  The Injector 2 at PSI (Paul Scherrer Institut), is a 72 MeV separate sector cyclotron producing a high intensity proton beam up to 3 mA CW, which is subsequently injected to the 590 MeV Ring Cyclotron. The injection energy of the pre-bunched beam is 870 keV at an intensity of 10 to 11 mA. In this paper we describe a full 3D model of the PSI injector 2, starting just before the two bunchers and including the multi stage collimation scheme in the cyclotron. The precise beam dynamics model is based on the OPAL (Object Oriented Parallel Accelerator Library) simulation code. OPAL is a tool for charged-particle optic calculations in large accelerator structures and beam lines including 3D space charge. The presented model will be validated with data from radial profile measurements and loss rates from the collimators and the electrostatic septum in the Injector 2. Based on this model we will estimate the intensity limit of this machine and comment of future operation modes.
