  The European Spallation Source, currently under construction in Lund, Sweden, will be a neutron source based on partly superconducting linac, accelerating protons to 2GeV with a peak current of 62.5mA, ultimately delivering a 5MW beam to a rotating tungsten target. For a successful tuning and operation of a linac, a Beam Loss Monitoring (BLM) system is required. The system is designed to protect the machine from beam-induced damage and unnecessary activation of the components. This contribution focuses on one of the BLM systems to be deployed at the ESS linac, namely the neutron sensitive BLM (nBLM). Recently, test of the nBLM data acquisition chain including the detector has been performed at LINAC4, at CERN. The test represents first evaluation of the system prototype in realistic environment. Results of the test will be presented together with an overview of the ESS nBLM system.

  The European Spallation Source, currently under construction in Lund, Sweden, will be a neutron source based on partly superconducting linac, accelerating protons to 2GeV with a peak current of 62.5mA, ultimately delivering a 5MW beam to a rotating tungsten target. One of the most critical elements for the protection of an accelerator is its Beam Loss Monitoring (BLM) system. The system is designed to protect the machine from beam-induced damage and unnecessary activation of the components. This contribution focuses on one of the BLM systems to be deployed at the ESS linac, namely the Ionisation Chamber based BLM (ICBLM). Several test campaigns have been performed at various facilities. Results of these tests will be presented here together with an overview of the ESS ICBLM system.

  The European Spallation Source (ESS) will be a 5 MW pulsed neutron source, relying on a 2 GeV linac delivering 2.86 ms long pulses with 14 Hz repetition rate. During the commissioning and the tuning phases of the ESS linac, four Faraday Cups (FC) serve as beam dumps and provide an absolute measurement of the proton beam current. This contribution summarizes the challenges in the design and production of all the FCs mainly requiring: - Thermo-mechanical analysis to keep heat load and mechanical stress below the mechanical limits; - Inclusion of an electron repeller to prevent the escape of secondary charged particles from the cup that would limit the accuracy of the current measurements; - Monte Carlo simulations to compute material activation, dose at contact and corresponding necessary shielding; - Design of high-resolution detection circuits for low current to fulfill the requirements on bandwidth, gain and noise. In addition, the performance of the LEBT FC during the commissioning of the ion source and LEBT is reported. The LEBT FC system is under continuous improvement and serves as benchmark for the protection from unwanted operation, and in case of actuator or cooling faults.
