  TRIUMF laboratory is currently in a phase of the construction of a superconducting 50 MeV 10 mA cw electron 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 microsecond beam pulses to the cw regime. Diagnostics development interleaves with the construction of the diagnostics instrumentation required for the test facility which delivered the first beam in Fall of 2011. The paper reports the present status of various diagnostics systems along with measurement results obtained at the test facility.
