ICT bandwidth is set to 12 MHz. It allows to transfer the bunch charge at a slow pace.
The ICT signal can be processed by the user or can beis integrated by the BCM-IHR.
The output voltage proportional to the beam pulse charge is available 30μs after the trigger. It is maintained up to 400μs, then reset. Another pulse can then be measured.
- Sensitivity (ICT alone) From 0.25 to 10 Vs/C
- Full Scale range From 800 pC to 400 nC
- Noise on single bunch 0.55 pC

TWO PACKAGING TYPE FOR THE ICT
- In-flange ICT are mounted directly in the beam line.
- Available for many pipe diameters from 1” to 250mm.
- Also with elliptical aperture or other arbitrary shape aperture. Ceramic gap, shields and wall current bypass are included.
- Bellows are not required.
- Material AISI-304, 316LN on option
- Bakeable up to 185°C
- UHV compatible
In-air ICT installation, over the vacuum chamber requires installation of a “gap” to prevent the wall current from flowing through the ICT aperture.
The gap can be a brazed ceramic ring or an organic material O-ring depending on the vacuum requirements.
Typical installations include bellows, a wall current bypass and an electromagnetic shield enclosing the ICT completely.
BCM-IHR-E processes the signal from an ICT.
Specially developed hybrid circuits amplify the charge and integrate it with low noise and high linearity.
Output is a bipolar voltage directly proportional to the beam charge.
A built-in Calibration Generator provides on-line assurance of measurement reliability.
BCM-IHR-E inserts into a wired station of BCM-RFC, the 19” 3U RF-shielded chassis including power supplies.
Up to 10 stations per chassis can be installed.
