  The accurate, non-destructive measurements of FEL pulse length and arrival time relative to an experimental laser are necessary for operators and users alike. The FEL operators can get a better understanding of their machine and the optics of an FEL by examining the pulse length changes of the photons coming to the user stations, and the users can use the arrival time and pulse length information to better understand their data. PSI has created the pulse arrival and length monitor (PALM) based on the THz-streak camera concept for measurement at x-ray FELs, meant to be used at the upcoming SwissFEL facility. The first results from the experimental beamtime at SACLA will be presented, showcasing the accuracy and reliability of the device. Further plans for improvement and eventual integration into SwissFEL will also be presented.
