  A new beam diagnostics system is under construction at the Siemens Healthcare Sector facility in Rudolstadt, Germany. The project goal is to develop, commission and operate a beam diagnostics system to characterize the compact medical linear electron accelerators and help improve the quality of their output beam. A brief system description together with the main electron beam parameters is given. The diagnostics will allow the characterization of the compact linear accelerators by measuring beam intensity/charge using a toroid, transverse beam profile using scintillating screens and transverse beam emittance by means of the quadrupole scan method. In the longitudinal plane the energy and energy spread will be determined using a spectrometer magnet.
