In this project, we study a new approach to make RSD compatible with user beam operation and provide a continuously updated online measurement. An array of four custom-made scintillation detectors has been installed around the beam pipe, downstream of collimators to capture the highest fraction of lost particles and maximize the count rate. The excitation is gated to half of the stored bunches and the acquisition system counts losses in both halves independently. Using the count in the un-excited part for normalisation suppresses external factors that modify the loss rate. Different parameters of the measurement, like excitation kick strength and duration have been explored to optimise depolarisation and to increase the reliability of the measurement.
