  The commissioning of the first SwissFEL undulator line (Aramis) is planned for the beginning of 2017. Each undulator is equipped with a 5-axis camshaft system to remotely adjust its position in the micrometer range and a gap drive system to set K-values between 0.1 and 1.8. In the following paper the beam-based alignment of the undulator with respect to the golden orbit, the definition of look-up tables for the local correction strategy (minimization of undulator field errors), the fine-tuning of the K-values as well as the setting of the phase shifters are addressed. When applicable both electron beam and light based methods are presented and compared.

  The first undulator prototype (U15) was assembled and magnetically tested. The instrumentation and the algorithms developed for the undulator optimization are presented and a comparison among different approaches is reviewed. The magnetic measurement results before and after the installation of the vacuum components are discussed. The summary of the undulator test with 100 MeV electron beam is presented and the impact of the radiation on the magnetics is addressed.

  In the frame of the SwissFEL project a soft x-ray line is planned in the coming years to cover the wavelength between 0.7 and 7.0nm. Based on the good experience at the SLS storage ring with Apple undulator as source of variable polarized light, Apple III type undulators are also foreseen at the SwissFEL. In this paper the design of these devices is introduced and the preliminary magnetic configuration together with the optimization strategy is presented in details.

  There are currently three types of monitors planned for tracking and minimizing beam losses at the SwissFEL. Fiber-based loss monitors will provide information on the longitudinal loss location, help reduce losses at undulators and measure losses due to insertion of wire scanners for transverse beam profile measurements. They shall be integrated to the Machine Protection System due to their fast response capabilities. The dose deposited over time at the undulators shall be measured with RadFETs and readout using the DOSFET L-02 reader. Characterization of all three types of loss monitors have been carried out at the SwissFEL Injector Test Facility. This contribution shall provide in-depth description of the monitors along with their complete readout chain and results from the characterization studies.
