  TRIUMF laboratory is currently in a phase of the construction of a new superconducting 50 MeV 10 mA cw electron linac (e-linac) to drive photo-fission based rare radioactive isotope beam (RIB) production. The project imposes certain technical challenges on various accelerator systems including beam diagnostics. In the first place these are a high beam power and strongly varying operating modes ranging from very short beam pulses to the cw regime. A number of development projects have been started to construct the diagnostics instrumentation required for commissioning and operation of the facility. The paper reports the present status of the projects along with measurement results obtained at the test facility which produced the first beam in Fall of 2011.
