Abstract: WFCAM is a new wide field camera for the UK Infrared Telescope, and is currently under construction at the UK Astronomy Technology Centre. The software written for WFCAM includes a camera control and acquisition system, a survey definition system and instrument control systems. The software for control and acquisition of the science detectors has been designed as four separate channels, one for each detector, to ensure robustness and to handle the high data rate (120 GBytes per night).
