The Turbo-ICT current sensor and BCM-RF-E electronics receiver perform bunch charge or average current measurements with low noise and high accuracy.
Turbo-ICT relies on the detection of a single spectral ray of the beam bunch. The beam bunch being very short, it behaves like a Dirac. So, all spectral rays have the same intensity.
Turbo-ICT and BCMRF-E operate at 180 MHz, a rather quiet zone in the overall frequency spectrum.
- Bunch length ≤ 100 ps
- Resolution of 10 fCrms or 1 % of a single pulse charge
- Bunch repetition rate ≤ 2 MHz

BCM-RF-E allows two modes of operation:
- Track-Continuous mode for CW beam and long macropulses.
- Sample&Hold mode for single bunch, with auto trigger feature.
Output is logarithmically proportional to beam current or bunch charge.
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.
- 80dB measurement range without range switching
- Resolution 1% / accuracy 4% of measured value
- DC Output voltage, logarithmically proportional to input current or input charge
- USB 2.0 controls and readout up to 5kS/s
- Negligible magnetic field dependence
- UHV compatible down to 1E-10 mbar
