This paper proposes HVEM Control System, which is the cornerstone for teleinstrumentation infrastructure. The proposed system is oriented for people whose primary work is to get access to a remotely located instrument, a High-Voltage Electron Microscope (HVEM). Our system is implemented to fulfill all the necessary requirements in allowing the user to 1) control every single part of HVEM in a fine-grained manner, 2) check the HVEM and observe various states of sample, and 3) take their high resolution images of the sample. In that aspect, this paper suggests an HVEM Control System designed on the concept of the Grid and Web Service which satisfies various types of user groups, explains novel characteristics of our system.
