In the frame of the material research for future fusion reactors, the construction of a simplified facility of IFMIF*, the so-called IFMIF/DONES** (Demo-Oriented Neutron Early Source), to generate sufficient material damage for the new design of DEMO . DONES will be a 40 MeV, 125 mA deuteron accelerator. The 5 MW beam will impact in a lithium flow target to yield a neutron source The detailed design of the DONES accelerator is being designed within EUROFUSION-WPENS project. One of the most critical tasks of the accelerator will be to identify the layout of beam diagnostics along the accelerator. This instrumentation must guarantee the high availability of the whole accelerator system and the beam characteristics and machine protection. This contribution will describe the beam diagnostics selected along the accelerator, focusing in the High Energy Beam Transport line, in charge of shaping the beam down to the high power target. The main open questions will be analyzed and the path to obtain the detailed design by the end of the project detailed.

The LIPAc accelerator will be a 9 MeV, 125 mA CW deuteron accelerator which aims to validate the technology that will be used in the future IFMIF accelerator. Several types of Beam Position Monitors BPMs- are placed in each section of the accelerator to ensure a good beam transport and minimize beam losses. LIPAc is presently under installation and commissioning of the second acceleration stage at 5 MeV. In this stage two types of BPMs are used: four striplines to control the position at the Medium Energy Beam Transport line (MEBT), and three striplines to precisely measure the mean beam energy at the Diagnostics Plate. The seven pickups have been installed and assembled in the beamlines after characterization in a wire test bench, and are presently been commissioned in the facility. In addition, the in-house acquisition system has been fully developed and tested in the wire test bench at CIEMAT. In this contribution, the results of the beam position monitors characterization, the tests carried out during the assembly and the first measurements with the electronics system will be reported.
