Abstract: The Diamodn Timing System is the latest generation development of the design, principles and technologies currently implemented in the Advanced Photon Source and Swiss Light Source timing systems. It provides the ability to generate reference events, distribute them over a fibre-optic network, and decode and process them at the equipment to be controlled. The timing system has now been in operation for more than a year, but questions of time stability, response time, etc. are still critical for us and for builders of future machines. This paper presents the methodology and results of time measurements for the timing system as a whole (including the fibre-optic network) and for its individual components.
