The read-out system for the Aleph central tracking detector, a large Time Projection Chamber (TPC), consists of more than 100 Fastbus crates with approximately 1000 Fastbus modules. We briefly present the detector and its associated electronics, followed by a more detailed description of the read-out and control system.
