The superconducting FLASH user facility (Free electron LASer in Hamburg) accelerates 10 electron bunch trains per second, which are mostly used to produce high brilliance XUV and soft X-ray pulses. Each train usually contains up to 600 electron bunches with a typical charge between 100 pC and 1 nC and a minimum bunch spacing of 1 us. Various types of beam position monitors (BPM) are built in three electron beam lines, having a single bunch resolution of 2-100 um rms. This paper presents multi-bunch position measurements for various types of BPMs and built in at various locations. The dependency of the resolution on the beam offset is also shown.
