AB  - The Front End Test Stand (FETS) [1] is a high energy pulsed proton driver that aims to produce a perfectly chopped 50 Hz, 60 mA, 2 ms H’ beam. FETS consists of a Penning Ion source, Low Energy Beam Transport (LEBT), 4 m long bolted construction 324 MHz four vane Radio Frequency Quadrupole (RFQ). The H’ Beam will be perfectly chopped so that bunches of particles can be trapped and accelerated with very low loss into a circular accelerator. To protect personnel from X-ray radiation along with prompt neutrons & gamma radiation, a concrete block-house has been built around the facility and a personnel interlock and search system developed. This paper discusses the mechanical and electrical systems used to ensure personnel safety via the Personnel Protection System (PPS) and machine safety by use of a Programmable Logic Controller, (PLC), used as the Machine Interlock Systems.
