Measurement of the mean beam current on particle accelerators (beam stopper)
Cup and shield: Copper
Cup support: Stainless Steel
Cup insulation: Ceramics
Max. beam power: 24kW (water cooled)
Max. high voltage: 2500V
UHV-Feedthrough: Air actuated Feedthrough
The accelerated particles are stopped in the cup and the caught electric charge is detected as a corresponding electric current. The Faraday-cup can be moved in the beam by means of a compressed air actuated vacuum feedthrough.
