D. The five-axis detector manipulation subsystem (module 1) and the four-axis press subsystem (module 2) are aligned on a same pair of rails. This allows the sample-detector distance to be varied as needed. A narrow frame was added between the two subsystems (not shown), for supporting the imaging setup (phosphor assembly, imaging camera) and ion chamber, etc., as well as their linear motion control components
