Cyclotron CV-28 is a circular multi-particle accelerator in operation at Instituto de Engenharia Nuclear (IEN). Originally dedicated to nuclear physics science, CV-28 has increasingly shifted its focus to commercial radioisotope manufacturing, owing to the demand for radiopharmaceuticals with short half-lives in nuclear medicine over the decades. The CV-28 has required several updates over the years in order to remain operational for so long. One of these updates was to ensure that the cyclotron control panel could display all safety-related parameters. This report summarizes the framework for monitoring safety parameters that is currently being developed.
