  Historically Diamond's photon front-ends have adopted control systems based on the VMEbus platform. With increasing pressure towards improved system versatility, space constraints and the issues of long term support for the VME platform, a programme of migration to distributed remote I/O control systems was undertaken. This paper reports on the design strategies, benefits and issues addressed since the new design has been operational.
