The Prompt Gamma-ray activation Analysis system (PGA) installed in the Japan Research Reactor-3 (JRR-3) was automated between 2012 and 2013. This automation is a good example of a large-scale old analytical device automated in a nuclear facility. This automatic system has several useful functions, such as automatic sample exchange and analysis, automatic helium gas flow control and flow channel switching function, automatic neutron recording system, and fail-safe function using Machine Vision, and the Internet. The analysis system was automated using a vertical revolute joint robot, control programs, and data acquisition devices. The main control software named AutoPGA was developed using LabVIEW and the program can control all functions of the automatic system, capable of analysing up to 14 samples automatically. In the automation, the core of the PGA system was not modified and the extremely low background level of $$gamma$$ rays was maintained well; however, the efficiency of routine measurements dramatically increased.
