  The main challenges for the normal conducting magnet system are the very compact, low field, and high precision magnets for the ring-ring option and their rapid installation in the crowded LHC tunnel. The superconducting triplet magnets require strong gradients for the protons in close vicinity of a field-free region for the electrons. The field requirements for the ring-ring option allow a number of different magnet designs using the well-proven Nb-Ti superconductor technology and making use of the cable development for the LHC. The separation distance between the electron and proton beams in Q1 requires a half-aperture quadrupole design to limit the overall synchrotron radiation power emitted by the bending of the electron beam. The requirements in terms of aperture and field gradient are more difficult to obtain for the Linac-Ring option. Consequently we present the limitations for the field gradient and septum size achievable with both Nb-Ti and Nb3Sn superconducting technologies.
