Hi EPICS users:

I am helping construct a SCADA system for a molten-salt test loop at Abilene Christian University for research in to Gen IV molten-salt nuclear reactors.  We have presently been using MIDAS (physics slow-controls, mid-size experiments, NIFFTE experiment at LANL) quite happily for DAQ, but I am suggesting our team gain skill in the EPICS tools and methods.  Before we start that learning, I want to ask the group... for accelerators, large experiment, and highly distributed control systems, is EPICS still the "best" choice these days?  Meaning, are you guys starting to lean towards other software architectures, or is EPICS #1?  I come from a real-time embedded system hardware/software background, so to me EPICS seems the right choice, but l also would like to know any alternatives that come close.

Thanks,
