Abstract: Diamond is a new third generation 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, procurement and installation of the control system is presented. This work includes refinement in the choice of EPICS tools, and the development of additional tools and applications. The design being realised for the control system structure, includes solutions for interfacing to technical systems, control system networking, machine protection, and the physical implementation.
