  The next generation light sources will require Beam Position Monitoring systems capable of performing high resolution measurements as well as assuring long-term measurement stability. One possible solution to stabilize the position measurements long-term drifts is using a pilot-tone signal which is transferred together with the BPM signal and measured by the BPM electronics. To investigate this solution, Elettra Sincrotrone Trieste developed a pilot-tone injector which was used together with the commercial BPM readout electronics Libera Spark to validate the concept with several measurements related to the typical figures of merit of the BPM systems: position resolution, long-term drift and dependence from beam current and fill pattern. In addition, the behavior of the system was studied under different environmental conditions (changes in temperature and humidity). After the first measurements with beam at Elettra Sincrotrone Trieste, the test-setup was provided also to other laboratories and the measurement results are presented in this paper.
