Particle physics collider experiments at the high energy frontier are being performed today and in the next decade in increasingly harsh radiation environments. While designing detector systems adequate to these conditions provides a challenge in itself, their safe operation relies heavily on fast beam monitoring systems using novel radiation hard technologies to protect these expensive devices from beam accidents. The talk will present a beam condition monitoring (BCM) system based on polycrystalline chemical vapor deposition (pCVD) diamond sensors designed for the Collider Detector at Fermilab (CDF) experiment operating at Fermilab's Tevatron proton-antiproton synchrotron. We report our operational experience with this system which was installed in spring of last year. The system currently represents the largest of its kind operated at a hadron collider and is similar to designs being pursued by the next generation hadron collider experiments at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC).
