  With refrigerating power of the order of 1.5 kW at -35 °C and full compatibility with Detector Control System standards, Light Use Cooling Appliance for Surface Zones (LUCASZ) is the first movable medium size evaporative CO2 detector cooling system. By 2018 a series of 4 LUCASZ units has been fully deployed by the EP-DT group at CERN. LUCASZ is capable to provide CO2 cooling for various needs of detector development and testing required for Phase I&II upgrades of LHC experiments. This paper describes selected software and controls hardware ideas used to develop the LUCASZ control system as baseline solutions for CO2 cooling systems for Phase II upgrade of ATLAS and CMS trackers. The main challenges for future control system development will come from the number of cooling plants, the modularity, operation, and the implementation of backup philosophy. The introduction of automated software generation for both PLC and SCADA is expected to bring major improvement on the efficiency of control system implementation. In this respect, a unification step between experiments is highly required without neglecting specific needs of ATLAS and CMS.
