	Folks,

We are starting to design the Machine Protection System for SPEAR3.  One of the options we are considering is the Allen-Bradley SLC 5/05 which comes with an Ethernet interface.  Is there EPICS support for this interface?  Does anyone have suggestions for a communications interface--Ethernet, DeviceNet, ControlNet or the tried-and-true Blue Hose?  Is anyone using the new generation of Allen-Bradley processors, the ControlLogix family?  Any other advice about MPS systems and EPICS at this early stage of our thinking would be greatly appreciated.

                                   --Harvey
