The distance between the magnet poles is 90 mm. In solenoidal mode the beam must not exceed 55 mm diameter. For a 10 mm diameter beam at the sample, the maximum angular divergence of the scattered beam is +/- 8.4° in transverse mode or +/- 5.3° in solenoidal mode.
The magnet is fitted with a standard Tomkinson mounting flange which allows it to be used with ISIS CCR's, Orange cryostats, or the 'muon' optical furnace (NB: in an inert atmosphere, not a vacuum). Alternatively a range of User-provided apparatus can be fitted between the magnet poles.
The magnet requires 48 - 60 V d.c at 425 - 650 A, and a demineralised cooling water supply of 22 - 25 l/min at 5 bar.
