    Abstract

    The need for adequate test equipment for the determination of relevant properties of superconducting cables at medium magnetic fields and high-currents was the main motivation to construct a new facility. In this facility superconducting cables of which one or several turns are wound with a diameter of 20 cm, can be investigated experimentally in a magnetic field of 7 tesla and a test current between 25 and 50 kA. This paper deals with the magnet system, the cryogenic power supply and describes the testing features of the system.
