Abstract: Diamond is a new synchrotron light source currently being designed and constructed in the UK. The control system for Diamond will be a site-wide monitoring and control system for the accelerators, beamlines and conventional facilities. Progress on the detailed design of the control system is presented. This includes refinement in the choice of EPICS tools, the development of tools and applications, and design of the control system structure, including solutions for interface options, control system networking, machine protection, wide band signals and physical implementation.
