Abstract An experiment to test the Time Reversal Invariance at COSY (TRIC) is under the preparation at the Forschungszentrum Jülich. This experiment requires a precise measurement of the beam life time. A high resolution beam current measurement system, based on Fast Current Transformer (FCT), is under the development for the COSY storage ring. The signal from the FCT is measured by a modern lock-in amplifier which is read out by a dedicated DAQ over an Ethernet. Additional instruments, equipped with Ethernet interface, can be implemented into this DAQ and read out synchronously with other systems necessary for the TRIC experiment. Relative resolution of 10⁻⁴, sufficient for the TRIC experiment, has been demonstrated at the test bench in the laboratory. Preliminary results of the system commissioning at COSY will be presented.
