Abstract
The delay lines for the Magdalena Ridge Observatory Interferometer (MROI) will provide remote control of optical delays of up to 380m with sub-wavelength precision in vacuum. The delay-line prototype is now fully functional, all features having been demonstrated in a 20m long evacuated test rig. We describe the architecture, design and performance of the delay line software: this features distributed real-time control and flexible remote logging of diagnostic data from the delay line hardware components at up to 5 kHz.
