  The TRIUMF Advanced Rare Isotope Laboratory (ARIEL) is funded since 2010 June by federal and BC Provincial governments. In collaboration with the University of Victoria, TRIUMF is proceeding with construction of a new target building, connecting tunnel, rehabilitation of an existing vault to contain the electron linear accelerator, and a cryogenic compressor building. TRIUMF starts construction of a 300 keV thermionic gun, and 10 MeV Injector cryomodule (EINJ) in 2012; the designs being complete. The 25 MeV Accelerator Cryomodule will follow in 2013. TRIUMF is embarking on major equipment purchases and has signed contracts for 4K cryogenic plant and a 290kW CW klystron, and four 1.3 GHz Nb 9-cell cavities from a local Canadian supplier. Moreover, the low energy beam transport is under construction; and detailing of two intra-cryomodule beam transports has just begun. Procurements are anticipated in mid 2012 for (i) the entire facility quadrupole magnets, and (ii) the klystron's 600kW HV power supply.

The TRIUMF electron linac will include a suite of diagnostics systems, including current, beam position, and beam profile monitors. This talk will present an overview of the diagnostic systems and give details about the view screen system, having both scintillator and OTR foils. Results from tests with the prototype low energy beam transport system will be shown. Diagnostic systems are particularly challenging for the e-linac due to the 500 kW beam power envisaged, with beam currents up to 10 mA at 50 MeV.
