Due to its complexity, nuclear reactor instrument automation is a challenge to engineers. High investment and running costs of a nuclear research reactor imply the use of advanced equipment and concepts for instrument automation when striving for high performance, reliability, and operational convenience under budgetary pressure. The article describes a successfully operating instrument automation system stressing the important underlying concepts trying to avoid too much details on specific hardware which is dependent on the time when one must order things.
