The superconducting Darmstadt linear accelarator S-DALINAC is designed for accelerating electrons up to energies of 130 MeV for measurements in nuclear physics at small momentum transfers. For the purpose of machine protection and in order to increase reliability and efficiency an efficient tool for on-line measurements of beam losses down to electron energies of 1 MeV is desirable. Therefore a system of beam-loss monitors has been developed, installed, and tested. The system consists of commercially availiable PIN-diods and newly developed electronics. Implementation in the S-DALINAC's control system is done via EPICS IOC. We will report on the setup of the beam-loss monitoring system and on its initial performance in first tests.
