Abstract Bunch Arrival time Monitor (BAM) is a precise beam diagnostics instrument assessing the accelerator stability on-line. It is one of the most important components of the SwissFEL facility at the Paul Scherrer Institute (PSI). The overall monitor complexity demands the development of an extremely reliable control system that handles basic BAM operations. A prototype of such a system was created at PSI. The system is very flexible. It provides a set of tools allowing one to implement a number of advanced control features such as tagging experimental data with a SwissFEL machine pulse number or embedding high level control applications into the process controllers (IOC). The paper presents the structure of the BAM control setup. The operational experience with this setup is also discussed.
