  This contribution presents the development of the data acquisition (DAQ) system for the readout of fast beam current transformers (FCT) as installed in the GSI synchrotron SIS18 and as foreseen in several FAIR ring accelerators. Fast current transformers are reliable devices that offer a large analogue bandwidth and can therefore monitor bunch structures with high resolution. At appropriate sampling rates continuous measurements throughout repeated machine cycles lead to a large amount of raw data. The analysis of those raw data may range from simple bunch parameter calculations to complex longitudinal phase space reconstructions. Consequently, a new DAQ system must be carefully designed to allow for flexible acquisition modes or to allow for data reduction methods in special applications. The aims of the development are discussed and the status of the new DAQ is presented.
