  In order to meet the increasing demand for XFEL user operation, the second undulator beamline (BL2) will be installed during the 2014 summer shutdown at SACLA. Following the installation of BL2, a pulse by pulse electron beam distribution system composed of a kicker and a DC twin-septum magnet, which are currently under development, is planned be installed in January 2015. To distribute the electron beam on a bunch-to-bunch basis, the electron beam is deflected into 0 and ±10 mrad directions at 60 Hz by the kicker, and then the DC twin-septum magnet augments the separation angle to ±50 mrad. The kicker magnet is driven by a 60 Hz trapezoidal waveform and stability less than 30 ppm (peak-peak) has been achieved. This pulse by pulse distribution system will be also used for the beam injection to the upgraded low emittance ring of SPring-8 (SPring-8-II) in future. Since the SPring-8-II storage ring has a small dynamic aperture, low emittance is required for the injection beam. Also the beam injection in parallel with the XFEL operation enables to save the running cost of the injector during top-up operation.
