The Muon Campus (MC) is able to measure muon g-2 with high precision and comparing its value to the theoretical prediction. The MC has four 300 KW screw compressors, four liquid helium refrigerators. The centerpiece of the muon g-2 experiment at Fermilab is a large, 50-foot-diameter superconducting muon storage ring. This one-of-a-kind ring, made of steel, aluminum and superconducting wire, was built for the previous g-2 experiment at Brookhaven. Each subsystem has to be far away from each other and be placed in distant locations. Therefore choosing Siemens Process Control System PCS7-400, Automation Direct DL205 PLC, DL05 PLC, Synoptic and Fermilab ACNET HMI are the ideal choices as the Muon Campus g-2 cryogenic distribution real-time and on-Line remote control system. This paper presents a method which has been successfully used by many Fermilab distribution cryogenic real-time and On-Line remote control systems.
