The superconducting synchrotron Nuclotron is the base of a new accelerator complex NICA designed at the LHEP, JINR. It is very important to monitor dynamics of its internal beam intensity during an acceleration cycle for proper tuning and functioning of the setup. The new parametric current transformer of Bergoz Instrumentation with frequency response DС to 10 kHz is used for measuring the beam DC intensity in the Nuclotron ring. Data acquisition is performed by multifunctional DAQ device NI6284 (18-bit) of National Instruments. The software complex provides an efficient work of intensity monitoring subsystem. It consists of the subsystem’s server and the several clients specialized for operators, stuff member and experimentalists. The software is designed in the TANGO Controls concept and fully integrated into the TANGO system of NICA. The structure, principle of functioning, operational experience in the recent Nuclotron runs and further improvement of the software complex are reported.
