Abstract: Diamond is a new 3rd generation synchrotron light source currently being commissioned in the UK. The control system for Diamond is a site-wide monitoring and control system for the accelerators, beamlines and conventional facilities. This paper presents the design and implementation of the Diamond control system, which is based on the EPICS control system toolkit. It describes the detailed choice of hardware and software, the solutions realised for interfacing and control of the major technical systems of Diamond, and progress on installation and commissioning.
