The CFETR, "China Fusion Engineering Test Reactor," is a new tokamak device. Its magnet system includes the toroidal field (TF), central solenoid (CS), and poloidal field coils. The main goal of this study is to build a fusion engineering tokamak reactor with fusion power of 50-200 MW and self-sufficiency by blanket. The maximum field of CS and TF will get around 15 T, which is much higher than that of other reactors. New materials could be used to develop themagnet technology for the next generation of fusion reactors. Bi2Sr2CaCu2Ox is considered as a potential material for the superconducting magnets. AnR&Dactivity is running at ASIPP for the feasibility demonstration of cable-in-conduit conductor based on the Bi2212 wire. One subsize conductor cabled with 42 wires was designed and manufactured. In this paper, the manufacturing procedures and first test results of Bi-2212 conductor samples are described in details, including wire specifications, cabling and compaction process, conductor heat treatment, as well as test results on ac loss and critical current.
