The LIPAc accelerator will be a 9 MeV, 125 mA CW deuteron accelerator which aims to validate the technology that will be used in the future IFMIF accelerator. Several types of Beam Position Monitors –BPM’s- are placed in each section of the accelerator to ensure a good beam transport and minimize beam losses. Prototypes of almost all the BPM’s have been already fabricated. Acceptance tests have been carried out on each device. The output of the vacuum leak tests and electrical tests will be analyzed in this contribution. In addition, the test bench to characterize the BPM’s has been upgraded and validated using some prototypes in order to obtain a better global measurement accuracy of the electrical center offset. The test bench can be used to crosscheck the simulations with the real response of each BPM. The result of the comparison will be discussed in detail.

The AMIT cyclotron will be a 8.5 MeV, 10 μA CW H accelerator which aims to deliver a beam for radioisotope production. In order to properly validate all the beam commissioning steps, a set of diagnostics needs to be implemented. They must cover all the commissioning phases: ion source characterization, medium energy acceleration and nominal energy at full current. Due to compactness of the design, the number of beam diagnostics is limited and restricted to the most essential ones during operation. An overview of the diagnostics that are planned for the characterization of the cyclotron will be discussed in this contribution. In all the commissioning phases, beam current probes are essential to validate the cyclotron and each subsystem. As a main diagnostic, a moveable probe has been designed and simulated for optimization of the cyclotron. The thermal simulations of the probe and the mechanical integration will be presented.
